EW in the New Threat Environment
Feb. 8 | 2 PM

Our adversaries have developed an impressive array of upgrades to the threats we face; they are designed specifically to overcome the ways our Electronic Warfare systems have been so successful for so many years. This webinar covers the nature of those upgrades and generally what we are required to do to overcome them. The new threat generation(s) have longer range – making stand-off jamming more difficult. They also have significant electronic protection features – to counter some of our best techniques against legacy systems. Most have “home on jam” capability making self-protection jamming dangerous.

In this webinar, we will talk about the upgrade genealogy of missiles, tracking radars, acquisition radars, anti-aircraft guns and infrared guided weapons. We will also overview the new techniques for facing these new threats.

Dixie Crow Special Topic Meeting
Feb. 16

The Dixie Crow Chapter, Peraton and MERC are happy to provide this venue (in person or via Teams) for interested parties to gather to attend this complimentary AOC Dixie Crow Chapter Special Topic Event.

Our 2023 Training covered Collaborative and Cooperative EW and briefly alluded to the driving force for EW cooperation: the Integrated Air Defense System (IADS). This year we will look at this problem space from the IADS perspective. What does the IADS do? How does it increase the effectiveness of our adversaries? What are some approaches from an EW perspective to reduce this effectiveness? Spoiler alert! This leads us right back to cooperation in the EW domain with our wingman, other services and coalition partners.
