On this week’s Cyber Report, Maj. Gen. Gregg Potter, US Army Ret., Northrop Grumman’s lead corporate executive for Fort Meade and Aberdeen Proving Ground, discusses integrating US Army electromagnetic warfare, cyber and information operations with Defense & Aerospace Report Editor Vago Muradian.
On the convergence of cyber and electromagnetic warfare:
Potter says the radio frequency spectrum allows for electronic warfare, cyber capabilities and communication all in one, and senior leaders now demonstrate a good understanding of this convergence.
“I’ll speak for the Army, being a former Army officer. And in fact, the command Army Cyber is probably gonna be renamed to Information Warfare Command in the future.”
The Navy has already combined their communications and intelligence people, forming CNO N2/N6, Potter said.
On the future of the integrated information space:
The bottom line: we need to be able to effectively counter adversary disinformation and invest in systems that help accomplish this, Potter said.
