EW - IO - Cyber - EMS Operations

Convergence and Synergies

Hotel Grand Chancellor Adelaide, South Australia, 18-19 August 2014

Introduction

The Australian Chapter of the AOC will host its 2014 biennial AOC Australasia Convention in Adelaide at the Hotel Grand Chancellor Adelaide on 18-19 August.

The Australian Chapter Convention is the only combined Electronic Warfare, Information Operations, electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) and Cyber Operations convention in Australia.

Themes and Subjects

Join us as we look at the changing face of warfare in the 21st century including:

  • The evolving EM threat environment and corresponding EW technology advances
  • Increased Coalition operations and dependence upon third country partnerships
  • The move from federated EW systems to integrated, network centric solutions
  • Strategies for increased efficiencies and effectiveness in EW solutions
  • Changing relationships and new players (Cyber / IO / Comms / ISR / EA)
  • Emerging Cyber NCW and software defined radio security and protection issues
  • Procurement strategies to meet technology refresh rates
  • New manned and unmanned maritime patrol capability

Call for Technical Papers

Each convention includes a significant (2 to 3 technical streams) technical program looking at new and innovative products as well as research and development in related fields.

Of particular interest, this convention we will look at the convergence of EW, IO and Cyber especially as it applies to the concept of the Electro-Magnetic Spectrum (EMS) as a war fighting domain. The term Electronic Warfare is used to cover an increasingly wider range of techniques to protect our forces, electronic systems and operations within the EMS, while denying the adversary the use of the spectrum. Cross domain operations between the EW, IO and cyber communities including technology developments and capabilities together with an understanding of strategic policy is essential if Australia is going to meet the current and emerging challenges of warfare in the EMS.

Technical papers are now invited for the Convention and papers which address aspects of the theme of "eWarfare - a Changing Paradigm, the Changing Face of Warfare in the 21st Century" are especially welcome. Examples of possible topics (not exhaustive) include:

  • EW/IO in a Networked Environment    
  • Current practices in EW/IO/Cyber
  • EW and Cyber Convergence
  • Tactical Cyber/CNO (Computer Network Operations)/Crypto Capabilities and Technologies
  • Evolving ISTAR/EW Capabilities
  • Integrated Mission Planning
  • ADF evolution of Electronic Attack (EA)
  • Emerging Technologies for EW
  • EW and IO System Architectures for the Future Threat Environment    
  • EW in an Asymmetric Environment

Emerging EM Threats  - Air EW – Naval EW – Land EW – Spectrum Warfare – Cyber Challenges – Procurement Plans – Future Tech

Introduction

The Australian Chapter of the AOC will host its 2014 biennial AOC Australasia Convention in Adelaide at the Hotel Grand Chancellor Adelaide on 18-19 August.

The Australian Chapter Convention is the only combined Electronic Warfare, Information Operations, electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) and Cyber Operations convention in Australia.

Background

The Australian Chapter of the Association of Old Crows is on track to provide an innovative and stimulating international convention. Serving the high end of the Electronic Warfare (EW), Intelligence Operations (IO) and Cyber Defence, Security and Resilience communities, this event brings together talent, experience and technologies from every corner of the globe.

International senior leaders, military operators and decision-makers responsible for Cyber, EW Information and EMS Operations, definition, specification and procurement are set to come together in Adelaide to discuss the latest developments in EW and related EMS capabilities.

As growth in these capabilities continues to accelerate across several key regions, leading nations acknowledge that EW remains critical to operational effectiveness. This highly focused convention aims to meet the market need to learn about developments in EW and related EM capabilities, such as Intelligence Surveillance Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR), Communications and Signals Intelligence (COMINT/SIGINT), from international specialists.

This convention will allow international industry to explore business and related opportunities in this still expanding market. This market growth is being accompanied by a corresponding growth in requirements for these converging and related capabilities and programs as the leading regional nations recognise and understand the importance of EW, IO and Cyber and the critical roles they play in operational effectiveness and survivability in peace and conflict.

Scope

Day One is the Policy day where a range of invited Australian and overseas speakers discuss Australian and International policy and trends in EW,  IO, EMS and Cyber.

Day Two is devoted to EW, IO and Cyber related technical papers discussing research, future technologies and system developments.

The convention also includes a trade exhibition featuring companies and organisations showcasing the latest EW, IO and Cyber related research, products and services.

Discussions with Defence and Industry have also commenced to determine the feasibility of a hosted Day 3 program featuring invited speakers and discussion groups of benefit to the broader Defence community. More details will be provided as Day 3 planning progresses.
