Electronic Warfare (Defense) - Thematic Research

Electronic Warfare (Defense) - Thematic Research


Electronic warfare (EW) is defined as any military action involving the use of electromagnetic and directed energy to control the electromagnetic spectrum, or to attack the enemy. This definition involves numerous military activities that include locating, exploiting, degrading, targeting, disrupting, denying, deceiving or destroying the enemy’s electronic systems that support military operations or aim to deny friendly forces the ability to use the electromagnetic spectrum. EW is an action whose objective or means is within the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS). This excludes deployment of cyber capabilities to control the EMS, as this is within the scope of cyber warfare.

Russian prowess in the EW domain, along with the fruition of their reforms, paired with China’s military maturation and increased extroversion mean that Western efforts in EW have significant strategic repercussions and will see significant expenditure increases in the short, medium, and long-term future.

Key Highlights

  • Demand for EW products will be driven by its universal (all domain) use
  • There will be a significant spending push in EW technologies, Heavily driven by Russian capabilities and increased Chinese belligerence
  • The post-Global War on Terror environment, catalysed by Chinese emergence and Russian resurgence, has seen the need for rapid changes to be made in the electronic warfare domain. These peer or near-peer threats form a drastically different threat matrix and operating environment from the previous two decades, dominated by asymmetrical and low intensity conflict for the majority of Tier one nations.
