Abstract:

Combat Electronic Warfare Intelligence CEWI Battalions have only been in the Army force structure for about 10 years. Initial testing of the CEWI concept occurred in the mid 70s and activation of CEWI units occurred in the late 70s and early 80s. Most of the CEWI battalions that have been formed over the last decade have just now 1988-1990 been fielded with objective intelligence and electronic warfare systems. As a result, the doctrine and many of the procedures that underwrites CEWI operations are relatively immature. The author commanded the Armys first fully modernized heavy division CEWI unit. the unit achieved full modernization in July of 1988 just prior to the annual REFORGER exercise where its capabilities were fully utilized in unconstrained relatively tactical operations. This study seeks to provide insights into existing CEWI doctrine and to offer some alternatives to current tactics, functions, techniques and procedures for the evolution of CEWI organizations and operations. edc
