IAI to develop Spectrum Planning and RF Situational Awareness for Air Force Electronic Warfare

The Air Force needs the capability for near real-time efficient use of spectrum allocation in any cyber domain. This cannot be achieved at present because there is no system in place capable of automating the spectrum planning process. Furthermore, current operational and tactical spectrum planning and management practices do not keep pace with the operational tempo. Existing spectrum management solutions are still static plans that do not adapt easily to the dynamics in a theater. Cyberspace and space-based capabilities are essential for U.S. operations and are also vulnerable to attacks from adversaries, in the form of electronic jamming. To address these issues, IAI will develop a dynamic spectrum planning system that assesses electromagnetic interference and enable spectrum situational awareness and dynamic spectrum allocation. This will prevent spectrum over-provisioning, strengthen the communication capability of warfighters, and save valuable RF resources needed to succeed in current and future anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) Electronic Warfare (EW) environments. As new weapons, including cyber domains and integrated unmanned and manned platforms, enter the Air Force inventory, this technology will understand and dynamically control the electromagnetic spectrum at the tactical edge.
