Electronic Warfare – Cyber & Electromagnetic Activities
RF spectrum is a pervasive requirement for modern military operations. Our reliance upon the electromagnetic spectrum in almost every area of battlefield operation is what drives the strategic importance of Electronic Warfare (EW). The EW domain is a discreet battlefield itself, engaging cyber operations and electromagnetic activities to disrupt, intercept and influence enemy communications and behaviour.
Spectrum capacity is a finite resource, and shares occupancy with civilian operations which differ from country to country. In active operations there is a further need to consider allied/grey-forces’ own operations which are not under direct control. As such the ability to manage spectrum reactively is critical to success.
Electromagnetic operations need to deliver an ever-changing picture of active operations, need to react to changing environments and deliver actionable intelligence which can be used to assure spectrum dominance.
The CRFS approach to CEMA (Cyber and Electromagnetic Activities) is to focus on solutions which are agile, collaborative, automated and actionable. Environments and operations change by the second, so our technical solutions need to keep pace. CRFS software solutions deliver automated intelligence using tools such as Machine Learning and are designed to be NAIMS (A.I.) ready.
