ABSTRACT

Electromagnetic Defense Task Force (EDTF): 2018 Report   [open pdf - 2MB]

"From 20-22 August 2018, Air University brought together leading subject matter experts from government, industry, laboratories, and academia to discuss vulnerabilities and threats, raise awareness, and explore mitigation strategies on an array of national security challenges in the EMS [electromagnetic spectrum]. The inaugural summit was attended by more than 135 military and civilian personnel representing more than 40 United States Department of Defense organizations, NATO, academia, and the private sector. During the summit, working groups focused on electromagnetic pulse (EMP), geomagnetic disturbance (GMD), lasers and optics, directed energy (DE), high-power microwaves (HPM), and EMS management. The summit was designed to challenge contemporary thinking and develop original thought about EMS and encourage actions to recover the technological initiative. Another priority was to immediately address the widening EMS threats to the United States and its allies. This report provides a summary of insights, conclusions, and recommendations developed during the inaugural summit"
