Electromagnetic Warfare Capability Gaps and Enabling Technologies 2023 Conference

May 16–18, 2023 | Crane, IN



Force Level Electromagnetic Warfare


The overall goal of this signature conference for Electromagnetic Warfare (EW) professionals from the military, government, industry, and academic fields is to discuss issues related to achieving Force Level EW and Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO) capabilities across the Services. Technical panels and keynote speakers will address EW and EMSO requirements and emerging technologies necessary to support joint warfighting and achieve an enduring advantage in the electromagnetic spectrum. Government and military leaders across the Department of Defense will present the essential role of EW and EMSO in Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2), Joint Long-Range Fires, and Information Advantage, and exchange with the EW community how innovative technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are needed to advance collaborative and agile solutions to persistent gaps in our joint warfighting capabilities.
