Army Col. Jim Ekvall discussed the service’s project to synchronize electronic warfare, cyber operations and electromagnetic spectrum in an interview with Federal News Radio that aired Wednesday.
Ekvall, chief of the Army’s electronic warfare division, told radio station host Jared Serbu the three elements will form part of a doctrine for cyber electromagnetic activities, or CEMA.
Serbu reports the branch is looking to establish a center for excellence intended to consolidate training of its electronic warfare and cyber workforce.
According to the report, Ekvall believes military cyber operations and electromagnetic warfare are interrelated but distinct activities.
Ekvall also described how the Army utilizes the electromagnetic spectrum to carry out warfare during its battlefield operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.
