also transcend the perennially defensive mindset of EW; Spectrum Warfare
is a sword as well as a shield. Directed
energy, laser, and high-power microwave
(HPM)/electromagnetic pulse (EMP)
weapons are no longer laboratory curiosities; they are the next generation of
spectrum weaponry and must be aggressively incorporated into the EMS Warfare
portfolio in order to remain paced with
competitor developments in weapons
technology. Commensurately, EMS protection includes protection from any
effects of all energy (e.g., laser and DE
hardening, EMP hardening, etc. - even
"stealth" and "counter-stealth" technologies), not merely the effects of adversary
"jamming." Emerging energy weapons
and the defense against them remain
a key part of EMS warfare and must be
included in any schema of EM battle
management. The aggregation of these
technologies allows us to move from EW's
narrow/legacy reaction to "threat" to
spectrum warfare's expanded/inclusive
focus on "opportunity."
Logically, we would all be much
better served - including our cyber

Doctrine is now evolving to capitalize on the
physical and functional overlap in responsibilities
between Electronic Warfare and Spectrum
Management to comprise a future-proof cadre for
Joint EMS Operations (JEMSO).
brethren - by gathering up all of the EMS
Operations (EMSO) toys under one Joint
Capability Area (JCA), perhaps labeled
"EMS Control". The de facto Domain of
concern is the electromagnetic spectrum
because cyberspace - omnipresent and
significant as it may be - is arguably a
digital meta-communications system
that functions within a portion of the
EMS. The fact that the great majority
of cyber interest is met in the RF region
is merely a milestone in time...a distraction for the short-sighted. We must
acknowledge the reality that what is
casually labeled "convergence" is really
a demand for deliberate integration
within a "non-kinetic combined arms"
framework, and that cyberspace ops are
best served by an EMSO portfolio that's

autonomous, coherent and comprehensive across all uses of radiant EM energy.
Without spectrum, the value of data
in warfighting is all but eliminated.
In fact, without control of this space,
or spectrum control, modern warfighting incurs unsustainable risk. As in
land warfare, maritime warfare and air
warfare, this characterization describes
the contest for control of a permanent,
natural, physical space - the electromagnetic spectrum - versus the nearsighted fixation on the "electronics"
that participate in it or the data that
depends fundamentally upon it. Note
that convergence is happening, but not
between the articulated requirements
for mastery of data (a skillset) and mastery of radiant energy (another skillset).
