​Brig. Gen. David Gaedecke will be the Air Force’s new electromagnetic spectrum superiority director starting in August, a service spokesman confirmed July 17.

Gaedecke oversaw a yearlong enterprise review of the Air Force’s electronic warfare apparatus in 2018 that ultimately recommended such a position be created. Other main recommendations of the Enterprise Capability Collaboration Team review aimed to consolidate the Air Force’s many disparate spectrum dominance efforts into a single organization, and reinvigorate the “warrior ethos” in the Air Force for electronic warfare, which has atrophied since the service divested its dedicated stand-in electronic-warfare platforms more than 20 years ago.

Gaedecke currently serves as cyberspace operations and warfighter communication director within the Air Force’s headquarters-level intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance office.
