Abstract:

FM 3-36 provides Army commanders and their staff guidance on how the electromagnetic spectrum can impact their operations and how friendly EW operations can be used to gain an advantage. This manual describes the application of EW in support of full spectrum operations and provides a baseline for ensuring a common understanding and operational consistency. Although new equipment, tactics, techniques, and procedures continue to be developed, the physics of electromagnetic energy remains constant. So, as new strategies and tactics are devised to meet the cyberspace environment of the 21st century, electronic warfare remains a critical component of our national defense.
