Abstract:

Department of Defense spectrum management is a crucial element of our national defense. Within spectrum management we will either exercise proper controls or we will hamper our own ability to achieve victory. The spectrum management process does not belong to the Department of Defense DoD, and we must work with other government agencies. Time tables are often short, especially during wartime operations, and this is all the more reason why spectrum management processes should be followed. This research includes an analysis of current National, DoD, Joint, and Air Force publications and instructions, as well as a review of Government Audit Agency studies to see where DoD is today regarding spectrum management. Recommendations are provided for improving visibility into spectrum management and to improve the overall process.
