SSRF Tactical Spectrum Management

FEDeployment describes the deployment of an entity to a location for a period of time.

Introduction

The data elements used for tactical spectrum management are ForceElement and FEDeployment. Force Element is used to describe any entity (organization or platform) within a deployment that has the ability to transmit or receive information. This could be stand-alone equipment, or any group of equipment brought together to perform a task.

General tactical requirements are expanded into several operational tasks which must be performed to accomplish spectrum management. To conduct tactical spectrum management additional data may be required, including: JRFL, Force Elements, BSM Plan, CEOI, Operating Clearance, and JSIR as illustrated below. "Battlespace Spectrum Management"

Force Element

ForceElement is used to describe any entity (organization or platform) within a deployment that has spectrum dependent systems. This could be stand-alone equipment, or any group of equipment brought together to perform a task.

FEDeployment

FEDeployment describes the deployment of a force element to a location. Each deployment has a period of time for which the deployment is valid described by the start and end date/time.

The actual or possible deployment of a ForceElement is described in the FEDeployment data element, using either a reference to a location or to a route.

Battlespace Spectrum Management

ForceElement and FEDeployment information ultimately support a Battlespace Spectrum Management (BSM); a centralized mechanism for holistic governance, ownership, management and coordination of all BSM related activity within a specific area of operations. Battlespace Spectrum Management is beyond the scope of this documentation. See For Joint doctrine on Spectrum Management, see CJCSM 3320.01, Electromagnetic Spectrum Use in Joint Military Operations.

Data Objects

Force Element

ForceElement is used to describe any Unit or Platform that has the ability to transmit or receive RF signals.

Sub-Elements are Assets, Nomenclature, POCInformation, StockNum

Example:

<ForceElement>
  <Serial cls="U">USA:NA:FE:123</Serial>
  <Type cls="U">PLatform</Type>
  <OwningCountry cls="U">USA</OwningCountry>
  <Identifier>
    <Level cls="U">Primary</Level>
    <Name cls="U">USS Nimitz</Name>
  </Identifier>
  <Assets_etc/>
</ForceElement>

See the OpenSSRF Javadoc for more details.

FEDeployment

FEDeployment describes the deployment of a force element to a location. Each deployment has a period of time for which the deployment is valid described by the start and end date/time.

Sub-Elements are AtWaypoint, Project

Example:

<FEDeployment cls="U">
  <Serial cls="U">NLD::FD:123</Serial>
  <EntryDateTime cls="U">2011-12-25T00:00:00Z</EntryDateTime>
  <FERef cls="U">NLD::FE:222</FERef>
  <Type cls="U">Location-Current</Type>
  <Months cls="U">1-2</Months>
  <Years cls="U">2012</Years>
  <LocationRef cls="U">NLD::LO:333</LocationRef>
</FEDeployment>
