Pentagon deploys new command cells for electromagnetic spectrum ops

The US Department of Defense has created a new cadre of forward deployed, operational teams specifically tasked with aiding combat commanders in waging war across the electromagnetic spectrum, a top US general said.

The Joint Electromagnetic Spectrum Operational Cells consist of uniformed and civilian contract specialists who provide technical and operational expertise in offensive and defensive measures within the electromagnetic spectrum, US Air Force Major General Lance Landrum, deputy director of the Pentagonís Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations Cross Functional Team (EMSO CFT), told reporters in Arlington, Virginia.

The creation of the operational cells is one element of the cross-functional teamís efforts to improve Electromagnetic Battle Management (EMBM) throughout the areas of operation where US and allied forces are deployed, Landrum said during the 19 December briefing, sponsored by the Association of Old Crows.
