Users of it must be familiar with unified land operations doctrine established in ADP 3-0, the operations process established in ADP 5-0, and EW doctrine described in ATP 3-13.10. The principle audience for it is Army commanders and staffs at all echelons. Commanders, staffs, and subordinates ensure their decisions and actions comply with applicable U.S., international, and, in some cases, host-nation laws and regulations. Commanders at all levels ensure their Soldiers operate in accordance with the law of war and the rules of engagement FM 27-10. It provides an overview of electronic warfare and the conceptual foundation that leaders require to understand the electromagnetic environment and its impact on Army operations. It first discusses operational environments. Then it discusses the three divisions of electronic warfare. It also discusses the electronic warfare activities and terms.
