Pentagon Establishes Electronic Warfare Programs Council



Pentagon Electronic Warfare

Through an initiative to increase technologic warfare capabilities throughout the Department of Defense and U.S. military, the Pentagon has created a task force to address shortfalls. This panel is dubbed the Electronic Warfare Executive Committee. Deputy of Defense Bob Work stated, “They believe it is an important part of their offensive and defensive arsenal, and it's going to be on the forefront of any initial guided munitions salvo exchange.” His main goal is to create a focus group that examines investments across the different departments while forming recommendations. These suggestions will then be sent to the Secretary and Department of Defense to implement changes. Furthermore, they hope that this new committee will shift the military’s focus to payloads rather than platforms. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are known to be equipped with weapons, sensors, and cameras to relay immediate information on the battlefield.

The Electronic Warfare Executive Committee hopes to utilize these UAVs to make concise and urgent decisions. Work also plans for a Business Process Systems Review, allowing more money to be allocated towards technologic advances. This review includes a full analysis of the Defense Department’s one million employees with more than $134 billion used towards managing logistics, health care, service contracts, and financial management. Further improvements may come from the commercial business sector, with a predicted twenty to thirty percent change. Technologic advancements include robotics, biotechnology, miniaturization, data analysis, and other key areas. This will include operations on both land and sea.

They hope to replace the outdated AN/ALQ-99 jammer with the Next Generation Jammer, which will be placed on the Boeing EA-18G Growlers.
