9th Annual Cyber & EW Convergence Conference

9th Annual Cyber & EW Convergence Conference

June 5-7, 2018 | Charleston, South Carolina



Conference Approval Letter - click here to download



Cyberspace and Electronic Warfare technical capabilities are becoming more technically similar. However, the communities which practice these disciplines remain largely separated and vary widely across the military Services in terms of their equipment, unit organization and operating methodologies. This conference provides the EW and Cyberspace communities an opportunity to collaborate and discuss capabilities, TTPs and research in EW and Cyberspace operations to enable more rapid deployment of new and improved capabilities. The Cyber/EW Convergence Conference identifies ways to develop advanced technologies and systems to address the changing battlefield dynamics of the digital age and bring EW and Cyberspace together for the Warfighter!
