2020 Theme and Guidance

Advancing Electromagnetic Operations in the Asia Pacific Region

The use of, and the ability to control the electromagnetic environment are changing at an increasing pace and operations in this congested and contested battlespace must adapt to these dynamic transformations. Military, academia and the EW industrial partners will need to collaborate in adopting innovative technologies and novel EW capabilities in EW, SIGINT, navigation, communication and C4ISR applications to meet these challenges.

The Asia Pacific region poses both unique difficulties and opportunities in advancing EM Operations. AOC EW Asia 2020 will address evolving EW and EM technologies and operational concepts for current and emerging threats in maritime, air and land operations including hybrid warfare, cyber warfare, information warfare, and signals intelligence.

Participants at the 4th AOC Asia event in Singapore will find world-leading experts from military, government, academia and industry to help them progress their understanding of the issues, technologies and capabilities that underpin the improvement in their national EM operational ability.

  • Keynote addresses
