Abstract:

Joint Vision 2010 relies on the principle of Information Superiority to enable its tenets of Dominant Maneuver, Precision Engagement, Focused Logistics and Full-Dimensional Protection and gain Full Spectrum Dominance. Information Superiority relies on the uninterrupted flow of information from source to destination, more often than not via the electromagnetic spectrum. The current spectrum strategy and the one currently in draft focus primarily on what Arthur F. Lykke, Jr. would describe as the means and the end, but neglecting the key component of the ways - those concepts which tie the means together, focusing them to accomplish the end. This paper proposes the two concepts of 1 Dominant Spectrum Knowledge to focus the automation efforts of the services and joint community, and 2 Spectrum Rules of Engagement to focus the tactics, techniques and procedures of the services and joint community to control, as opposed to just manage, the spectrum battlespace.
