Regaining the Spectrum Offensive
Feb. 9 | 2 p.m. ET

The protracted and halting movement of the Pentagon toward new approaches to EP and EA could enable a revolution in military affairs toward decision-making and the central competition rather than the speed and scale of precision attacks. The Joint Warfighting Concept’s approach of expanded maneuver and the JADC2 strategy’s pursuit of a more interoperable force suggest their goal is a more disaggregated US military with more ways to compose and generate effects. The programs and use cases associated with the DOD’s emerging EA and EP capabilities would support these new decision-centric concepts by exploiting disaggregation to adopt a model where EP is achieved by avoiding detection and EA is executed by smaller, more attritable units.

This webinar will address the trends in warfare driving the DOD’s new operational concepts, how emerging approaches to EA, electromagnetic support and EP enable these concepts, and the implications for EMSO capability development.

The State of Directed Energy

Directed energy has progressed significantly in the past year, with warfighters field-testing multiple prototypes. But how can we ensure the technology is operationally relevant from the lab to the user? Ken Miller talks with Christopher Behre about how the directed energy community is progressing and scaling directed energy weapons that ensure mission success.

Chris Behre is Principal Engineer for the Directed Energy Weapons to the Director for Electronic Warfare in the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment. Ken and Chris discuss the achievements of directed energy innovations, the need to focus on overhauling testing facilities and infrastructure to improve capabilities and how each military branch is using directed energy weapons.
