ELECTRONIC WARFARE 2018 AGENDA HIGHLIGHTS
The current threat in Eastern Europe presents NATO members with an urgent need to develop and upgrade their electronic warfare capabilities. With many high profile cyber-attacks affecting the West largely attributed to Russia there is an urgent, pressing need for NATO members to quickly develop their capabilities to tackle the ongoing threat.
Electronic Warfare 2018, chaired by Tim Watts, Former Signals Chief, British Army, will bring together senior military leaders with industry partners to discuss, shape and develop capabilities to meet urgent requirements at this must-attend meeting.
THE ROLE OF ELECTRONIC WARFARE IN A CONTESTED ENVIRONMENT
As NATO and friendly forces move on from the austere environments of the past few decades they must now prepare to enter a more information-centric warfighting environment. Sophisticated enemies, manging multi-national operations and obstructed use of the spectrum are the biggest challenges for Chief Information Officers, EW experts and C4ISTAR operators. Discuss, debate and shape the future of EW and how modern forces are preparing for future conflicts.
UTILISING UNMANNED TECHNOLOGY
The last decade has seen a rapid increase in the number of unmanned aerial vehicles being deployed in operations. UAV’s can be a valuable tool for militaries in terms of gathering intelligence and compromising enemy capabilities. However, with the commercialisation of such technology comes the increase in their use by enemy forces and so militaries must now consider electronic warfare as a method of prevention and protection.
Whether as a defensive measure or an offensive tool to gain a tactical advantage, airborne electronic warfare capabilities are a crucial component of any modern arsenal. Airborne ISR is crucial in maintaining constant situational awareness, improved precision weaponry and maintains communications, therefore spectrum control for air assets is crucial to mission success. Discover how airborne assets can help achieve mission success and keep aviators and ground forces safe.
MAN PORTABILITY OF ECM AND EP CAPABILITIES
With the need for forces to remain mobile and ready to move at any given time comes the need for their EW capabilities to remain protected and uncompromised. Man portability of ECM and EP capabilities ensures that ground forces can maintain access to the spectrum in an array of environments. Delegates will discuss ways in which versatile and mobile EW capabilities and protection can drastically increase the chance of mission success.
ELECTRONIC WARFARE TRAINING
The greater dependency on electronic warfare capabilities has forced NATO allies to work more closely to overcome a resistance in sharing electronic warfare policies and capabilities. Due to Enhanced Forward Presence, the annex of Crimea and recent electronic warfare attacks there has been a pressing need for greater interoperability. Delegates will discuss the merits of electronic warfare collaboration such as the SEWOC in ANAKONDA 2016.
DEPLOYABLE INFRASTRUCTURE FOR ELECTRONIC WARFARE
Being able to quickly establish a base and electronic warfare capabilities can be crucial to achieving dominance of the electromagnetic spectrum in a new theatre. Whether it be radar deflection, SIGINT systems or counter-intelligence these versatile and mission-ready capabilities can be crucial in gaining an early upper hand. Delegates will explore how deployable infrastructure can aid attempts to dominate the spectrum.
MOVING FORWARD: ELECTRONIC WARFARE IN FUTURE WARFARE
As nations realign their capabilities to address the growing importance electronic warfare is playing in modern warfare there is a pressing need to develop a unified approach. Working with partner nations and turning to industry for the latest technology is crucial to ensuring mission success. Delegates will discuss ways in which electronic warfare is training the landscape and how industry can help militaries keep pace in a constantly changing environment.
