Cyber/Electronic Warfare Convergence 2024 Conference

June 4-6, 2024 | Charleston, SC


Theme: Operational Synergy

Objective: The original intent of this conference was to provide a TS/SCI forum to explore the nature of the relationship between Electromagnetic Warfare/Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (EW/EMSO) and Cyberspace Operations (CO). A 2020 DTIC report (Accession Number AD1112357) summarizes: “[EMSO and CO] are on divergent…paths driven by historical mission applications. Although both operate in and through the [EMS], each organization views its use differently. EMSO focuses on exploiting, attacking, protecting, and managing the physical EMS, while CO is focused on the data driven human use of digital applications and [cyber-EMS] data. Each community has a specialty developed over many years, but entrenched thought has created a divide between the two.”

For 2024, the conference is set up to bypass definitions, doctrine & dogma, and proceed directly to combined operations. We’ll explore real-world examples that show operationalization of mission capabilities made possible as much by the convergence of information technology (IT) and data infrastructure as by magically harmonized Cyber-EW policy. Topics under development include: National-Tactical Interoperability, IC Warfighter Support, Mission Data Integration, Software-Driven Capabilities, PlatformOne, CJADC2, and more — delivered via presentations, expert panels, facilitated discussions and rich networking opportunities.
