The Evolution of Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO)

This podcast will take you on a journey throughout time and around the world to meet the inventors, the battles, and the technology that has not only shaped military operations - how we fight - but also how we live. The History of Crows will cover some of the most important discoveries, battles, and events that shaped what we know today as electromagnetic spectrum operations. Episodes that take you deeper into our history will be added periodically.

    In this episode, we continue our look into the world of Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO) through the first large-scale use of radar and Electromagnetic Warfare (EW) in WWII. The episode shares how the began collecting radio transmissions and turning these signals into tactical intelligence. And that’s where we begin today, at Bletchley Park, the home of Britain’s top-secret code breakers. The episode also covers the important role that EW played in the Battle of Hamburg and Berlin and how it paved the way for Allied Forces on D-Day.

    In today’s story, radar has been developed and we venture back to WWII to see the first large-scale use of Electromagnetic Warfare (EW). Electromagnetic spectrum operations (EMSO) has played an important role in military operations since the dawn of the electronics age. Radar historian, Dr. Phil Judkins, University of Leeds, U.K. shares with us the untold stories of EW and EMSO in WWII, starting with the Battle of Britainーthe first time that a battle between two nations was fought entirely in the air. Dr. Judkins then walks us through The Beam Wars and the increasingly accurate use of radio air navigation systems that helped the British defeat the German air power. Finally, we cover the Blitz, a German bombing campaign against the United Kingdom, and show how the advanced radar tactics employed by the British helped to win the Battle and defeat the German’s attacks.

    The Echo

    The Echo

    The story of electromagnetic spectrum operations (EMSO) continues with the birth of radar. With wireless communications paving the way, these technologies led to the early use of electromagnetic warfare from World War I through the US entering World War II, following the attack on Pearl Harbor. In this episode, Mr. Ray Chase from the Information Age Learning Center and Mr. Mike Simmons from the National Electronics Museum share the story about early radar development and electromagnetic warfare in the early 20th Century. Since the dawn of the Electronic Age and the years following World War I, new advances came from Marconi’s invention of wireless communications. Radio jamming, direction-finding stations and air-to-ground communications displayed major advantages for reconnaissance. But as we find out in today’s story, these advances would come to serve an even greater purpose in the Second World War.

    Sparks Across the Atlantic

    The story of electromagnetic spectrum operations (EMSO) continues with the discovery of wireless telegraphy and how it forever changed the global landscape. In this episode, we trace the life of Guglielmo Marconi through his dreams and determination as a young engineer who believed the experiments of Heinrich Hertz could change the world, to the shrewd businessman who ushered us into the Dawn of the Electronic Age. From experiments at home in Italy to helping nations communicate wirelessly across the Atlantic Ocean, Marconi helped the world become globally interconnected in a way that many thought impossible at the turn of the 20th Century.

    A New Epoch

    A New Epoch

    Electromagnetic energy is a fundamental part of our universe. Humans discovered ways to use this energy for many purposes. From radio to TV, smartphones to Wifi. But electromagnetic energy also influenced another major sector: military operations. Along came the Crows, people who learned electromagnetic energy, applied it to military combat operations, and forever impacted modern warfare. Today, we begin the story of how the greatest scientific minds came to understand this natural phenomenon, how it changed the way we think, live and communicate, and how now electromagnetic spectrum operations, or EMSO, have influenced every major military campaign over the past 100 years.

    This episode takes you to the scientific roots of EMSO. We hear insights from Mr. Charles “Chuck” Quintero from the Johns Hopkins University of Applied Physics Laboratory, who discusses the evolution of natural philosophy from Sir Isaac Newton to James Clerk Maxwell to Heinrich Hertz. He tells the stories behind the great minds of scientists, physicists, and mathematicians and how they contributed to Maxwell’s theories on electromagnetism and the impact it later had on the world of EMSO.
