Alexandria, VA, May 17, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- As technology progresses and military advancements among developed nations grow, the availability of frequency bands on the EMS becomes limited. As competing nations cultivate and field electronic attacks, this reduces the ability of the DoD to access the spectrum in the most efficient and productive way. Unlike other domains, America is not as dominant in this space as it should be. As war continues to shift further into the EW/Cyber domain and competing nations are gaining an edge on this emerging threat, the DoD is looking towards EW as a critical aspect of all warfighter operations and deems it vital in the success of our nation.
On June 20 & 21 Defense Strategies Institute will host the 3rd Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations Summit, a whole-of-Government event revolving around the theme of "Delivering EW and Cyber Capabilities for Multi-Domain Operations." This summit will provide US military commands, government agencies, academia, and technology providers the opportunity to participate in an open discussion addressing the current and future needs that exist for government operations occurring within the electromagnetic spectrum.
When: June 20-21, 2017
Where: The Mary M Gates Learning Center in Alexandria, VA
