The Pentagon's recently completed electronic warfare strategy calls for increased investment in advanced electronic warfare (EW) technology designed for defense, as well as a proactive use of emerging electromagnetic spectrum systems to attack enemies. The vision of the electronic warfare strategy is to be agile, adaptive, and integrate EW to offensively achieve electromagnetic spectrum superiority across the range of military operations. Goals include organizing the EW enterprise to ensure electromagnetic spectrum superiority, training and equipping EW forces, and strengthening partnerships with allies, industry, and academia.
