The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is doing all it can to protect the Global Positioning System (GPS). Unfortunately, all they can do is have the director of national intelligence write down everything we know about hostile threats to the system. (C4ISRNet)


We’ve become focused on exquisite platform and system-of-systems designs for individual domain supremacy, but not on improving our command and control (C2) capability. If the US wants to keep ahead of Beijing and Moscow, we must eliminate the fixation on static plans, and dynamic operations must be the new normal. (Breaking Defense)


The U.S. Army recently awarded General Dynamics a contract to prototype an electronic warfare system on the new Infantry Squad Vehicle. The Multi-Domain Operations Weapon System, which is known by the Army as the Tactical Electronic Warfare System-Infantry Brigade Combat Team (TEWS-IBCT), is the next evolution of a capability General Dynamics has provided the Army in the past. (C4ISRNet)
