This regularly scheduled podcast will feature interviews, analysis, and discussions covering leading issues of the day related to electromagnetic spectrum operations (EMSO). Topics include current events and news worldwide, US Congress and the annual defense budget, and military news from the US and allied countries. We will also bring you closer to AOC events and provide a forum to dive deeper into policy issues impacting our community.
In this episode, podcast host Ken Miller sits with Dr. William Conley, Chief Technology Officer at Mercury Systems. Microelectronics hold significant importance to EMSO as it represents the technology backbone of spectrum operations. Ken and Dr. Conley discuss the dynamic ecosystem of the world we live in and the recent changes in the microelectronics supply chain
Optimized for Possibilities: How AI/ML are Changing How We Think About Everything.
In this episode, host Ken Miller sits down with Mr. David Weinberger, author of Everyday Chaos: Technology, Complexity, and How We’re Thriving in a New World of Possibility. Ken and David discuss how the Internet and technology is changing the way we do business and live our everyday lives. Specifically, they address how Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are leading us to rethink our assumptions and learn to “unanticipate” as we predict, model, and prepare for the future to better understand the world in which we live. This topic holds extraordinary implications and possibilities for the electromagnetic spectrum operations (EMSO) community as we develop new products through open standards, implement new business strategies across our industry, and pursue interoperability for a scale of system optimization we have yet to fully grasp.
Electronic Warfare Challenges and Opportunities
In this episode, podcast host Ken Miller sits with Mr. David Tremper, the Director of Electronic Warfare and the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment. Ken and David discuss the acquisition of new EW capabilities across the military services in the FY 2022 Defense Budget, the growing emphasis on EMS Survivability, and the rise of collaborative systems using artificial intelligence and machine learning, and how these new systems are shaping our ability to achieve EMS superiority.
A Conversation with John Knowles on Defense Budget and JADC2
In this episode, Host Ken Miller recaps and shares excerpts from a conversation he had earlier with Mr. John Knowles, editor of the Journal of Electromagnetic Dominance (JED). They cover a range of issues from the defense budget to JADC2, and some upcoming additions of the JED that are coming out in September. Ken also shares exciting news about upcoming From the Crows’ Nest episodes, including a sit down with Mr. David Weinberger, author of the book Everyday Chaos: Technology, Complexity, and How We’re Thriving in a New World of Possibility.
DEF: Moving Beyond Lightning Bolts On Powerpoint
In this special episode, we present to you coverage from the Defense Entrepreneurs Forum: Drink & Think on Moving Beyond Lighting Bolts On PowerPoint, an event hosted at AOC headquarters. We hear from Ken Miller, Director of Advocacy & Outreach at the Association of Old Crows, Scott Oliver, Director of the Board of Advisors at the RVJ Institute, Pat Flood, Senior National Security Policy Advisor at the U.S. House of Representatives.
Unlocking Open Systems Architecture
Open systems architecture is changing the defense electronics market and business dynamics of the Department of Defense (DOD). Advancing software and hardware standards across DOD and military services is leading us to rethink the bridge that connects research & engineering (R&E) to acquisition. But challenges exist, including intellectual property rights, conformance, and architectural constraints early in development. In this episode, Host Ken Miller is joined by Mr. Rodger Hosking from Mercury Systems and leader in the Sensor Open System Architecture (SOSA) Consortium; and Mr. Patrick Collier from the Aspen Consulting Group. We discuss these issues and challenges as DOD is set to release new standards later this summer.
If you are involved or concerned about this domain - this is a great podcast! Might I point you to the Low-Cost Threat Emitter project.
Very exciting for professionals wanting to hear more conversations about Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations and Defense technologies. Looking forward to the next episode!
