The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

12 Nov. 2020 -- The strategy results from the need for freedom of action in the electromagnetic spectrum, at the time, place, and parameters of DOD’s choosing.

The modern electromagnetic operational environment is increasingly complex and is congested, contested, and constrained. This Strategy addresses the complexity by advancing electromagnetic sharing and maneuver.

The strategy recognizes that technology must enable maneuverability in contested near-peer environments. It incorporates an electromagnetic enterprise focus on superiority in congested and contested space as well as the need to test, train, and operate in congested and constrained peacetime environments.
