Hopefully you will be familiar with our platonic solid icosahedron polyhedron from previous media posts (quite a mouthful, we’re working on it). You may have even stuck it to a cereal box and made it yourself; I tried and failed, so resorted to sheet steel instead. Although this blog is about the blue and purple functional outputs - sensors and sensor management respectively - you will see that they interlink with all areas of the diagram to provide complete operational capability. The blue and purple outputs are part of the wider domain that is Electro-Magnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO) which Inzpire specialises in and delivers education on through our Electronic Warfare training courses as part of the Inzpire Training Academy.
Building EMSO capability is not just about attending courses - technical understanding must be placed in an operational and environmental context. EMSO concerns a broad range of functional outputs that are considered holistically in an operational context. The Inzpire methodology for examining these outputs is:
We are not sellers of equipment; we are sellers of capability…
You may require a ground-up approach to capability development. In this particular context, we may recommend you begin with our sensors and electronic warfare (EW) courses. These courses will enable you to critically assess sensors and EW systems for suitability of employment within a wide range of defence applications; with due regard of likely future technology advances. These courses are taught in an operational, multi-domain context that is the core of EMSO.
It may be the case that you already have a sound grasp of your platform sensors and wish to further contextualise these in the wider EMSO environment. Our Battlespace Spectrum Management (BSM) course can turn knowledge into capability. BSM aims to understand the doctrine, concepts, techniques, methods, trends and constraints related to BSM with particular regard to frequency planning & apportionment and adherence to national and international spectrum management frameworks.
Perhaps you would like to procure a database, know how to critically assess inputs to database software or even revolutionise your national database infrastructure? Our operational electronic intelligence (ELINT) course provides the ability to critically assess the performance of a wide range of intelligence and database systems for suitability for the operational need.
But wait, there’s more! EMSO does not only incorporate the blues and the purples as outlined here, but also the collectors (green) and analytics (orange). Not only are all of these functional outputs interlinked, but our modular course structure allows us to design the package the elements that best suit your particular need, with a view to providing you with the best possible operational capability - and we will be talking about those in our next blog!

In order to develop a multi-domain, joint electromagnetic spectrum operations capability you must be able to compare the effectiveness of systems, training, tactics and data support
