What's a Crow?
The name “crow” emerged from the first large-scale use of Electronic Warfare during the WWII Battle of Britain and the US/Allied bombing raids over Europe. The Allied Radar Countermeasure operators used the code name “ravens” and employed receivers and transmitters to monitor and jam threat frequencies.
Military jargon later changed “ravens” to “crows.” Since that time, the defense of (and maneuver within) the Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS) has been undertaken by “crows” across the military, government, industrial base,
2020 Theme: Multi-Domain Operations - Integrating Across the Spectrum
The importance of the electromagnetic spectrum cannot be over emphasized; it is the bedrock that supports the emerging concepts of multi-domain operations, an integrated and synchronized application across all domains.
Awareness of the spectrum, understanding its properties, its role in modern day operations, and the ability to command and control effects and operations within the spectrum are necessary to fully strategize, plan, and execute multi-domain operations.
The dominance of the electromagnetic spectrum is foundational to successful multi-domain operations.
