1 Electromagnetic Battle Management Ok, so why am I here today? What I want to provide you is the current status of what we at the Joint Electronic Warfare Center believe is a critical piece for collaborative EW across the Joint community.Major Jay Yniguez (E-knee-guess)Lead EW EngineerFuture Capabilities DivisionJoint Electronic Warfare CenterUnited States Strategic CommandLackland Air Force Base, Texas

I don’t believe I need to go deeply into this since this is the slide that’s become well known and has very effectively carried the message of what our problem is. We know that we have to operate in both a congested and contested Electromagnetic Operational Environment or EMOE. The key now is that folks ARE finally realizing that we absolutely cannot assume full spectrum access. Because of this realization, those same folks now know that they have to take action to successfully fight in the EMOE.

3 EMBM Requirement 2009 Electronic Warfare Initial Capabilities Document Approved by Joint Requirements Oversight Council MemorandumRepeatedly states the need for the battle management of systems in the EMSCOCOM and JTF requirements for EMS dependant systems are increasingThe electromagnetic operational environment (EMOE) has changed considerablyElectronic WarfareInitial Capabilities Document (ICD)Validation Authority: JROCApproval Authority: JROCMilestone Decision Authority: MultipleDesignation: JROC InterestPrepared per JROCMApproved per JROCMVersion 1.0, 30 Oct 2009The requirement to have a capability to do this was officially stated in the Fall of 2009 by the JROC in the Joint EW ICD. It highlighted the need for more effective and efficient management of EMS resources. We’ve also consistently seen the demand signal stated in the COCOM IPLs and JTF JUONS that there’s a need for EMS related capabilities. So, the bottom line is that all of us in this room know that we’re obviously going to have to fight the EMS and therefore control the EMS in any conflict in the future. EMBM is the framework we’re proposing to help solve this issue and ensure interoperability, compatibility, and collaboration across the Services and domains.
4 Current Ops A/G/N/J-2 A/G/N/J-3 A/G/N/J-6 Electromagnetic EnvironmentSo, another part of our problem is that current EMS processes and tools do not support integrated Combined Arms maneuver in the EMS. From an Airmen’s perspective, the EMS is still predicated on the big sky theory or ’big EMS, little photon’ theory. Our functional subdivisions operate throughout the EMS in a stove-piped fashion between the intel, ops, and communications communities with very little integration. Deconfliction is often conducted on the fly during execution and most of this deconfliction isn’t even close to being automated. Again, from an aviator’s perspective, this is concept is similar to not having an integrated Air Operations plan or Air Battle Management Concept.(EMBM is about updating the processes and tools for JEMSO)Separate orgs / processes / peopleworking the same operational environment!
5 The Problem Congested & Contested EMOE Stove-piped Planning & ExecutionSo, combining the congested and contested EMOE with our stove-piped processes results in big, big problems which are manifested in comm fratricide, UAV losses, and even loss of life when soldiers are turning off CREW devices just so they can talk. The bottom line is that commanders can’t efficiently accomplish their mission and, against an adversary who will truly fight the EMS, that commander can’t effectively accomplish his mission.Inability to maneuver in the BattlespaceLimits JFC’s C2, puts mission at risk, lives at risk
6 Situational Awareness EMBMProvides the framework for integrating all the elements of Joint EMS Ops (JEMSO)Integrates JEMSO with other aspects of operations (Air, Land, Sea, Space, Cyberspace)Provides effective and efficient use of EMS resources and capabilitiesSituational AwarenessDecision SupportCommand& ControlSpectrum ManagementElectronic WarfareISR & Non-Traditional ISRSo, how do we deal with all of this? What we’ve adopted is a pyramid structure to represent the EMBM concept. EMBM was created to provide the framework for integrating intel collection activities, ops command and control issues, and spectrum management issues across the EMS. It’s intent is to facilitate connectivity and automation in order to integrate Joint EMS Operations, or JEMSO, across all the domains (air, land, maritime, space, and cyber). It’s designed to make effective and efficient use of resources to prevent EM fratricide, deal with interference and jamming, and rapidly respond to new requirements and time sensitive tasks.(First use of acronym. Also spelled out on slide)Supports CC’s EMS Scheme of Maneuver Takes the Fight to the Adversary

