Title USMC Electronic Warfare 2025: Trading Expertise for Advanced Technology.
Publication Date Apr 2011
Media Count 34p
Personal Author G. Z. Gosik
Abstract This paper explains why the planned Marine Corps transition to the F- 35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) and use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) to conduct Electronic Warfare (EW) for the Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) after 2019 will deplete the USMC of its subject matter experts and create a need for external support to carry out the EW mission. The future capability needed to successfully conduct EW for the MAGTF will certainly exist, in the form of the equipment available, after the retirement of the EA-68 airframe and beyond 2025. The piece that will be missing is the operational expertise. in the field of airborne electronic warfare during the transition period away from legacy equipment. EW will remain a critical war fighting capability for the MAGTF, and the ability to maintain dominance within the electromagnetic spectrum will be paramount as the reliance on advanced technology continues in the U.S. Armed Forces.
