EMC LIVE: Mil/Aero EMC is a one-day, free online learning event for engineers working in the military and aerospace fields.

A new offshoot of our popular EMC LIVE three-day event, this one-day version will hone in on the fast-changing and high-pressure world of military EMC. Expert speakers from the Mil-Aero sector will cover the latest in topics like the DO-160 and other military EMC standards, UAVs, selecting components for harsh environments, and more.

Join hundreds of other design and testing professionals to learn the latest innovations and techniques directly from industry thought leaders. Network with peers while you take in technical presentations, product demonstrations, and free resources, and interact with expert speakers in real time.

Can’t attend live? Don’t sweat it. After the event, all presentations will be made available on demand for you to view on your schedule. Again—there’s no cost for attendees.
