2021 AOC Sponsorship Catalog

The AOC bridges the gap between Electromagnetic Warfare practitioners, industry partners, policymakers, and procurement decision-makers.

For over 55 years, Electronic Warfare (EW), Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO), Cyber-Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA), and Information Operations (IO) professionals from military, government, industry, and academia have looked to the Association of Old Crows (AOC) to provide access to emerging technologies and the latest developments to protect the warfighter. Our Industry Partners are critical in turning ground-breaking research and concepts into products, technologies, components, and systems that allow for strategic, operational, and tactical dominance across all warfighting domains.
