The Critical Role of DOD's Electromagnetic Spectrum and the Strategy to Protect It
Thursday, December 10, 2020

However, the Department of Defense is using it for serious things--like national defense and controlling military equipment and operation. We talk with GAO's Joe Kirschbaum--an expert on defense infrastructure, and a director in our Defense Capabilities and Management Team--about a new report on DOD's strategy to protect the electromagnetic spectrum.
