In 2006, the US National Military Strategy for Cyberspace Operations (NMS-CO) added cyberspace as a domain “characterized by the use of electronics and the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) to store, modify, and exchange data via networked systems and associated infrastructures.” With the increasing international concern over cybersecurity, the US Department of Defense later redefined cyberspace as “a global domain within the information environment consisting of the interdependent network of information technology infrastructures, including the Internet, telecommunications networks, computer systems, and embedded processors and controllers.” The original DoD definition of cyberspace recognized the need for a medium to transport data (and information) between electronic systems; the current definition emphasizes information systems specifically. Just as the sea is the medium for movement of people or cargo in the maritime domain, electromagnetic spectrum serves as the medium for the movement of data and information in all domains. This makes it even more important for the EW community to understand the importance of Joint Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (JEMSO) to cyberspace operations and other information-related capabilities, particularly in the context of military operations conducted in contested environments.
This AOC presentation offers practitioners in all warfighting domains a fundamental way to think about Electronic Warfare (EW) in an age of increasing operational dependency on the EMS and information. For the EW community, it offers fundamental principles to guide a coordinated, coherent approach to our profession, including our relationships with the cyberspace and information operations communities.
