2013 Land EW Conference
- Dec 10 - Dec 11
Due to protracted acquisitions and traditional doctrinal warfare solutions there is a lack of exposure or appreciation for the cutting-edge innovation and technological development resulting in missed opportunities to provide warfighters the most up-to-date spectrum and information related capabilities.
The 2013 Land EW Conference; Innovation and Demonstration will be held 10-11 December in Quantico, VA to provide a forum for government and commercial attendees to both appreciate the latest innovations and/or witness how these tactics may be implemented.
Day one will consists of sessions covering the most cutting-edge technologies or organizational models whether in theory or some stage of practical development. Day two will focus on demonstrations of technologies or organizational practices that are beyond the theoretical. In either case the intent is for attendees to appreciate the art of the possible and the practical. Discussions on the latest innovations and demonstrations sessions and demonstrations provide evidence of how the U.S. Military, Government, Academia and Industry partners are developing and implementing technology and changing organizational paradigms in order to exploit the EMS and the information environment.
Since information technology will manipulate a commander’s perception of the battlefield, capabilities associated with the exploitation of the electromagnetic spectrum and the information environment are altering how commanders view the concept of combined arms in the 21st Century. From an EMS perspective, the challenge is twofold; identifying the right technologies, and then institutionalizing their use. In order to ensure spectrum activities are integrated into traditional or emerging operational schemes of maneuver, implementation of these technologies requires that members fully embrace the extent to which these capabilities can alter the conduct of warfare. However, the state of technological innovation coupled with archaic organizational paradigms is such that members often miss opportunities to transform 21st Century warfare.
(1) Provide a forum to highlight the most recent technologies that will provide service commanders with an enhanced EW capability.
(2) Provide a forum to allow Government Labs, Academia and our Industry Partners to demonstrate their most recent technology and developing technology.
(3) Provide a forum for the Operating Forces to collaborate with Government Labs, Academia and Industry the capabilities needed to combat emerging threats in the EMS.
(4) Provide a forum to discuss the integration of technology to provide the Service or Joint Commander greater situational awareness within the EMS during combat operations.
