The Department is proactively engaged with Industry along with National and International partners to develop and exploit the technologies which will enable the most efficient use of the EMS and ensure global operational flexibility. DoD is leading Spectrum Policy evolution which will allow all who operate within the EMS to take advantage of these technologies. The main component of this evolution towards the efficient use of the EMS is equitable sharing among all users within the environment. This practical approach includes the development of, and access to, testing standards, sharing technologies, and trust relationships among Federal and Non-Federal users of spectrum. DoD must balance the competing demands for spectrum to support national security and foster economic development. The Department will continue to proactively examine ways to gain efficiency within the EMS while leading the world in the development and testing of dynamic technologies which will help America and its partners succeed in the future.
DoD is focused on maximizing warfighter operational effectiveness with assured spectrum access when faced with these new operating realities and technological possibilities. Ultimately, DoD’s goal is to secure mission success by advancing electromagnetic spectrum superiority as part of fielded capabilities, supported by innovation through partnerships, trusted engineering, proof of concept and rapid transition to operations.
