New STRATCOM Center to Handle Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations Across Department of Defense

The U.S. Strategic Command has established the Joint Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations Center, a unit tasked with ensuring EMS availability and facilitating communications, information sharing and precision targeting capabilities for warfighters.

The Department of Defense seeks to consolidate relevant operations in the center to strengthen the United States’ spectrum advantage. According to a press release, keeping that advantage will require effective management given adversaries’ growing presence in the EMS domain and the U.S. military’s increasing reliance on advanced communications systems and electronic warfare capabilities.

During an inauguration ceremony on Wednesday, JEC Director Brig. Gen. AnnMarie Anthony said her organization will play a role in supporting U.S. dominance across every warfighting domain and serve to coordinate the Joint Force’s EMS efforts. She highlighted her team’s readiness to carry out the center’s mission.

The JEC is expected to convene experts from other service branches and agencies. It will also share information and develop guidance with international allies and organizations from the private and academic sectors, the Air Force Global Strike Command said Wednesday.
