As a former Joint Staff action officer who was deeply involved in EW and Information Operations (IO) policy and doctrinal issues, I can tell you that the JEWC, USSTRATCOM and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff appear to be moving in a doctrinal direction that is conducive to the future health of Electronic Warfare. By the time you read these words, the JEWC, the EW Service Leads, the Joint Spectrum Center and members of the AOC staff will have met to discuss a lexicon of terms which may help to define a “new horizon” for Electronic Warfare within a Spectrum Warfare construct. And what is this new horizon? Over the past ten years, EW professionals and advocates within and outside of the Services have highlighted the importance of the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) to current operations. In fact, the JEWC defines the EMS today as the “oxygen” of joint operations. This basic understanding of the importance of operations within and across the spectrum can only benefit the EW mission area and highlight the necessary resourcing required to ensure our warfighters have the EW capabilities they need to be successful. Having worked directly on EW and IO doctrinal publications in the past, I can tell you that developing a Spectrum Warfare construct will be a long and difficult process. However, in my discussions with the JEWC and the EW Service leads, I sense a renewed vigor and serious contemplation of how a Spectrum Warfare construct may be developed. In developing a lexicon or terms of reference for Spectrum Warfare, I would remind those involved that the definition of Electronic Warfare within Joint Publication 1-02 (JP 1-02) has remained constant for at least 30 years now. My opinion is that the definition of EW has stood the test of time and should not be changed. However, the scope of the definition has changed over the years and is most readily apparent in the expanding EMS target sets our warfighters have experienced since the early 1990s. The EW mission area can be a significant component of the Spectrum Warfare construct, along with missions such as spectrum control and management. I applaud the efforts of the JEWC and the Service EW leads. Now let’s move forward and explore this further. – Chris Glaze
