Electronic Warfare Success Hinges on Spectrum Dominance

 In Air, Communications, Forces & Capabilities

Military forces must con­tin­ue evolv­ing to stay ahead of their adver­saries, lead­ing to a more flex­i­ble, scal­able approach to threat detec­tion, analy­sis, and response. The US Air Force recent­ly it fea­tured  retired its very first “Compass Call” air­craft. Made in 1982, spe­cial mod­i­fi­ca­tions such as locat­ing, lis­ten­ing, and jam­ming enemy com­mu­ni­ca­tions. As a result, this aircraft’s sys­tems could severe­ly inhib­it force com­mu­ni­ca­tions and coor­di­na­tion. These advanced capa­bil­i­ties ensured its oper­a­tion for almost four decades. In that time, how­ev­er, the use of the elec­tro­mag­net­ic (EM) spec­trum oper­a­tions in con­flicts began to evolve at a much faster pace, lead­ing to more com­plex EW appli­ca­tions. Varied tech­nol­o­gy and market trends merged to enable the ongo­ing emer­gence of new threats, chal­leng­ing modern mil­i­tary units to iden­ti­fy these quick­ly evolv­ing threats in a timely manner.
