The Australian Chapter of the AOC will host its 2012 biennial EW, IO and Cyber Convention in Adelaide at the Hilton Adelaide Hotel on 16-17 April.
The Australian AOC Convention is the only combined Electronic Warfare, Information Operations and Cyber Operations convention in Australia and is held every 2 years.
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 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.
Join us as we look at the changing face of warfare in the 21st century including:
- the changing threat environment (irregular/asymmetric warfare)
- changing operations – whole-of-government and commercial response versus ADF only operations
- changing relationships – many new players (cyber / IO / Comms / ISR et al)
- emerging cyber NCW and software defined radio security and protection issues
- changing/evolving/new technologies and engineering design strategies to suit evolving operational environments
- the evolving harmful use of social networks and on-line virtual worlds
- changing procurement strategies to meet technology refresh rates
The core Technical Paper topics include:
- EW/IO in a Networked Environment
- EW as part of an ISTAR/EW Construct
- EW and IO System Architectures for the Future Threat Environment
- Current Practices in EW/IO
- Integrated Mission Planning
