Joint Electromagnetic Spectrum Management Operations
JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF WASHINGTON DC

Military operations are complicated by increasingly complex demands on the electromagnetic spectrum EMS. All modern forces depend on the EMS. The EMS is a physical medium through which joint forces conduct operations. The importance of the EMS and its relationship to the operational capabilities is the key focus of joint electromagnetic spectrum management operations JEMSMO. The EMS is a highly regulated and saturated natural resource. The EMS includes the full range of all possible frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. Joint electromagnetic spectrum operations JEMSO include all activities in military operations to successfully plan and execute joint or multinational operations in order to control the electromagnetic operational environment EMOE. JEMSO is comprised of electronic warfare EW and JEMSMO and aims to exploit, attack, protect, and manage resources within the EMOE and resolve electromagnetic interference EMI in order to achieve the commander s objectives. JEMSMO is planning, coordinating, and managing joint use of the EMS through operational, engineering, and administrative procedures. The primary goal of JEMSMO is to enable EMS-dependent capabilities and systems to perform their functions in the intended environment without causing or suffering unacceptable interference.
