Future warfare with peer adversaries will be largely about exploiting the electromagnetic spectrum, and the Electronic Systems unit of BAE Systems is the dominant player in that mission area. Headquartered in Nashua, New Hampshire, Electronic Systems has spent six decades figuring out how to defeat enemy sensors and communications, thereby enabling U.S. warfighters to operate successfully in the fog of war. Because of the innovations BAE has pioneered, America’s soldiers, sailors and airmen have far greater situational awareness than any adversary, and can use that awareness to not just survive but prevail under very trying wartime circumstances. Electronic Systems works hard to stay below the radar screen even though it is the biggest employer in New Hampshire, but the more you know about what the unit does, the more clear it becomes that Nashua could be the nerve center of America’s next war. I have written a commentary for Forbes here.
