However, sophisticated near-peer adversaries have far better training and technology to exploit gaps in friendly capabilities. As signals intelligence transitions back from COIN to direct action scenarios, factors such as emissions control (EMCON) and denial and deception (D&amp;D) are more important than ever.</p> <p>In this webinar, we will discuss some of the D&amp;D developments and methodologies that affect modern SIGINT operations, including:</p> <p>- Spoofing<br />- Decoys<br />- Wideband, complex or novel signals<br />- Low-profile radars<br />- UAVs<br />- Optics &amp; passive collection<br />- Artificial intelligence and machine learning</p> <p>More importantly, we will discuss ways to counter these threats to help maintain a tactical edge over potential adversaries.</p></p> 7/6/2020 3:06:45 PM https://www.crows.org/page/Denial-Deception View your 2020 Candidates for the AOC HQ Board of Directors! https://www.crows.org/general/custom.asp?page=elections <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=https://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=68345>July 8, 2020</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p>Help shape the future of the AOC by choosing the next AOC Headquarters Board of Directors.

This year&rsquo;s theme builds on the work of the 6th Annual Symposium in 2017, which focused on the Army&rsquo;s Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) Concept. The Army&rsquo;s now well-established MDO Concept focuses on optimizing the land force contribution to a Joint fight in multiple domains, and provides a strong foundation for the development of a Joint All-Domain Operations Concept, both of which are intended to be employed across the spectrum of operations from competition to conflict. The 2020 theme also benefits from the presentations and work accomplished at the 7th Annual Symposium in 2018, focused on the roles of IO and EW in overcoming A2/AD challenges, which are a driver for the development of an All-Domain Operations (ADO) concept.</p> <p><a href="https://www.fbcinc.com/e/aocpacific/files/Call_for_Papers_and_Presentations_9th_Annual_Pacific_IO_EW_Symposium_19_APR.pdf"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>CALL FOR PAPERS</strong></span></a></p> <p>INDOPACOM J39 and the AOC are soliciting original unclassified English language presentations and/or papers for the 9th Pacific IO &amp; EW Symposium from subject matter experts in the U.S. and Allied militaries / government, as well as from academia and industry on the conference theme.</p> <p>Presentations must be UNCLASSIFIED for the unclassified sessions.

This year&rsquo;s theme builds on the work of the 6th Annual Symposium in 2017, which focused on the Army&rsquo;s Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) Concept. The Army&rsquo;s now well-established MDO Concept focuses on optimizing the land force contribution to a Joint fight in multiple domains, and provides a strong foundation for the development of a Joint All-Domain Operations Concept, both of which are intended to be employed across the spectrum of operations from competition to conflict. The 2020 theme also benefits from the presentations and work accomplished at the 7th Annual Symposium in 2018, focused on the roles of IO and EW in overcoming A2/AD challenges, which are a driver for the development of an All-Domain Operations (ADO) concept.</p> <p><a href="https://www.fbcinc.com/e/aocpacific/files/Call_for_Papers_and_Presentations_9th_Annual_Pacific_IO_EW_Symposium_19_APR.pdf"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>CALL FOR PAPERS</strong></span></a></p> <p>INDOPACOM J39 and the AOC are soliciting original unclassified English language presentations and/or papers for the 9th Pacific IO &amp; EW Symposium from subject matter experts in the U.S. and Allied militaries / government, as well as from academia and industry on the conference theme.</p> <p>Presentations must be UNCLASSIFIED for the unclassified sessions.

This year&rsquo;s theme builds on the work of the 6th Annual Symposium in 2017, which focused on the Army&rsquo;s Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) Concept. The Army&rsquo;s now well-established MDO Concept focuses on optimizing the land force contribution to a Joint fight in multiple domains, and provides a strong foundation for the development of a Joint All-Domain Operations Concept, both of which are intended to be employed across the spectrum of operations from competition to conflict. The 2020 theme also benefits from the presentations and work accomplished at the 7th Annual Symposium in 2018, focused on the roles of IO and EW in overcoming A2/AD challenges, which are a driver for the development of an All-Domain Operations (ADO) concept.</p> <p><a href="https://www.fbcinc.com/e/aocpacific/files/Call_for_Papers_and_Presentations_9th_Annual_Pacific_IO_EW_Symposium_19_APR.pdf"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>CALL FOR PAPERS</strong></span></a></p> <p>INDOPACOM J39 and the AOC are soliciting original unclassified English language presentations and/or papers for the 9th Pacific IO &amp; EW Symposium from subject matter experts in the U.S. and Allied militaries / government, as well as from academia and industry on the conference theme.</p> <p>Presentations must be UNCLASSIFIED for the unclassified sessions.

