Description


Air Force Doctrine Annex 3-51 Electromagnetic Warfare and Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations July 2019. Electromagnetic warfare (EW) is waged to secure and maintain freedom of action in the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS). Military forces and other entities are dependent on the EMS to sense, communicate, strike, and dominate offensively and defensively across all warfighting domains. EW is essential for protecting friendly operations and denying adversary operations within the EMS."The term EW refers to military action involving the use of electromagnetic (EM) energy and directed energy (DE) to control the EMS or to attack the enemy". This is not limited to radio or radar frequencies but includes infrared (IR), visible, ultraviolet, and any other free-space electromagnetic radiation such as wireless cyberspace applications. EW is critical in gaining freedom of action within contested and congested environments. EW consists of three divisions: electromagnetic attack (EA), electromagnetic warfare support (ES), and electromagnetic protection (EP). All three contribute to operational success across the operational environment. Proper employment of EW capabilities produces the effects of detection, denial, deception, disruption, degradation, exploitation, destruction, and protection. Capabilities inherent in the EW divisions can be used for both offensive and defensive purposes and are coordinated through electromagnetic battle management (EMBM).
