In this episode, we continue our series on the role of Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO) in Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2). Host Ken Miller sits down with Jim Conroy of Northrop Grumman Corporation for an industry perspective on delivering capabilities that meet JADC2 requirements for speed, compatibility and commonality. Then, Ken is joined by Mr. Patrick Flood, Senior National Security Policy Advisor for Congressman Don Bacon (NE-02), a staff lead for the congressional Electromagnetic Warfare Working Group (EWWG).

Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2)
1656

JADC2 is a vision to connect all military sensors into a single network. It is designed to give a situational awareness picture across every area of responsibility  for Combatant Command leaders and senior Department of Defense officials. But the question is, how will these various systems and activities across all military services come together in a compatible network? In this episode, we speak with Mr. Steven “Tango” Tourangeau, Dean of the new Reginald Victor Jones Institute on Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations.

Ken and Tango discuss the challenge of fusing sensor data across weapons systems, the role of electromagnetic spectrum operations as the “backbone” of the JADC2 mission, and how artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) are changing discussion on the line between intelligence and operations.

The Invisible Battlefield
2155

The US military must chart a new course to project, achieve, and sustain electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) superiority against peer competitors. What technology and operational concepts must the Department of Defense (DOD) adopt to address these challenges and persistent gaps in US electromagnetic spectrum operations (EMSO)?  In this episode, we speak with Bryan Clark, Senior Fellow and Director of the Center for Defense Concepts and Technology at the Hudson Institute. Bryan is the lead author of a new report, “The Invisible Battlefield: A Technology Strategy for US Electromagnetic Spectrum Superiority.”

 

Ken and Bryan discuss the need to invest in game-changing technologies, such as passive and multi-static sensing, networked electronic attack, and multi-function capabilities. They also address improved training through the use of live, virtual and constructive environments and the opportunities for open system architecture.

The State of EMSO Today
2261

Electromagnetic spectrum operations (EMSO) is rapidly changing the way we think about modern warfare. Too often, EMSO is placed on the back burner and only thought of until a crisis arises. This forces leaders to scramble to find solutions for achieving an advantage. We need a proactive approach that provides our warfighters what they need today and anticipates what they need tomorrow. Is EMSO on the right path? We answer this in today’s episode with John Knowles, editor of the Journal of Electromagnetic Dominance (JED)


Ken and John discuss the biggest developments in EMSO over the past year, from new joint doctrine to a unified strategy to greater oversight by Congress. To learn more about today’s topics or to stay updated on EMSO developments, visit our website.
