sensitivity (e.g., superconductivity).
Secondly, we must integrate existing
terrestrial, tactical and space-based RF,
IR and EO sensors in order to create a
complete real-time picture of the EMOE
capable of providing an adequate level
of situational awareness upon which
to make maneuver decisions. Thirdly,
we must continue to develop softwareenabled agility capabilities such as
software defined radio (SDR), software
defined networks (SDN), virtualization
technologies and artificial intelligence

decision support capabilities. The extent to which we can achieve EMA will,
in a practical sense, rely heavily on NiFi capabilities; meaning the freedom
and speed with which we can maneuver
across different networks. This requires
that we integrate existing networks
and systems in new ways; this in turn
requires sophisticated new communications protocols along with new integrated transceiver and antenna systems.
Using maneuver warfare terminology, we can collectively think of these

technologies as enabling an automated
form of the German military principle
of "Auftragstaktik" or "mission tactics."
In simple terms, this involves telling
subordinates what the desired military
outcome is, and leaving it up to them to
determine how to best achieve the desired result. In our case, we desire that
our equipment be able to automatically
determine the best way in which to configure itself in order to maintain optimal
operations, or defend itself based on the
prevailing EM and network conditions.

ADAPTABILITY CYCLE FOR THE 21st
CENTURY WARRIOR
Electromagnetic maneuver warfare
is a time-, spectrum-, and networkcompetitive adaptability cycle. EMA is
achieved via a technologically enabled
OODA-loop (observe, orient, decide, act).
Observation of the EMOE requires the
use of multiple sensor networks. Orientation relies upon processing capabilities that integrate sensor data and
create a single, fused, real-time or nearreal-time view of the environment. Automated decision support software then
analyzes this picture and, if necessary,
triggers a reconfiguration event that in
turn enables action in the form of maneuver within the EMOE.
To illustrate this further, let's consider cognitive radio. These types of
dynamically reconfigurable radios automatically detect available channels
within the wireless spectrum, and then
according to prevailing conditions,
change transmission and reception parameters in order to avoid congestion
and maximize the number of concurrent
users supportable within the network.
This radio, along with its associated
cognitive cycle, was first described by
J. Mitola using an extended OODA-loop
[2]. In the interest of simplicity and
general applicability within the EMOE,
we adopt an abstract view and retain
the original OODA-loop. Having done so,
we can now describe cognitive radio operations as follows: In the "observation"
portion of the OODA-loop, the radio sensors survey the EMS. The resulting sensor data is subsequently processed and
a complete EMOE snap-shot is built in
the "orient" phase. From here, analysis
is performed in order to "decide" what
