Testimonials from past EW Europe Attendees:

The conference will discuss the future of EW and other electromagnetic operations (EMO) and capabilities such as ISTAR and SIGINT. Future operations will be conducted in congested and contested complex environments across the spectrum of conflict in hot spots around the world, in cyberspace and counter-piracy and against terrorism everywhere. The changes necessary to move from counter insurgency (COIN) to contingency operations will be a challenge especially for EW and EMO. Successive defence spending cuts have also created new challenges for electronic warfare and other EM capabilities. Yet the need for accurate and timely ISTAR has never been greater and the requirement to counter potential adversary’s systems through EW is growing.

Plenary sessions will be organized to provide an opportunity for the community to discuss the challenges facing electronic warfare and the EMO community with a view to finding cost- effective solutions for current and future contingencies. Open discussion is encouraged and programme timing is planned accordingly. There will be ample opportunity to network with like-minded professionals. Leading industries of all sizes will exhibit the latest technology, capability and solutions.
