Report: Gen. Mark Milley Orders Army to Review EW Capability Gap

Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley has directed the U.S. Army to study gaps in the military branch’s electronic warfare capacity, Breaking Defense reported Monday.

The review commenced in April and explores active measures to detect, deceive and disrupt adversaries’ radio and radar platforms.

Col. Mark Dotson, EW capability manager at the Army Training and Doctrine Command, told Breaking Defense the service branch aims to determine shortfalls “in the integration of cyber, electronic warfare and intelligence.”

The Army’s Cyber Center at Fort Gordon, Georgia, and Intelligence Center at Fort Huachuca, Arizona, lead the review and will submit a timeline this week.

Dotson added the team aims to provide final recommendations to Milley in late 2017 or early 2018.
