David May: Army Begins Five Design Updates to Fight Adversaries in Multidomain Operations

David May, senior intelligence adviser at the U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence, has said there are five design updates the service has started to implement in order to counter adversaries across space, electromagnetic spectrum and cyber domains, C4ISRNET reported Tuesday.

May said at TechNet Augusta in August that one of those updates is the service’s plan to launch cyber and electromagnetic activities sections to facilitate spectrum management as well as the integration and synchronization of electronic warfare and cyber operations.

Other updates include the Army’s plan to establish electronic warfare platoons within brigades to work with signals intelligence groups; EW companies within expeditionary intelligence brigades; and a multidomain detachment at Fort Lewis in Washington.

May said the service will set up a cyber support battalion within Army Cyber Command that will integrate signals, intelligence, information, fires and cyber operations into a single formation.
