New Electronic Warfare Career Fields

The Electronic Warfare Team consists of all unit 29-series, which includes the 29A Electronic Warfare Officer (EWO), the 290A Electronic Warfare Technician (EWT), 29E Electronic Warfare NCO, the ASI 1J and 1K (identified and EW school trained Soldiers from other MOSs), and the 25E Spectrum Manager.¬† As a team they have one major overarching task:¬† To integrate EW into all unit operations to achieve the commander’s desired effects and end-state.¬† To accomplish this task the EWO will lead the EW Working Group (EWWG) (FM 3-36, CH 3, Figure 3.1), which will determine EW requirements and integrate these requirements into the unit’s planning and targeting processes.¬† The EWWG may include, but is not limited to, key members of S/G3, S/G2, S/G6 (to include Spectrum Manager), S/G7, ALO, Fires, TECH OPS/Special Technical Operations (STO), and LNOs from supported units.¬†¬† They together as a team will produce the highly technical, integrated products, ideas, and cohesion that weave EW effects that increase effectiveness and efficiency throughout execution of the plan.

 

Course Overviews:

a.  The Electronic Warfare Officer's Qualification Course is a thirteen-week MOS-producing course delivered at the FCOE (Fort Sill, OK).  Graduates are awarded MOS 29A.  The course provides Electronic Warfare (EW) officers the education and training in the essential, core skills necessary to successfully perform EW functions and perform EW officer responsibilities in support of the Commander's concept of   operations.  Emphasis is on Army and Joint doctrine, tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) to prepare officers to participate in EW coordination, cyber-electromagnetic activity integration, planning, and execution at the tactical and operational levels in a variety of Army and Joint organizations.

b.  The Electronic Warfare Technician Basic Course is a fifteen-week MOS-producing course delivered at the FCOE (Fort Sill, OK).  Graduates are awarded MOS 290A.  The course provides Electronic Warfare (EW) Warrant Officers the education and training in the essential, core skills necessary to successfully perform EW functions in support of the commander's concept of operations.  Emphasis is on Army tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) and technical skills to prepare Warrant Officers to integrate EW in full spectrum operations in a variety of Army organizations, with the understanding of how this fits into joint operations.

c.  The Electronic Warfare (EW) Specialist Course is a nine-week MOS producing course delivered at the FCOE (Fort Sill, OK).  Graduates are awarded MOS 29E. These EW NCO's are provided the education and training in the essential core skills necessary to successfully perform EW functions in support of the commander's concept of   operations.  Emphasis is on Army and Joint doctrine, tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) to prepare NCO's to participate in integrating EW into Full Spectrum Operations (FSO) in a variety of Army and Joint organizations.  Focus is on the Battalion level.

In addition to the FA29 (Officer), 290A (Warrant Officer) and 29E (Enlisted) MOS-producing courses, there are other venues to train unit personnel on Electronic Warfare.  These opportunities include the Army Operational Electronic Warfare Operations Course (ASI 1J) and the CREW Master Gunner Course (ASI 1K).

  1. The 1J course is a six week resident course delivered at the Fires Center of Excellence at Fort Sill.  The 1J course is designed to give personnel designated to serve as Electronic Warfare Officers (EWOs) an understanding of the duties & responsibilities of an EWO in order to provide commanders dominance within the Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS) in a Joint environment.  This training teaches integration of operational capabilities in (or within) the EMS, as well as avoiding EA fratricide and enhancing the Commander's ability to shape and control the operating environment.  This course is focused on Battalion-level and above EW operations (SGT-O6) and is open to all MOSs.  Personnel requiring training will attend the OEWO course and gain an ASI of 1J.

  2. The 1K (CREW Master Gunner) Course is a two week resident course delivered at the Intelligence Center of Excellence (ICoE) at Fort Huachuca.  This course is designed to give personnel selected by their unit commander an understanding of the duties & responsibilities of a Company CREW Specialist in order to provide commanders counter radio controlled IED capability   in a Joint environment.  This course is focused on company-level CREW and EW operations and is open to all MOSs.  Personnel requiring training will attend the CREW Master Gunner Course and gain an ASI of 1K.
