Conference Theme


Core Theme: Multi-Domain Operations for Electromagnetic Spectrum Dominance

The 2021 event will bring together world-leading experts from the military, government, academia and industry. Delegates will progress their understanding of the issues, technology and capabilities that underpin their national electronic warfare abilities and allow them to enhance their capabilities both nationally and in collaborative defence.

Background information

The Multi Domain Battlefield (MDB) encompasses elctromagnetic and information-related fields (including cyber operations), as well as the core Land, Maritime, Air and Space domains. The MDB underpins and enables every decision, communication and navigation system as well as defensive and offensive actions.

Spectrum management capabilities are vital to all activities - especially manoeuvre warfare. We know that without spectrum dominance, the war is lost before it has begun. New and current threat systems and strategies for defeating them will be considered, alongside technological developments most likely to influence complex electromagnetic warfare in the future.

Session topics

In support of the conference theme, sessions in the 2021 programme will include:

  • Operational updates and activities
  • Global EW Threat Developments
  • National perspectives on EW
  • Cyber and Information Security
  • Advances in Platform Protection
  • Technological innovations and developments
