Electromagnetic Warfare Capability Gaps and Enabling Technologies 2024 Conference

June 25-27, 2024 | Crane, IN



Accelerating EMSO Capabilities


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 shortening the timeline to field advanced Force Level EW and Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO) capabilities across the Services. Technical panels and keynote speakers will address EW and EMSO requirements, 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 the Joint Warfighting Concept 3.0 and the Navy's Distributed Maritime Operations concept. This conference will seek to address the criticality of Mission Integration, Mission Engineering, and ways in which the DoD can leverage these concepts to get these advanced capabilities to the joint forces and understand the impact these advanced EW and EMSO capabilities will have when employed.
