Strategy Plan

The Association of Old crows is surviving well in this period of de-emphasized defense and reduced spending.  Our membership has stabilized and the AOC recognizes the changes occurring in defense.   The AOC has focused on important member services, expanded into new arenas and has been fiscally prudent.  Imperative now is the establishment of and organization strategy that, when executed, will expand the membership, renew growth, poise the association for advancement into the new millennium and broaden our technical scope.

The key premise of the following plan is and understanding that to continue as a strong and growing association, we must attract new pools of talent that have been closely associated with defense electronics activity but not previously a robust part of AOC.  The addition of members from these disciplines will fill out the associations scope making it the undisputed leader in the emerging area of Information Operations and Warfare.

In accordance with the Vision and Scope statements, the AOC supports defensive and offensive Information Operations for the maintenance of peaceful world-order, potential conflict, combat of any intensity, counter-terrorism, and law enforcement operations.  Of particular significance are the threats developing from potential attacks against the nation's computer controlled infrastructure.  What's new is the speed and coverage with which a nations networks for transportation, banking, communications, power generating, and control of military operations can be attacked.  This vulnerability is generating major commercial security developments that reflect the AOC interests and opens the opportunity for a new class of membership outside the historical military channels.  The AOC strategy is aimed at expanding our roles and missions in the following special interest areas.

  • Information Operations /Warfare
  • Command and Control Warfare
  • Defense Suppression
  • EO/IR Warning, Countermeasures, CCM
  • RF Warning, Countermeasures and CCM