This year&rsquo;s theme builds on the work of the 6th Annual Symposium in 2017, which focused on the Army&rsquo;s Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) Concept. The Army&rsquo;s now well-established MDO Concept focuses on optimizing the land force contribution to a Joint fight in multiple domains, and provides a strong foundation for the development of a Joint All-Domain Operations Concept, both of which are intended to be employed across the spectrum of operations from competition to conflict. The 2020 theme also benefits from the presentations and work accomplished at the 7th Annual Symposium in 2018, focused on the roles of IO and EW in overcoming A2/AD challenges, which are a driver for the development of an All-Domain Operations (ADO) concept.</p> <p><a href="https://www.fbcinc.com/e/aocpacific/files/Call_for_Papers_and_Presentations_9th_Annual_Pacific_IO_EW_Symposium_19_APR.pdf"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>CALL FOR PAPERS</strong></span></a></p> <p>INDOPACOM J39 and the AOC are soliciting original unclassified English language presentations and/or papers for the 9th Pacific IO &amp; EW Symposium from subject matter experts in the U.S. and Allied militaries / government, as well as from academia and industry on the conference theme.</p> <p>Presentations must be UNCLASSIFIED for the unclassified sessions.

This year&rsquo;s theme builds on the work of the 6th Annual Symposium in 2017, which focused on the Army&rsquo;s Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) Concept. The Army&rsquo;s now well-established MDO Concept focuses on optimizing the land force contribution to a Joint fight in multiple domains, and provides a strong foundation for the development of a Joint All-Domain Operations Concept, both of which are intended to be employed across the spectrum of operations from competition to conflict. The 2020 theme also benefits from the presentations and work accomplished at the 7th Annual Symposium in 2018, focused on the roles of IO and EW in overcoming A2/AD challenges, which are a driver for the development of an All-Domain Operations (ADO) concept.</p> <p><a href="https://www.fbcinc.com/e/aocpacific/files/Call_for_Papers_and_Presentations_9th_Annual_Pacific_IO_EW_Symposium_19_APR.pdf"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>CALL FOR PAPERS</strong></span></a></p> <p>INDOPACOM J39 and the AOC are soliciting original unclassified English language presentations and/or papers for the 9th Pacific IO &amp; EW Symposium from subject matter experts in the U.S. and Allied militaries / government, as well as from academia and industry on the conference theme.</p> <p>Presentations must be UNCLASSIFIED for the unclassified sessions.

This year&rsquo;s theme builds on the work of the 6th Annual Symposium in 2017, which focused on the Army&rsquo;s Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) Concept. The Army&rsquo;s now well-established MDO Concept focuses on optimizing the land force contribution to a Joint fight in multiple domains, and provides a strong foundation for the development of a Joint All-Domain Operations Concept, both of which are intended to be employed across the spectrum of operations from competition to conflict. The 2020 theme also benefits from the presentations and work accomplished at the 7th Annual Symposium in 2018, focused on the roles of IO and EW in overcoming A2/AD challenges, which are a driver for the development of an All-Domain Operations (ADO) concept.</p> <p><a href="https://www.fbcinc.com/e/aocpacific/files/Call_for_Papers_and_Presentations_9th_Annual_Pacific_IO_EW_Symposium_19_APR.pdf"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>CALL FOR PAPERS</strong></span></a></p> <p>INDOPACOM J39 and the AOC are soliciting original unclassified English language presentations and/or papers for the 9th Pacific IO &amp; EW Symposium from subject matter experts in the U.S. and Allied militaries / government, as well as from academia and industry on the conference theme.</p> <p>Presentations must be UNCLASSIFIED for the unclassified sessions.

Leveraging Publicly Available Information to Map and Track GNSS Interference https://www.crows.org/page/GNSSInterference <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=https://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=68337>May 13, 2020</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p><em><strong>May 21,&nbsp;14:00 - 15:00 EDT (18:00 - 19:00 UTC)</strong></em></p> <p>In this webinar, we examine an emerging subset of EW activity: the ability to mimic, or &ldquo;spoof,&rdquo; legitimate Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signals in order to manipulate Positioning, Navigation, and Timing data. To date, methods for detecting GNSS spoofing and other interference have been reserved for organizations with the ability to leverage advanced means for signals collection. As a result, the full scope of this activity has rarely been discussed in the public domain. However, with the democratization of technological capabilities and access to data, these advanced means are now available to a wider audience.</p></p> 5/11/2020 2:27:33 PM https://www.crows.org/page/GNSSInterference
