Frank Kendall, defense undersecretary of acquisition, technology and logistics and co-chair of the executive committee on electronic warfare, has created a new EW office within that committee, Breaking Defense reported Wednesday.

Sydney Freedberg Jr. writes Kendall also picked a Senior Executive Service official to lead the newly created office.

Jay Kistler, Pentagon’s director of EW and countermeasures, told a National Defense Industrial Association breakfast that the selection of Bill Connelly for the SES took place in December, according to the report.

“We needed an office that could act as the secretariat for this, that could be the focal point for gathering that information,” Kistler told reporters.

Kendall and Gen. Paul Selva, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, serve as co-chairs of the executive committee on EW, with senior civilian acquisition executive and uniformed four-star vice chief representing each service, Breaking Defense reports.
