The Military Communications (MILCOM) Conference, co-hosted by AFCEA International and the IEEE Communications Society, is the premier international conference on military communications. MILCOM has become the largest forum featuring leaders from government, military, academia and industry around the world to discuss innovative research and cutting-edge technologies for military applications. The restricted-access technical program provides a venue for research related to U.S. Government programs that is not suited for full public or international release. Attendees of the restricted-access session must have an active U.S. security clearance that can be verified via the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS).

Suggested topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Antenna and RF Technology
  • Propagation and Channel Modeling
  • Underwater Communications
  • Tactical, Satellite, Optical, and Airborne Communications Networks
  • System Architecture
  • Anti-Jam Communications
  • LPI/LPD/LPE Communications
  • Survivable Communications and Networks
  • Cyber Operations and Defense
  • Radar System, Detection, and Localization
  • Homeland Security
  • Spectrum Management
  • Autonomous Vehicle Communications
  • System Modeling and Simulations
  • Test Beds, Experiments, Exercises and Demonstration

Prospective authors should submit original papers to the restricted access technical program by the June 1 deadline.

Papers submitted to the restricted-access program must be approved to have Distribution Statement C (release to U.S. Government and contractors) or Distribution Statement A (full public release). Authors will be asked to verify that they have obtained this approval.
