2019 Thesis and Theme

The electromagnetic environment is changing at an increasing pace and the scope and depth of electromagnetic manoeuvre warfare is consequently changing in parallel.  The importance of electronic warfare (EW) system adaptability, flexibility, and innovation has also increased.  Not only are innovative technologies greatly needed, but the Industry and EW Community itself needs to change organizationally to embrace innovative ideas, technologies, and tactics - and at a significantly faster pace.  Innovation is about more than refreshing technology, it is also about evolving culture.  Perhaps more important is that free-world allies – in countries, militaries, academia and industry – must embrace the concept of working together to recognize and  embrace changing technologies, risks, threat and opportunities.  

There has been considerable progress over many years exemplified by shared platform development, particularly in aircraft development, and by successful alliances like NATO and European alliances with countries like Sweden and Finland, and others around the globe such as ABCA and FPDA.  Now though, much more is needed.  Warfare capabilities including EW, SIGINT, Navigation and NAVWAR, Communication, C4ISR are all areas where working together in a unified way is critically important, and yet these are areas where so often information and actions are stove-piped.  EW Stockholm will examine technological and conceptual means of ensuring success for free-world nations everywhere across the spectrum of operational activity.
