Electronic Warfare- The Forgotten Discipline is a Joint Air Power Competence Centre (JAPCC) article by Commander Malte von Spreckelsen, GE N.

When discussing contemporary conflicts, there’s a consensus that such engagements will span all possible dimensions. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) comprehensively understands potential threats across land, sea, air, space, and, increasingly, cyberspace. As nations advance in creating novel weapon systems for these domains, it’s regrettably apparent that NATO initiatives have often overlooked the advancement of Electronic Warfare (EW) as a discipline. Consequently, a generation of military experts has matured without considering the vulnerabilities linked with operational dependence on the electromagnetic spectrum.
