Abstract

ABSTRACT:EWA Government Systems, Inc. (EWA GSI) and team member NextGen Federal Systems LLC propose to examine how to utilize EWA GSIs Electronic Warfare Suite, an Electronic Warfare (EW) training application as the basis for EW Battle Management and Situational Awareness (EWBM-SA) system. ?The existing training application has all of the radio signal propagation and visualization components as well as signal map overlays to support real time intelligence feeds for display and situational awareness. ?We will examine other existing electromagnetic spectrum situational awareness approaches and techniques and consider their integration into our system application. ?Our proposed approach will allow for the Joint Forces Commander to determine through the use of multiple signal map overlays, the situational awareness to improve the utilization of the electromagnetic spectrum. The goal is for the commander to identify conflicts between blue forces spectrum use and potential conflicts between blue to gray/green spectrum use as well as assess red force operations and other interactions in the electromagnetic domain. ?The result of our Phase I effort will be a demonstration of our prototype system with limited capability and system design documentation with plan to move forward in Phase II for distributed EWBM-SA application tool.BENEFIT:The anticipated benefit will be to support of commanders to manage the electromagnetic spectrum to improve the usage by blue forces, understand and minimize the conflicts with non-combatant spectrum and understand the use of spectrum by red forces in order to potentially deny spectrum access.
