Past event: DoD Information Warfare Symposium

Our 4th Annual Information Warfare Symposium is designed as an educational, "Town Hall" style forum, where thought leaders and key policymakers across military services, government agencies, acquisition authorities, & industry will be brought together for actionable discussions and debate on how electronic warfare & cyber capabilities are increasingly being deployed to enhance the modern battlefield & aide joint efforts toward achieving a decisive information advantage. The Information Warfare Symposium will focus on how the DoD & each of the services are developing their information warfare capabilities to enable decision dominance for Combatant Commanders as well as freedom of maneuver, increased lethality for the Warfighter at the tactical edge.

Current Health and Safety Protocols

Topics of Discussion Include:

  • Developing superior EW capabilities across the DoD to transform modern battlefield operations
  • Ensuring information dominance in a changing global competitive environment
  • Driving ARCYBER initiatives toward implementing new formations & skills to compete against adversaries in the information environment
  • Accelerating the Air Force's information warfare capabilities across the spectrum from competition to crisis to high-end conflict
  • Transforming the future Fleet's information combat power: Developing strategies to prevail in the information war
  • Creating a synergy in the information environment through the combining of Space & Cyber capabilities for a competitive MAGTF Advantage
  • Fielding integrated intelligence, cyber, & electronic warfare capabilities that provide spectrum superiority to enable freedom of maneuver on the battlefield
  • Implementing the DoD's Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations Superiority strategy as a critical component to mission success

Why You Should Attend This Symposium:

The FY '22 DoD budget details how the future character of warfare will be defined more by information than by hardware. DoD spending on overall IT capabilities increased by 7.8 percent over FY '21. The integration of commercial information technology (IT) products with legacy electronic warfare (EW) technologies will continue to accelerate. EW spending through 2025 is expected to remain stable, and the US Department of Defense (DoD) electronic warfare market is estimated to reach $3.6 billion by 2025. Joint service EW planning is gaining priority as multi-domain concepts of operations, joint battle management, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) jamming technology, electromagnetic spectrum deception, and mitigation and anti-jam satellite systems are deployed. Our 4th Annual Information Warfare Symposium will offer attendees actionable discussions and debate on how such technologies are currently being deployed to enhance the modern battlefield & aide joint efforts toward achieving a decisive information advantage. The Information Warfare Symposium will focus on how the DoD & each of the services are developing their information warfare capabilities to enable decision dominance for Combatant Commanders as well as freedom of maneuver, increased lethality for the Warfighter at the tactical edge.

Senior Leaders at this event will detail how they are utilizing EW & Cyber effects to defend U.S. weapons systems & an exponentially expanding trove of military data. They will also explain how information superiority & spectrum dominance will need to be achieved in order to be successful in the digital battlespace. Attendees at this forum will have the chance to hear about how the services are continuing to work toward building a synergetic approach by having information operations specialists work alongside cyber operators, to give the Warfighter the expertise needed to compete in the future fight. Acquisition priorities such as the fielding of electronic protection (EP) technologies to better protect systems from jamming and signal spoofing attempts by the adversary will also be discussed at this forum. Finally, there will be a panel of Senior level experts that will examine current initiatives toward implementing the DoD's Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations Superiority strategy as a critical component for mission success.

Our team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Symposiums' content and focus areas. We assemble the most respected minds in the EW & Cyber communities, as well as the key policymakers across military and civilian offices. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
