war, and should be considered equal to
traditional ground, sea, and air forces.
The PLA sees EW as an important force
multiplier, and would likely employ it in
support of all combat arms and services
during a conflict.
"PLA EW units have conducted jamming and anti-jamming operations,
testing the military's understanding
of EW weapons, equipment, and performance, which helped improve their
confidence in conducting force-onforce, real-equipment confrontation operations in simulated EW environments.
The advances in research and deployment of EW weapons are being tested in
these exercises and have proven effective. These EW weapons include jamming
equipment against multiple communication and radar systems and GPS satellite systems. EW systems are also being
deployed with other sea and air-based
platforms intended for both offensive
and defensive operations."

IN BRIEF
The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (OASD R&E) is seeking input
from large and small businesses, as well
as University Affiliated Research Centers (UARCs) about electronic warfare

and cyber "convergence implementation capabilities." According to a notice
from OASD R&E, it will hold a technical exchange meeting with industry on
July 22-23 to "better understand what
Electronic Warfare (EW) and Cyber implementation capabilities exist, what
capabilities are being pursued/developed, what requirements do capabilities
satisfy, and identify current and future
technology investments gaps." It states,
"The government seeks to address EWCyber integrated employment capabilities and address attacking threat
vulnerabilities in order to maximize the
implementation of electronic and cyber
convergence capabilities. Ideally, suggested solutions, methodologies, and
tailorable processes should address the
broader tactical, operational and strategic national interests. Responses to this
RFI should, for example, identify implementation
programs/ideas/concepts
regarding the preferred EW-Cyber convergence application against specific
targets of interests, as well as addressing technical approaches for ensuring
delivery of EW-Cyber capabilities and
propose funding expectations, sources,
etc." The RFI adds, "As a result of EW and
Cyber domain complexities, there is not
a codified cross-enterprise understanding of EW and Cyber integrated implementation capability that exists today.
Therefore, agreement on the reasonable

use of appropriate EW-Cyber convergence implementation capabilities is being pursued." The points of contact are
Brian Doran, e-mail brian.p.doran.ctr@

The Air Force Research Lab's Directed Energy Directorate, Laser Integration Division (LID), has released
an RFI for support services, including
demonstrating, troubleshooting and
testing of developmental laser systems
and beam-control systems in a laboratory, emulated environment, or testing
range; integration of laser systems, subsystems, components and technologies
with supplemental technologies onto
demonstration platforms; and environmental emulation of military platform
environment including but not limited
to vibration, temperature, acoustics,
