3 BLUFBottom 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 unitsThe two pictures in this slide are to get a temperature of the crowd. If they ask about Blue and Red, it provides some insight as to what direction to bring the presentation.Report measurementsSigned ATEC Report (MG Dellarocco)
4 Problem StatementIn 2005 CENTCOM issued a Joint Urgent Operational Need (JUON) for Spectrum Operations at Tactical Level to de-conflict CREW and communications systemsTactical capabilities requested:Quick analysis of Counter Radio-controlled IED Electronic Warfare (CREW) against friendly forces frequenciesModel, predict and display interference eventsRecommend a mitigation strategy using available resourcesGenerate reports and graphically represent affected BFC systemsAbility to share plans with adjacent units to increase awarenessThe two pictures provide basic concepts of EW Coverage and Interference line depiction. Two of the main goals of the JUONS.
5 Capability SolutionsProvides Course of Action (COA) recommendations for the spectrum manager working in the G/S-6/3 supporting EW and RF offensive/defensive operationsAutomatically 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) systemsCombat 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 plansDescription discusses these pictures
6 Software Verification Time LineEMBM 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 LakeMost 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) participatingGovernment owned and produced software.Time line is present to provide talking points to an audience that would be interested in all the “COMPLETED” assessments that CJ has made it through. The direction coverage plot provides a nice depiction of directional jamming visualization.
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.Screen shot to the left shows a combat vehicle patrol with CREW coverage and “intended” jamming on enemy IED. To the right, a directional plot shows Electronic Attack coverage.
8 Future Propagation Models Future spectrum analysis will consider urban environments to improve mission performanceAn 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 environmentShort–range (less than 500m) simplified UPMIntegrate long-range / short range models into a single programRuralA model that accounts for the scattering effects in rural environmentIntegrated with TIREMSelectable by userDepiction of why urban propagation is important. Take in to consideration the effects of multipath and to visually show this in a plot.
9 EMBM SummaryEnhances 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 systemsSDR sustained by CERDEC which contains ARAT, SXXI and JETS dataEMBM has funding available [and prepared] to complete limited deployment to U.S. Army in 2013Current 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 ARATEffective for EWO and Spectrum Management personnelEWOs can plan for jamming missions and collaborate horizontally and verticallyEWOs can exchange planning data with spectrum managers for more efficient mitigation of issuesTRADOC has drafted a Capability Development Document (CDD) to institutionalize this capability throughout the armyProvides a viable foundation for additional capabilities and improved Electronic Warfare Battle Management Planning and Spectrum COP.Connect to DDS [interoperable with CPOF, AFATDS, etc…]Exchange data with new EWPMT effort
12 EMBM/CJSMPT ATEC REPORTED OA Test Event Results Operational Assessment: Ft Bliss TX, 26 Nov - 6 Dec Officiated by ATECSubject 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.Acceptable/SuitableExceptional
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 visualizerAllows any RF data in AO to be loaded automatically (EMB)EMB always current through automated updatesCreate custom emitter models (Enemy Emitters)Rogue emitter entry User Interface (UI)Allows for quick addition of enemy emitters to be modeledDetailed Route planningRoutes can be quickly drawn and adjusted (Air and Ground)CREW devices can be added to platforms for modelingAirborne jammers can be analyzed at altitude and speedEffects of jamming on BFC shown visually on any NGA mapMitigation tools for interference caused by jammersThrough 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 reuseDetailed reports and power point presentationsSingle click output for screen shotsAutomatically builds power point presentation of EMBM plansEase of use and aggregated data sourcesArchitecture slide at the top, integrated overlap method of interference prediction at the bottom. Integrated overlap is a “UNIQUE” capability of CJ to take all emitter data and use actual JETS data to do the modeling. This also provides more flexibility for the EWO to decide what he/she considers a target to be effectively jammed.Detailed and customized emitter models
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 dataSpectrum Plan Advisor (SPA)Provides interference mitigation solutionsSpectrum 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 reuseProwler to the left (EA). Convoy to the right (ground CREW) and a combined idea of what CJSMPT offers the EWO to bring this all together and determine jam capability and any potential unintended jamming.
15 Potential Enhancements EMBM provides a spectrum planning and analysis foundation that could be built upon to provide additional functions such asPlanning and Collaboration with Mission Command Systems (MCS) via Data Distribution System (DDS) – Data buss that CPOF, AFTDS, etc… usesMultiple simultaneous RF coverage plots (more detailed planning)Electronic Attack effectiveness and standoff distances (JEWEL)Provide Combined Spectrum / EW Common Operational Picture with CPOF InterfaceMultiple coverage plot (not a current capability, but a capability need expressed by multiple SMEs).
