Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year from AOC!


Cyber Electromagnetic Activity (CEMA) 2024
April 30 – May 2 | Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD

Theme: EW Overmatch – Reestablishing Dominance in the Electromagnetic Spectrum

Taking place at a critical juncture for electronic warfare (EW), CEMA 2024 marks a significant moment as the Army is on the verge of fielding terrestrial and airborne EW capabilities after a 30+ year hiatus.

You're invited to submit an original, unclassified abstract focused on one of the following key topics:

  • Science & Technology: Current, emerging and future trends in EW/Cyber/SIGINT/IO technologies, architecture, techniques, use of machine learning/artificial intelligence and other novel technologies
  • Acquisition Programs: Updates from key leadership, program and capability managers and policy makers on current and emerging programs of record, quick reaction capabilities and rapid prototyping efforts
  • Exercises & Experimentation: Lessons learned from CEMA exercises and experimentation
  • DOTMLPF-P: Integrating holistic CEMA solutions into Army and Joint formations in support of multidomain operations
  • From the Field: Feedback on current employment of CEMA capabilities from operational units, emerging CONOPS, TTPs, signature management and force structure implications
  • Special Emphasis Topics: Multi-Domain Systems of Systems, Information Advantage
    Intelligence Production in support of CEMA operations, Distributed Operations, Indo-Pacific unique requirements, Navigation Warfare, Machine Learning and Automation, and Electromagnetic Battle Management in support of Joint All Domain Command and Control

Submission deadline: Jan. 19

Assuring Cognitive EW Systems
Jan. 11 | 2 PM

This presentation describes some of the challenges associated with testing the performance of Cognitive Electronic Warfare (CogEW) systems. CogEW incorporates Artificial Intelligence (AI) enables EW systems to respond more quickly and effectively to real-world conditions with complex and novel emitters; these systems learn post-deployment from novel experiences in the field. Cognitive capabilities will force multiple paradigm shifts from legacy test and evaluation (T&E) approaches. Notably, the system may never be the same twice. These paradigm shifts highlight changes needed in T&E processes, infrastructure and requirements to support this capability. T&E processes must validate the learning process, rather than validating the learned model. Testing must become a continuous process, rather than a final exam. T&E infrastructure must adopt a mixed-resolution closed-loop T&E framework and a data fabric that supports rapid test analysis. Finally, requirements should be placed on cognitive systems for data collection, transparency and rules for how to interact with legacy systems.

The Importance of Strategic Partnerships and Alliances

In this episode of From the Crows’ Nest, host Ken Miller sits down with retired US Air Force Lieutenant General Lance Landrum during AOC 2023 to discuss Strategic Partnerships and Alliances. General Landrum was a keynote speaker on the last day of the annual symposium. He is the former 23rd Deputy Chair of The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Military Committee. In this capacity, helped forge consensus among Allies on military advice and recommendations for bolstering NATO’s deterrence and defense. Prior to this assignment General Landrum served as the United States European Command Director of Operations (J3) and the Joint Staff J8 Deputy Director for Requirements and Capability Development, where he stood up and ran the Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations Cross Functional Team. They discuss how the integration of cyber and space capabilities into traditional warfare domains alters the strategic landscape for the U.S. and its allies and what lessons can General Landrum share to advance EMS superiority through international partnerships.
