Spectrum Management

Understanding the environment

Influencing or potentially controlling the contested and congested Spectrum is critical to all defence and security missions. IEW assets provide the Indicators and Warnings (I&W) and an understanding of the EMS to Commanders at all levels.

Many trends are shaping the requirements of EW and its capabilities for future operations, from the growth in traditional threats from nation states, regional asymmetric conflicts and an increase in network centric attack, to the increasing technological parity of emerging nations, unmanned operations, commercial off-the-shelf technologies and spectrum congestion.

Increasingly, EW is becoming important beyond the sphere of standard combat operations to include the full range of internal security threats from espionage, insurgency, terrorism and cyber-attack.
