U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command Unclassified//For Official Use Only Mar 2013 Coalition Joint Spectrum Management Planning Tool (CJSMPT) / Electromagnetic Battle Manager (EMBM)
2 Agenda BLUF Problem Statement Capability Solution Software Verification EMBM Value Added Future Propagation Models Summary Questions Enemy Emitter and Force Structure
3 BLUF Bottom Line Up Front: –EMBM/CJSMPT has completed an ATEC assessment which called for a limited deployment of the system. CERDEC has funding dedicated to complete limited fielding. Require a tasking from FORSCOM G-3 to the G-6 authorizing the training and deployment to selected Army units Report measurements Signed ATEC Report (MG Dellarocco)
4 Problem Statement In 2005 CENTCOM issued a Joint Urgent Operational Need (JUON) for Spectrum Operations at Tactical Level to de-conflict CREW and communications systems Tactical capabilities requested: –Quick analysis of Counter Radio-controlled IED Electronic Warfare (CREW) against friendly forces frequencies –Model, predict and display interference events –Recommend a mitigation strategy using available resources –Generate reports and graphically represent affected BFC systems –Ability to share plans with adjacent units to increase awareness
5 Capability Solutions Provides Course of Action (COA) recommendations for the spectrum manager working in the G/S-6/3 supporting EW and RF offensive/defensive operations Automatically integrated CREW loadset emission data to assist the planners with de-conflicting SRW and other command and control comms. Models and simulates the Electromagnetic Operational Environment (EMOE) to better support Command and Control (C2) systems Combat Patrol planning of personal and vehicular jammers while on-the- move or at-the-halt [including UAS planning] Detailed 3D emission plots assist with squad and above SRW reuse plans
6 Software Verification Time Line EMBM Completed multiple verification events to include a Joint Military Utility Assessment (JMUA) – All services unanimously agreed requirements were meet and limited fielding should proceed. CREW loadset analysis confirmed during JMUA at China Lake Most recently a full function operational assessment was completed at Ft Bliss. ATEC released CLR reporting complete success and acceptance of the tool by all Subject Matter Experts (SME) participating Government owned and produced software.
7 EMBM Value Added Enables combat patrols to be planned and simulated Provides the capability to mitigate Counter IED Jammers from friendly RF systems (TOP 5 CIED GAP) Maximizes CREW force protection through automated spectrum planning, collaboration, jammer de-confliction and reuse of existing spectrum. Models CREW systems [mobile and static] with actual Army Reprogrammable and Analysis Team (ARAT) loadset data, providing graphical depiction of jammer footprint superimposed on top of standard military maps. Reduces risk to personnel and equipment through analysis by providing early identification and mitigation of frequency fratricide which would hinder Battle Command.
8 Future Propagation Models Future spectrum analysis will consider urban environments to improve mission performance An Integrated Urban Propagation Program Consisting of: –A Long-Range simplified analytical Urban Propagation Model (UPM) –An Urban model that accounts for terrain effects in a mixed urban/terrain environment –Short–range (less than 500m) simplified UPM –Integrate long-range / short range models into a single program Rural –A model that accounts for the scattering effects in rural environment Integrated with TIREM Selectable by user
9 EMBM Summary Enhances force protection capabilities for operational units. Protects commander’s ability of uninterrupted command and control (C2) Interoperable EMBM Spectrum Data Repository (SDR) consolidates and logically links DOD databases enabling analysis, planning and mitigation of spectrum dependent systems –SDR sustained by CERDEC which contains ARAT, SXXI and JETS data –EMBM has funding available [and prepared] to complete limited deployment to U.S. Army in 2013 –Current modules (CES, SPA and SDR) all being used by PM EW on the Electronic Warfare Planning and Management Tool (EWPMT) Program of Record (POR) Only tool that automatically includes CREW devices and Friendly Force Comms systems using ARAT Effective for EWO and Spectrum Management personnel –EWOs can plan for jamming missions and collaborate horizontally and vertically –EWOs can exchange planning data with spectrum managers for more efficient mitigation of issues TRADOC has drafted a Capability Development Document (CDD) to institutionalize this capability throughout the army
12 EMBM/CJSMPT ATEC REPORTED OA Test Event Results Acceptable/S uitable Exceptional Operational Assessment: Ft Bliss TX, 26 Nov - 6 Dec 2012. Officiated by ATEC Subject Matter Experts (SMEs): Spectrum Managers Selected by FORSCOM/TCM GNE. Four Army Spectrum Managers (Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) 25E), one Marine Corps Chief Warrant Officer 4 (MOS 0640) and one Department of the Army (DA) Civilian from ASMO.
13 EMBM Capabilities DoD RF data aggregated automatically — All “authorized” BFC spectrum records (SXXI) — CREW Loadset measured data (ARAT) — Details of many DoD and commercial emitters (JETS) Define Electromagnetic Operational Environment (EMOE) — Graphically depict area of operation on map visualizer — Allows any RF data in AO to be loaded automatically (EMB) — EMB always current through automated updates Create custom emitter models (Enemy Emitters) — Rogue emitter entry User Interface (UI) — Allows for quick addition of enemy emitters to be modeled Detailed Route planning — Routes can be quickly drawn and adjusted (Air and Ground) — CREW devices can be added to platforms for modeling — Airborne jammers can be analyzed at altitude and speed — Effects of jamming on BFC shown visually on any NGA map Mitigation tools for interference caused by jammers — Through collaboration with Spectrum mangers frequency interference can be quickly mitigated or planned for. — Mitigation can allow spectrum records to be automatically updated to increase spectrum utilization and reuse Detailed reports and power point presentations — Single click output for screen shots — Automatically builds power point presentation of EMBM plans Detailed and customized emitter models Ease of use and aggregated data sources
14 Collaboration with PEO IEW&S EMBM module reuse with planned Electronic Warfare Planning and Management Tool (EWPMT) –Communications Effect Simulator (CES) Provides potential interference and models CREW ARAT data –Spectrum Plan Advisor (SPA) Provides interference mitigation solutions –Spectrum Data Repository (SDR) Aggregates DoD data sources (ARAT, SXXI and JETS) Personnel matrix to PM EW providing technical guidance for EWMPT (POR for PEO IEW&S) Technology exchange and software reuse
15 Potential Enhancements EMBM provides a spectrum planning and analysis foundation that could be built upon to provide additional functions such as –Planning and Collaboration with Mission Command Systems (MCS) via Data Distribution System (DDS) – Data buss that CPOF, AFTDS, etc… uses –Multiple simultaneous RF coverage plots (more detailed planning) –Electronic Attack effectiveness and standoff distances (JEWEL) –Provide Combined Spectrum / EW Common Operational Picture with CPOF Interface
