52nd Annual AOC International Symposium and Convention
December 1, 2015 - December 3, 2015
Marriott Marquis and DC Convention Center, Washington, DC
Synchronizing EW and Cyber to Achieve Spectrum Dominance
Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS) Dominance in the future will require that we “Synchronize EW and Cyber to Achieve Spectrum Dominance.” The U.S. Department of Defense along with its industry partners face an uncertain global security environment driven by adversaries who recognize that the EMS has become vital to the success of their campaigns. Adversaries are aggressively fielding electronic warfare systems and cyber systems/technologies that significantly erode DoD’s ability to use and control the EMS while conducting military operations. During this year’s Symposium we have 12 sessions set up to examine various aspects of the evolving EW and Cyber strategic relationship and how they impact the EMS.
The AOC International Symposium is designed for Spectrum Warfighters to obtain critical information to be able to make day-to-day decisions in their jobs – across Active-Duty Military, Government Civilians, Academia, and the vital EW Industrial Base both in the U.S., and abroad. It is no longer acceptable to do “business as usual.” This unique forum provides warfighters and industry partners the vital insights into EW strategies of today, and the technology developments of the future.
There were three days of focused briefings plus supporting professional development courses offered by outstanding instructors. The exhibit hall provided additional training opportunities with companies showcasing their reliable, affordable “state-of-the-art” products and diverse services. Discussions included the International AOC awareness and advocacy mission and how we will continue to advance the cause of EW/EMSO in the military and Congress. We also introduced a STEM program to help inspire the future innovators, inventors and leaders of this nation, to become Spectrum Warriors and Young Crows. In short, the 52nd Annual AOC International Symposium & Convention was a MUST ATTEND event.
