Note: Designed specifically for non-technical personnel in the program management and acquisition communities.

Course Description:

As electronic systems have evolved, they have become more complex, and electromagnetic environmental effects and spectrum certification requirements have become critical factors in the ability to employ military systems and platforms effectively. Reductions in the number of military platforms and personnel and increased reliance on technology means that controlling electromagnetic environmental effects on weapon systems is critical to future U. S. military success. Not accounting for E3/SS during systems design, production, and integration can result in degraded systems performance, program schedule delays, and funding issues. The objectives of this course are to give attendees an awareness of how electromagnetic environmental effects and spectrum certification concerns impact systems acquisition and to provide an understanding of the tasks that must be undertaken during the acquisition process to ensure compatibility.

 

OBJECTIVE
Electromagnetic Environmental Effects (E3) and Spectrum Supportability (SS) for Program Managers is a one-day course that introduces Program Office and acquisition personnel to the proper ways to consider (E3) and Spectrum Supportability (SS) concerns in the DoD systems acquisition process.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Anyone in government or industry whose responsibilities involve the acquisition or fielding of DoD weapons platforms and systems, including any command, control, communications, computers, or other electronic systems can benefit. This course requires no extensive engineering education or experience. Current Military and Civilian EMC experts can also benefit from the continuously updated information in the broad range of E3 and SS topics covered in this course.
