The goal of Electronic Warfare is to manage the electromagnetic environment in a way that denies an adversary use of the spectrum to plan, coordinate and communicate. It is also necessary to design robust, wireless information systems that can work in the harsh RF environments found on today's battlefields. Spectrum is often crowded and dynamic in bandwidth and frequency utilization and it might be just as likely a particular system sees interference from the enemy as it might from other "friendly" users.
To help assure that a deployed design will work, there is no substitute for spectrum recordings that are of the highest fidelity, can be shared throughout the design team, and can be modified and then re-injected, at IF or RF, into the systems under test. Ideally a designer would want spectrum captures that were taken in-situ so the communications environments can be accurately reproduced.
