This monograph focuses on stunted development of the US Armys modern electronic warfare EW capability. It compares the technological change that occurred in the US Army, Air Force, and Marines as it relates to the electromagnetic spectrum. It explores how the Armys Intelligence Branch, which was the proponent of the EW discipline from 1955 to 2005, mismanaged the discipline. Additionally, this monograph evaluates the Armys different operational concepts and the degree to which they advanced or retarded EW capacities. The US Army and Intelligence Branch involuntary and intentionally neglected EW at different times throughout the history of the capability. A situation, from which the psychological disorder of encopresis is a metaphor. The US Army is still neglecting the EW discipline as of the writing of this monograph even as its competitors continue to advance its EW technology and tactics.
