Conference Theme: “Integrating Force Level EW Capabilities with Kinetic Fires to Achieve Distributed Lethality”
Conference Objective: The National Defense Strategy and the update to the Chief of Naval Operations Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority identify the need to deliver warfighting solutions to achieve distributed operations and enable an integrated Naval Force structure as an urgent priority. This year’s conference will focus on the Electronic Warfare gaps and enabling technologies required to develop distributed Force Level Electronic Warfare capabilities, integrated with kinetic fires, in order to provide enhanced platform survivability and lethality. EW and military leaders from across the Department of Defense will present EW warfighting gaps and requirements for integrated, multi-domain system of systems EW solutions and motivate the EW community to explore innovative concepts and agile solutions to address their needs. The forum will provide a Joint Services venue for EW professionals across DoD, Industry and Academia to gain insight on emerging technologies, digital engineering methodologies and capabilities that will enable distributed lethality.
