Purpose

This regulation establishes policy, assigns responsibilities, and provides strategy for integration and interoperability of cyber electromagnetic activities (CEMA). CEMA consist of cyberspace operations, electronic warfare (EW), and spectrum management operations. This policy emphasizes CEMA EW systems conducting electronic attack (EA), electronic warfare support (ES), and electronic protection (EP) through rapid software reprogramming (RSR). It is the Army policy for CEMA EW mission software products (MSPs) and Mission Enabling Software (MES). MSP include aviation survivability equipment software, mission data sets, and ground-based counter-improvised explosive device software, known as threat load sets, and nonmission software products such as the Army Reprogramming Analysis Team (ARAT) survivability software loader development and distribution. It describes the operation of Army capability to identify and counter changes to threat system composition, capabilities and signatures within the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) and coordinated with spectrum management operations. MES encom passes all other Army Reprogramming Analysis Team-Program Office (ARAT-PO) products, for example, computer based training, system software support and maintenance, pattern developments, and CEMA threat verification and validation. The Army creates effective countermeasures to hostile introduction of new CEMA threat systems and changes that impact the Army's ability to detect, classify, declare, and counter the threat. The development of these countermeasures enhances security and preservation of friendly forces and equipment. This policy gives the Army a process which enables soldiers a reach-back RSR capability that will assist commanders to attain tactical superiority, achieve surprise, gain and retain the initiative, maintain awareness of new and emerging threats, and obtain decisive results while maintaining vigilant data collection efforts to detect introduction of new threat signals or changes to existing threats through the RSR of CEMA systems.

Applicability. This regulation applies to the Active Army, the Army National Guard/Army National Guard of the United States, and the U.S. Army Reserve, unless otherwise stated. It also applies to all proponent agencies involved in research and development, acquisition, life cycle support, intelligence, planning and integra- tion, and operations activities of electronic warfare and target sensing systems requirements.
