The research question purposed is how does the US Army control a contested electromagnetic spectrum to enable operational maneuver The initial hypothesis posits the US Army develops a policy for electronic warfare which seeks to control the entirety of the electromagnetic spectrum. The policy is comprised of both materiel and non-materiel capability-based approaches which are necessary to dominate the electromagnetic spectrum in future warfare.
