EMSO Update: The Battle for Sensing and Sense-Making
Feb. 22 | 2 PM

Today’s wars in Ukraine and Israel highlight the criticality of sensing and understanding on the battlefield. Despite ubiquitous satellite, airborne, and terrestrial surveillance, combatants on both sides of these conflicts have been surprised, with sometimes catastrophic results. The US military should embrace the resulting lessons as it considers how to counter Chinese forces in China’s own back yard. Survival in this highly-contested environment will depend on mobility and distribution, carefully orchestrated with electromagnetic warfare, while massing effects will require sensing and communications the enemy cannot detect and counter-target. This webinar will highlight current trends in US military force design and operational concepts and how they will rely on new approaches to EMSO..
