objective with the different view to impose spectrum dilemmas to create windows of superiority for friendly forces,"
said Vollmecke. "We must present integrated EW, SIGINT, and Cyber capabilities across multiple domains to outpace
our adversaries."
In discussing how to best pace the
threat, Vollmecke suggested a changed
approach that emphasizes incremental
fielding, adaptable prototyping, rapid
engineering/integration, and small and
frequent software releases with direct

Electronic Warfare systems were on display during the 2nd Annual Cyber Electromagnetic Activity
(CEMA) conference held on Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD, Oct 17-20.

During his welcoming comments,
Crawford emphasized that investments
need to be made in the future to address
the new strategic realities. He also implored the CEMA community to ensure
they don't miss the opportunities available because the window for the future
is closing.
In a budget constrained environment
choices will need to be made regarding
the best solutions available to address
CEMA challenges. "Something no one
wants to talk about is divestiture. What
we need to do is identify what we have
to stop doing and transition that funding into what we need to do going forward to find comprehensive solutions,"
said Crawford.
Generating the questions and areas
that the conference should focus on
(see sidebar) was paramount in Vollmecke's comments. Additionally, he left
the audience with some key concepts
to consider. "In the past we achieved
'Overmatch' - looking into the future
that may no longer be an achievable

user and stakeholder involvement. "We
must pursue a different acquisition
model for aerial ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance), EW, and
offensive cyberspace operations. Our
cultural mindset must place greater emphasis on 'deliver now.'"
Vollmecke stressed that PEO IEW&S'
core activities are in the middle of rapidly congested and contested electromagnetic spectrum. "EW capabilities
have atrophied and we must make the
investment in our people and re-establish those critical strategic relationships
and industry support partnerships. We
must also recognize that we are in competition with the commercial sector and
we must adapt too it." He also emphasized the importance of cross-Service
experimentation, operational employment, and joint and coalition collaborative development.
With an eye to toward the research
and development arena, Muller stated,
"CEMA domain advancements are often
not due to novel technologies, but rath-

er new applications of existing technologies. At CERDEC, we look to leverage
the best of breed technology as part of
an integrated capability set and anticipate and mitigate known operational
gaps and challenges through novel applications of technologies."
"During the past year, the Army
has emphasized Cyber and CEMA situational understanding rather than only
situational awareness. We use to look
at 'what do we know,' approaching it as
'now that we know, how will the mission
be effected and what are we going to do
about it?'" added Muller.
The conference also served as a platform for leaders to discuss the recent
standup of the Army Rapid Capabilities
Office, which aims to accelerate critical
capabilities to the field to overcome urgent and emerging threats. Hirschman,
described the office's initial focus areas
of cyber, electronic warfare, survivability and positioning, navigation and
timing, as well as its unique focus on
capabilities that will deliver operational
effects within one to five years - a mission that is complementary to both the
Army Rapid Equipping Force and longerterm programs of record.
"Where the Rapid Capabilities Office comes into play can be summed up
in 'three Ds:' demand, decision-makers
and development," Hirschman said.
"Our demand signal comes from the
Combatant Commanders and what they
need to achieve overmatch in their
areas of responsibility. We will present a full-range of potential solutions
to the Army's decision-makers, namely the Secretary and Chief of Staff of
the Army, who are both on the Board
of Directors. Their decisions will drive
projects undertaken by the Rapid Capabilities Office, allowing us to reach
for high-risk, high-reward capabilities.
Finally, development will be needed, in
most cases, as we're not buying items
off the shelf for immediate fielding -
we will work with program managers,
the Army Science & Technology community and industry to adapt, enhance
and integrate selected technologies."
Due to the criticality of the CEMA mission and the success of the first two conferences, plans are already in the works
for a larger conference next year. a
