EW Asia 2019 Conference

The Asia Pacific region is one of the most strategically vital areas of the world and the electromagnetic environment is changing at an increasing pace with the scope and depth of electromagnetic manoeuvre warfare consequently changing in parallel.  The importance of electronic warfare (EW) system adaptability, flexibility, and innovation has also increased.  Not only are innovative technologies greatly needed, but the industry and EW community itself needs to change organisationally to embrace innovative ideas, technologies, and tactics - and at a significantly faster pace.

Innovation is about more than refreshing technology, it is also about evolving culture. Allies – in countries, militaries, academia and industry – must embrace the concept of working together to recognise and tackle changing technologies and threats. There has been considerable progress in recent years with numerous and encouraging multilateral agreements emerging in the region. Now though, much more is needed.

The 3rd edition of AOC EW Asia will examine technological and conceptual means of ensuring success for regional nations and allies across the spectrum of operational activity. The future of EW and EM Operations in the changing light of current and emerging threats will be explored, including Hybrid Warfare, Information Operations, Cyber and Anti Access/Area Denial (A2/AD), where some potential opponents are excelling. The conference will bring together the EW, Cyber EM Activities (CEMA), SIGINT, C4ISR communities and more to consider the possible responses, how thinking and attitudes must change, and examine the new capabilities that will be required across all lines of development, by all services, across the Asia-Pacific region.
