The IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (AESS)

The IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (AESS) provides a global professional home for engineers working in the electronic systems domain.

The Society offers a unique opportunity to become deeply connected with the three pillars of the Aerospace, Electronic and Defence sector: Industry, Institutions and Research Centres. Effective interaction between those pillars is the key element for the organisation, design, development and operation of successful Complex Systems, which are the core of the AESS Field of Interest.

AESS Complex Systems cover the space, air, ocean and ground environments, including hardware, software, integration and many other aspects of the Engineering job.

AESS Conferences, Workshops, Transactions, Magazine and Educational tools enhance and disseminate the culture of Complex Systems through the global AESS community, bringing to a large and beneficial exchange of experience and achievements among our members.


E&T is the Institution of Engineering and Technology’s (IET) award-winning magazine brand. It covers multi-disciplinary multi-sector aspects with exclusive news, features, and analysis.

Sent in print to 146,500 IET members the magazine also provides articles and up-to-the-minute news online, a daily email newsletter which is delivered to 70,000 people, white papers and webinars available to everyone covering both thought opinion style and niche technical topics.

E&T Jobs has a vibrant recruitment board and the E&T Innovation Awards celebrates our pioneers.


The Electro-Magnetic Systems Interest Group (EMSIG) – was established in 2017 to encourage discussion of research achievements and requirements for radiofrequency remote sensing systems and to promote research and development activities on such systems. The group is subtitled “The UK Radar Society” since the term “radar” is familiar to the widest audience, however, the range of sensing techniques which it covers also very much includes Electronic Surveillance, Radiometry, Electronic Warfare and some other related topics. ‘UK’ is included in the title to indicate that the overall aim is to promote excellence in remote sensing related capability in the United Kingdom; however, speakers and attendees external to the UK are also encouraged but on an invitation-only basis. EMSIG, being a new organisation, is currently undergoing development.

One of the principal EMSIG activities is to promote networking and cooperation between experts working in Industry (from Prime Government Contractors to Small and Medium sized Enterprises), Academia (from Professorial staff to PhD students) and Government organisations (e.g. Ministry of Defence, Defence Science and Technology Laboratory, UK Research Councils, Innovate UK).

The group holds an annual Forum at the start of the summer where all the members meet to discuss their needs, achievements and problems. At the same event many UK PhD students involved in radar-related study present posters showcasing their research.

The inaugural meeting in 2017 was well attended with many representatives from government, academia and industry - the EMSIG made a flying start. In June 2018 the EMSIG Forum was attended by ~130 people from all the 13 universities involved in radar and related research and 18 Companies, including Leonardo, BAE Systems, Jaguar Land Rover, Thales, MBDA, Roke Manor, Airbus, QinetiQ and others, plus government organisations such as DSTL and MoD. 72 posters were presented, including 33 by PhD students, at that event. The EMSIG embraces several Focus Groups to enable members to address particular common interests in depth.


EuMA, the European Microwave Association® is an international non-profit organization with a scientific, educational, and technical purpose. It strives to provide a single voice to European engineers and scientists in the interdisciplinary field of micro- and millimetrewave engineering, promoting public awareness of the benefits of microwave research and technology, and full recognition of microwaves as an important industrial and research area by the European Commission.

The Association, founded in 1998, is best known for organizing annually the European Microwave Conference since 1969 and the European Microwave Week since 1998.

With the Creation of first the Proceedings then the International Journal of Microwave and Wireless Technologies of the European Microwave Association, the EuMA took a major step towards enhancing its visibility in the international research community and becoming truly the voice of European microwaves.

The Royal Institute of Navigation

The Royal Institute of Navigation’s vision is to be an inclusive group of diverse disciplines working together for a more navigable world.

Today's Royal Institute of Navigation, or "RIN", is world-renowned, with membership spanning 60 countries and all continents.

RIN's activities cover the full breadth of navigation and precise timing, spanning land, sea, air and space and includes animal navigation, human cognition, navigable cities and buildings and all domains of the practice of navigation.
