phase, the three contractor teams will
bring their TDUs to NAS Patuxent River, MD, where each one will be installed
on the centerline weapon station of an
F/A-18E (acting as a surrogate for and
EA-18G) and tested at the Facility for
Antenna and Radar cross section Measurement (FARM).
Anticipated funding for the NGJ
Increment II DET program will total
approximately $36.4 million over 20
months. Following the DET phase, the
Engineering and Manufacturing Development Phase of the program is scheduled to begin in late 2020.
The NGJ Increment II DET solicitation
number is N00019-18-R-0008. Proposals
are due by February 28. The point of
contact is Sarah Littleton, + (301) 7575522, e-mail sarah.littleton@navy.mil.

"IS THE EMS A DOMAIN AND WILL IT
BECOME ONE OR NOT?"
The 2017 Annual AOC International
Symposium and Convention held in
Washington D.C., brought new high-level attention to the long-ongoing debate

n e w s

surrounding the establishment of the
EMS as a warfighting domain.
In the opening morning session of
the final day of the event, Dr. William Conley, SES, Deputy Director, EW
OUSD(AT&L)/A/Tactical Warfare Systems, and Executive Director of the
EW Executive Committee (EXCOM),
reprised his talk at the 2016 event,
hosting a panel entitled "Change and
Innovation in our EW Industry," and
including Stephen McNamara, Technical Director of the Joint EW Center
(JEWC); Bryan Clark, Senior Fellow,
Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments (CSBA); Col William "Dollar"
Young PhD, Commander, 53rd EW Group
(ACC), Eglin AFB, FL; and John Stine,
Department Head Operation Research
at MITRE Corporation.
Now post-release of the DOD's EW
Strategy Document, Conley noted that
"Our doctrine, policies and processes
are continuing to evolve, and each
year, we're getting more identifiable
EW leaders. We need to make sure that
there is this overall network of all the
right leaders in all the right places so

polarization; 3) obtain previously generated contractor data related to lowband tactical jamming performance;
and 4) assess potential to rapidly deploy an interim pod solution or Early
Operational Capability (EOC) prior to
planned IOC and assess the use of open
architectures to support a potential
block upgrade approach.
According to the BAA, the TDUs will
be tested throughout the DET phase of
the program. Four major functions will
be demonstrated: 1) the ability to generate jammer technique signals across
the system frequency band, of the required number, quality, and Effective
Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP); 2)
the ability to place the maximum EIRP
at a designated location within the
required field of regard while meeting the multiple assignments goals;
3) the ability to selectively suppress
transmission during blanking and at
lockout frequencies; and 4) the ability
to protect the receiver during transmission and quantification of the potential receiver capabilities excluding
signal processing. During the testing
