Raytheon's Cyber, Electromagnetic Battle Management Showcased For US Army

Raytheon has unveiled Cyber and Electromagnetic Battle Management (CEMBM), a new battle management tool at Cyber Quest, a US Army event.

The event informs cybersecurity requirements and priorities.

CEMBM integrates cyber and electromagnetic spectrum awareness capabilities into the Electronic Warfare Program Management Tool (EWPMT), an Army program of record since 2014, the company announced Monday.

"CEMBM was one tool we experimented with, and each tool showed us a different level of the 'art of the possible' regarding the convergence of EW and cyber," said Major Steve Roberts, Cyber Branch chief, Cyber Battle Lab, Cyber Center of Excellence.

Raytheon's EWPMT focuses on the ability to see and understand events in the electromagnetic spectrum. CEMBM provides a shared situational understanding of electronic warfare, EMS and cyber, and management and control of organic assets.

Using CEMBM, EW officers can determine the best path forward without being jammed or discovered; jam the enemy's communication ability; and if there are cyber emitters, disrupt the ability to use them.

"The challenge lies in operating in the EMS while managing it in a way that minimizes negative impacts to other players and parts of the mission," said Frank Pietryka, director, Airborne Information Operations at Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems.

"With CEMBM, teams now have a common operational picture where they can move back and forth, at will, between cyber, EMS and physical terrains. It is a true game changer." Pietryka added.

This latest cyber and EW tool provides operational and life-cycle cost benefits, including increased mission effectiveness, reduced planning cycles, coordination of effects, collaboration with other elements of mission command, EW and cyber effectiveness analysis and reduced training costs.
