IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT TECHNOLOGY -
PEOPLE MATTER
Decades of EW have demonstrated its
tactical value, but have resulted in a lack
of durability and stability in the absence
of dedicated EW leadership. Our thinking
has progressed from "materiel is EW" to
"materiel defines EW" to "materiel supports EW," with the human component
emerging as the game-changing feature
in the face of global tech parity. However
without a consolidated governance
entity, we have no means to manifest or
enforce this essential advance in thinking. Whereas the physical technologies
and systems of spectrum warfare remain
important, failure to elevate the discussion to the level of DOTMLPF/P strategy
- including the deliberate consideration
of sustaining operationally grounded
expert human capital - will eliminate
our discriminator, removing our insurance against tech parity and chances for
sustainable superiority. The good news is
that by all indications, we now possess
the manpower, expertise, technology and
resources to achieve baseline and growable coherence across our DOD spectrumcentric capability portfolio, with the only
aspects absent being the commitment,
protocols and established architectures
to actively collaborate across Service
barriers. Unfortunately, the component
of commitment is directly opposed by
an overarching desire to insulate and

protect individual Service portfolios and
programs of record.

THE COMMERCIAL APPROACH
TO SPECTRUM VS. THE MILITARY
APPROACH TO SPECTRUM
The omnipresence of the spectrum in
modern life and modern combat rejects
a clear division between states of peace
and warfare, and we should not allow
this murkiness to reduce the difference
between commercial wants and warfighting needs to a simple matter of commerce.

The commercial world relies on the wide
use of open standards with regards to
spectrum using systems, such as mobile
phones and wireless routers. But these
open-standards, if poorly understood, can
be exploited by an adversary and become
vulnerabilities in warfare. Links must be
survivable under deliberate attack, and
not merely tolerant of routine civil congestion. As we approach chaotic military
conditions with compliant commercial
expectations of viability, we continue our
exposure to the cost-imposing strategies

It is occurring among those responsible
for mastery of energy (i.e., EW and SM)
- hence, JEMSO. DE/laser, EMP, other
HPM and related EMS applications also
belong to this family and constitute the
future of Spectrum Warfare. The future
soundness and flexibility of EMSO and
EMBM will rest on whether we decide to
gather the spectrum enterprise around
its data customer, blending cyberspace
and a small portion of the EMS to discard/deemphasize emerging capabilities
in Energy-based warfare, or we choose
to strengthen and unify the spectrum
portfolio around energy (i.e., traditional
EW, spectrum management and emerging EW applications in DE/laser/EMP),
yielding a self-sustaining, coherent and
logically inclusive enterprise of EMS
operations, equally benefitting all who
require EMS control.
