DISA Announces EMS Capability Toolkit Initial Release Capability

The Defense Information Systems Agency has announced the initial features of a new electromagnetic spectrum capability toolkit for warfighters.

The Electromagnetic Battle Management-Joint is designed to improve soldiers’ situational awareness across the electromagnetic spectrum. The tool’s first iteration, called EMBM-J Situational Awareness, is a cloud-based platform that integrates EMS capabilities and functions into a single system and gathers and arranges data into a single display.

EMBM-J is designed to be interoperable with EMS systems specific to the U.S. military branches. The capability will continue to be developed alongside the U.S. Strategic Command, DISA said Thursday.

EMBM-J is the latest in the line of efforts across the U.S. defense sector for EMS technology development.

In November, the U.S. Army’s 3rd Infantry Division tested the Advanced Dynamic Spectrum Reconnaissance, an artificial intelligence-enabled solution designed to identify and avoid adversarial signal jammers. The capability was initially developed by Vanderbilt University and adopted by the Army Combat Capabilities Development Command and the Army Research Laboratory.

In August, the U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division tested early-stage EMS operation capabilities for small, multi-domain unmanned systems.
