RF Theory for ES OperationsWhen: December 6 - 7, 2020 | Sunday & Monday | 09:00-17:00 EST
Where: Walter E. Washington Convention Center - Room TBD
801 Mt Vernon Pl NW
Washington, DC, 20001
This course is held on-site for two days prior to 57th Annual AOC International Symposium & Convention, held December 6-7, 2020 in Washington, DC. Registration for that event does not constitute registration for this course, nor are there any connected costs or discounts.
After a thorough overview of key electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) concepts, with an emphasis on the RF spectrum and commensurate propagation mechanisms and environmental impacts, this course will leverage several air, sea and land-based scenarios to address ES advantages and disadvantages associated with various RF wavelengths. The course will also provide a survey of propagation modeling techniques and an update on modern RF operating trends.
Who Should Attend
This course is best suited for those that are already working in the EW arena and/or have completed a basic course in EW fundamentals.

Dr. Pat Ford has spent over four decades supporting EW, including systems engineering, research, development, ground/in-flight testing, training, and extensive tactical EW experience on surface, subsurface, and airborne platforms. He has presented EW and aerospace training courses around the globe, including both professional seminars and graduate level courses. He serves as an EW science adviser for the U.S. Navy, and is also a certificated Advanced Ground Instructor, private pilot, and commercial UAS remote pilot. Pat received his Ph.D. in Applied Management and Decision Sciences from Walden University, with a Specialization in Naval Warfare Operations Analysis, where his research culminated in the first ever use of a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) radar on a Group 3 or smaller UAS. He received his Master of Science degree in Space Studies from the University of North Dakota, with a focus on human factors related to long-duration spaceflight missions. A retired U.S. Naval Reserve cryptologic officer, he is one of the few individuals to graduate from both the National Intelligence University Post Graduate Intelligence Program and the Middle Enlisted Cryptologic Career Advancement Program.
