One of the most pressing deficiencies in recent joint operations has been trying to achieve coordinated and cohesive operations within the Electromagnetic Environment (EME). Decades of “Lessons Learned” and interference reports have culminated in a realization that anything that operates in the EM spectrum (communicates, radiates, locates) must be effectively managed. This short survey course will review current processes in EW and Spectrum Management, but will also outline many of the requirements and challenges of building an effective EM Battle Management architecture. Topics discussed include: EM Spectrum principles, EMS Warfare concepts, EW targeting, Spectrum Management, U.S. EW capabilities, cognitive radios, tactical datalinks, concepts of EM Battle Control (EMBC), and current status of the Airborne Electronic Attack Systems of Systems concept. Lessons will also include a brief look at EM Battle Management plans currently in development.
