The Center for Military Aeronautical Studies “Giulio Douhet” (CESMA – Centro Studi Militari Aeronautici) held its 2nd Symposium, entitled “Air Power”, from May 23 to May 24 at the Center of Higher Studies for Defense (CASD – Centro Alti Studi per la Difesa) in Rome. The two-day conference focused on Air Power today, as derived from the White Paper for International Security and Defense by the Italian Ministry of Defense, where concepts such as E3-Spectrum (Electromagnetic Environment Effects – Electromagnetic Spectrum) in relation to the electromagnetic environment on the battlefield are considered to be a key asset for commanders.
Nowadays, the science and technologies developed within the electromagnetic physics field are increasingly affecting products, environments and, consequently, defense operations. The same technology or very similar ones have likewise begun to be applied in the civil sector, where the Internet of Things, Autonomous Driving, and Industry 4.0 are starting to increasingly influence and affect our daily lives.
The impact of such technologies, and the resulting operational capabilities, has led to the extension of military-civil working groups focused on these technological aspects, particularly spectrum management, electronic warfare and applied E3. The aim is to ensure that operational capability is safer, more effective and also up to date while also optimizing the cost and investment required for a planned mission.
The aerospace sector has always been a pioneer in using these technologies and with more than 30 years’ of experience in the field, IDS has been developing powerful electromagnetic software for the simulation of operational scenarios within a single environment. At the 2nd CESMA Symposium, “Air Power”, IDS discussed the impact of E3-Spectrum and associated cybernetic technologies on related operational scenarios in the defense sector. The IDS discussion took place during the “1st session – Ways & Means” on May 23 and was presented by our CAE Head of Business Unit, Electromagnetic Engineering Division, Andrea Cantarutti.
