Electronic Warfare as we know it is in a state of flux. In OIF and OEF it was primarily used to detect and jam IED remote triggering devices. With OIF officially over Dec 31, 2011 and OEF drawdown beginning in 2012 there is a concern over the future of EW.
“There is fear out there that when we cease operations in Afghanistan and we’re no longer confronted by an IED threat that we’ll completely shelve the electronic warfare development and maturity,” Ekvall said. “I don’t believe there is a danger of that. I believe the senior leadership of the Army understands electronic warfare is more than just the defeat of IEDs.”
In other words, the Army, along with the other services are ramping up their efforts to enable their EW forces to have more tools and capabilities. This has much to do with China and North Korea’s recent efforts in Electronic Attack.

IDGA’s 2nd Annual Electronic Warfare Summit will discuss the latest technology available to deny the opponent the advantage of, and ensure friendly unimpeded access to, the EM spectrum
