“Our military concepts, acquisition, tactics, and training have not coherently or fully embraced the central role of the EM spectrum and computer networks in our operations. In many ways we still treat the EM-cyber environment as a tool or means to support operations in the physical domains of sea, air, or land. The EM-cyber environment is now so fundamental to military operations and so critical to our national interests that we must start treating it as a warfighting domain on par with—or perhaps even more important than—land, sea, air, and space. Future wars will not be won simply by effectively using the EM spectrum and cyberspace; they will be won within  the EM-cyber domain.”

**Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Jonathan Greenert
