Spectrum Supportability Risk Assessments are a relatively new requirement mandated by DoD Instruction 4650.01, DoD Policy for Management and Use of the Electromagnetic Spectrum–This session provides a one hour in-depth look at the data requirements, format and content of the SSRA.  In the form of a workshop participants will build a rudimentary SSRA, walking through the information required in the document and the subsequent review process.  Includes extensive audience participation.  Since approved use of available spectrum does affect communications access and availability spectrum supportability is an important information assurance consideration.


Specific topics to be discussed:

  • What is the purpose of the SSRA?
  • What regulatory, operational and technical data is required?
  • What are the submission and processing requirements?
  • What is the expected format and content of the SSRA?

Over the past 15 years much has changed geopolitically, economically and technologically.  The US has been attacked on its own territory, survived the greatest recession since the depression, watched as millions of classified documents were leaked to the world, and begun to understand the security paradox that the internet has created.  In this talk, Eric Bassel will describe one potential path our adversaries will pursue and what the US must do to prepare for this new, emerging threat.
