Abstract : The electromagnetic spectrum is a finite resource that is critical to the United States military's ability to gain superiority in the other five warfighting domains. The Department of Defenses electromagnetic strategy is spectrum access when and where needed to achieve mission success. The future electromagnetic operating environment, however, will find gaining assured access increasingly difficult due not only to adversaries actively contesting it, but due to the congestion attributed to the exponential growth in commercial and civilian access. Despite these signs, the United States Federal Government and the Department of Defense continue to cling to a century old model for managing the electromagnetic spectrum a revolution is in order.
