Electronic Warfare Short Course

This electronic warfare (EW) resurgence has been pushed forward in great part by the Defense Department, which has boosted its investment in electronic warfare capabilities as it gears up for great power competition.

Electronic warfare has been a feature of modern conflict since the first battlefield radios were introduced, but it has come a long way from simply jamming radio commsThe U.S. military now leans on electronic warfare systems to sense, exploit, and control the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) to enable armed forces to conduct operations.

Military personnel rely on the EMS for navigation, positioning, communications and other capabilities, ensuring those capabilities for allies and denying them to adversaries.

There are three main elements to EW:

  • Electronic support intercepts, identifies and locates signals emitted from threats
  • Electronic attack directs energy toward threats to disrupt and neutralize their effects
  • Electronic protection protects people, facilities, and equipment from enemy or friendly disruption or electronic attack

Political supporters of electronic warfare believe it’s crucial for the U.S. to be in a position to achieve superiority in the electromagnetic spectrum.

The Pentagon has increased EW research, development, test and evaluation funding and procurement funding by 9.7% and 7.1%, respectively, in 2020 relative to the previous year’s request. Under the Trump administration EW spending increased by $1.48 billion in 2021 (a 16.3%  increase), $1.53 billion in 2022 (a 16.9% increase) and $1.41 billion in 2023 (a 14.8% increase).

In total, the Defense Department has gone on record as planning to spend $27.8 billion on procurement and $25.8 billion on RDT&E over the course of the future years defense program.

Much of this emphasis on new electronic warfare development comes from U.S. adversaries spending more on EW projects. Analysts report that China and Russia in particular are upping their electronic warfare warfighting strategy.

Military specialists believe that the future of electronic warfare is extremely important because that will be the domain where wars are won or lost.

The EMS Superiority Strategy includes five goals:

  • Develop superior EMS capabilities
  • Evolve to an agile integrated EMS infrastructure
  • Pursue total force EMS readiness
  • Secure enduring partnerships for EMS advantage
  • Establish effective EMS governance

It’s become apparent with the resurgence of electronic warfare technological advances that battlespace dominance requires the upper hand in tactical and strategic troop and asset capabilities, and superiority with C6ISR — command, control, communications, computers, cyber-defense and combat systems and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance.
