This year’s theme, “Electronic Warfare – Shaping America’s Defense,” illustrates our commitment to providing “State of the Art” EW. Electronic Warfare is defense that works.

We must continue to shape the leading edge of Electronic Warfare if we are to protect the nation. Papers to support this theme should include issues relating to how well Electronic Warfare works, how it is needed for attack, how it helps to defend our forces and our homeland, and ways it must be improved to keep our tactics and products viable for the future.
