Rep. Don Bacon Pushes for US Electronic Warfare Capability

Don Bacon

Rep. Don Bacon, R-Neb., has indicated the U.S. must work to regain an edge in the military electronic warfare domain, C4ISRNET reported Tuesday.

“In the 1990s, when I was a captain and an electronic warfare officer, it was clear we had the no. 1 electronic warfare program in the world, period,” Bacon said the Department of Defense Intelligence Information System conference via a precorded video message.

The congressman introduced in April a bill that calls for the DoD to develop an advanced simulation technology and implement efforts for joint electromagnetic spectrum operations readiness.

He also pushed for the inclusion of EW-related provisions in the fiscal 2019 National Defense Authorization Act that President Trump approved earlier this week.
