For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the Army is updating its manual for the electronic battlefield.
The new 112-page Army doctrine on electronic warfare, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, was produced at Fort Leavenworth and will be released Thursday at an Army conference in Florida.
The doctrine is aimed at guiding the Army as it moves to protect soldiers against roadside bombs and other nontraditional warfare used by increasingly sophisticated insurgents.
The report suggests that without new training, U.S. forces may be at a deadly disadvantage.
