The U.S. Army's 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team (2SBCT) has tested a new tool built to help military personnel manage electronic warfare and spectrum activities in a common operating environment.

The Army said Wednesday soldiers used the EW Planning and Management Tool to track high-payoff targets during the test and perform spectrum management operations for a command post-exercise.

According to the service, the software allowed users to position EW systems in optimal positions across the battlefield, visualize effects in the electromagnetic spectrum and transmit information to the Army Field Artillery Tactical Data system.

The branch's EW integration product manager expects to hand down a decision on the full deployment of the tool in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022.
