47th Annual Collaborative EW Symposium

47th Annual Collaborative EW Symposium

March 13-15, 2018 | Pt. Mugu, California



Thank you to those that were in attendance at the 47th Annual Collaborative EW Symposium and to all of our sponsors who made this symposium possible. Details of the event are below. Check the calendar of events for upcoming conferences in your area.


As EW warfighting requirements continue to evolve in their complexity and interdependency, it is clear that future EW systems must work collaboratively with other Air, Ground, Surface Space and Cyberspace systems. The 47th Annual Point Mugu Electronic Warfare Symposium will facilitate the exchange of enabling concepts and provide a venue to disseminate current research in the fields of Collaborative Electronic Warfare. Prominent leaders, contributors and representatives from the United States military, government, academia, and industry will come together to address current Electronic Warfare gaps and emerging technologies in Collaborative Electronic Warfare required to address these gaps.