Each mission area is working within its own cycle. The intent of the EMBM framework is to take all user EMS requirements and integrate processes. It’s meant to synchronize the JEMSO operations cycle with the other operations cycles across JTF.(Domains are places, mission areas are capabilities (air operations, space ops, amphibious ops) that may or may not be cross domain)Produce / Distribute JCEOI / JRFLSynchronizes the overall JEMSO cycle

Like air battle management, EMBM provides the processes and connectivity for integrating JEMSO and other ops elements. So, let’s take a look at the primary aspects of EMBM.(JEMSO already spelled out. EMBM integrates JEMSO elements with each other as well as external elements of operations (Air Ops, Land Ops, Special Ops, etc).

10 Situational Awareness Aspects of EMBMDecision SupportProgress towards CC’s intent / objectivesRed potential COAsJEMSO COAs / target / nth-order effectsID EM interferenceEMI impact on friendly systems / opsEM interactions / effects predictionBased on our SA, we can integrate JEMSO with the rest of the scheme of maneuver and look at second and third order effects of operations in the EMS. You can also get true integration of space and cyberspace capabilities with traditional JEMSO capabilities and communicate effects clearly to commanders for rapid and informed decision making. Effective decision making ultimately supports the final aspect of EMBM which is command and control.Again, from an Airmen’s perspective, imagine if there was no Air Control Order or Air Tasking Order and aircraft flew wherever they wanted without any overall control or knowledge of where they were. We, in essence do that now in the EMS.(Advanced capabilities are not limited to space and cyberspace. Updated slide notes)Decision SupportAttack WaveformTargetSituational Awareness
11 Situational Awareness Aspects of EMBMCommand and ControlCapability taskingAuthority delegation (e.g. M2M rule sets)Indications and warningCommand& ControlIn air battle management, strong situational awareness and planning are essential to effective command and control. This is even more critical for Joint Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations given the tens- of- thousands of EMS dependent systems required to interoperate simultaneously. An extremely fluid EMOE dictates a robust, responsive C2 requirement. Automation for reporting up, down, and across echelon is absolutely key to success in this environment. So, let’s look at the aspects of EMBM holisticallyDecision SupportSituational Awareness

As with any capability, people are the primary resource. An EM Ops Cell requires expertise in EMS control, communications, and collections. It requires representatives from primary EMS users like space, aviation, IO, comm., intel, and it must be represented in the operations center with other mission areas.Like air battle management, the EMBM system has to be comprised of many interoperable and compatible subsystems, not looking to build a new C2 infrastructure, but leverage existing infrastructure like Link-16 for instance. The key is that these systems have a common interface scheme using common data standards and common protocols. But, the need for commonality has to happen NOW as acquisition efforts are in progress….why….?

Although they may sound a bit foreign at this point, they’re important to ensure we’re talking the same language and understanding things in the same way. The spectrum management community and our team as worked to ensure we had consensus on these and other basic terms. This lexicon has been thoroughly staffed and is just awaiting signature at the joint staff to be published.Draft JP EW / JP 6-01 JEMSMO

We’re now in the process of staffing the CONOP through STRATCOM. We’re working recommendations for DOTMLPF changes.With an agreed upon CONOPs, we plan to work with the Services and Joint Staff to start submitting the DCRs to implement EMBM. We plan to begin with standards at the base of the pyramid and the overarching doctrine at the top. As I said earlier, the Services are already hard at work on the details in between. Like air battle management supports joint air operations to achieve airspace control, EMBM supports JEMSO to achieve EMS Control.EMBM supports JEMSO to achieve Electromagnetic Spectrum Control
