U.S. Navy Eyes ‘Electromagnetic Maneuver Warfare’ System; Capt. Rob Gamberg Comments

electronics motherboard microchip_EBizThe U.S. Navy is looking to a new concept of electronic warfare in an effort to gain control of the electromagnetic combat field, Breaking Defense reported Friday.

Sydney Freedberg Jr. writes the Navy plans to develop an electromagnetic battle management system to coordinate unmanned aerial systems, surface forces and submarines.

The service wants to replace the Prowler with the Boeing-built EA-18G Growler platform as the network’s pillar for gathering enemy signals data and jamming the opponent’s network, according to the report.

“You’ve got your certain set of frequencies, you’ve got your certain power settings, and you’ve got your certain set of modulations and that’s kind of what you use, day in and day out,” Capt. Rob Gamberg, lead author of the Navy’s implementation strategy for the electronic maneuver warfare concept, told a conference.

Gamberg also told Breaking Defense that Navy troops would maneuver electronic warfare by dealing with radio waves.

Capt. Scott Farr, deputy commander of the Pacific Fleet’s electronic attack wing, also told the publication the Navy is integrating electronic warfare into the new P-8 Poseidon patrol plane, E-2D Hawkeye radar plane, MH-60R helicopter and the new F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.

Gamberg added that the service is building the Naval Integrated Fire Control-Counter Air network for anti-aircraft defense network to manage EW data, Freedberg reports.
