Description / Abstract:


a. An SSRA is an assessment performed by program managers (PMs) and materiel developers (MATDEVs), which include concept developers, on all programs that are acquiring, developing, incorporating, or modifying spectrum-dependent (S-D) systems (SDS). Its purpose is to identify and assess an acquisition's potential to affect the required performance of the newly acquired SDS and other existing systems that may co-exist within the operational electromagnetic environment (EME). Each assessment will be accomplished with due consideration given to potential regulatory, technical, and operational spectrum and electromagnetic (EM) environmental effects (E3) issues. All identified risks must be included in the assessment including relevant mitigation information. Requirements for the submission of SSRAs during the Defense Acquisition System (DAS) process, as depicted in Table I, are established by the following:

(1) Department of Defense Instruction (DoDI) 4650.01 which requires the submission of an SSRA prior to each acquisition milestone (MS).

(2) Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Instruction (CJCSI) 6212.01 which requires the submission of SSRAs prior to each acquisition MS and readiness reviews.

(3) DoDI 4630.8 which requires the results of the SSRAs for information technology and national security systems be included in the Information Support Plan (ISP).

Guidance for conducting the tasks outlined in Table I can be found in Department of Defense Directive (DoDD) 3222.3, MIL-HDBK-237, and MIL-HDBK-235-1C and its supplemental parts. Copies of DoD Instructions and Directives are available online at https://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/. CJCSI 6212.01 can be found at www.dau.mil. For copies of the classified and limited distribution parts of MIL-HDBK-235, see the Foreword of MILHDBK- 235-1C.

b. This DID contains the format and content preparation instructions for data resulting from a solicitation for the preparation of an SSRA. It is intended for SDS, including commercial items (CIs) and non-developmental items (NDIs) that are S-D, employed on airborne, sea, space, and ground platforms and systems.

c. SSRAs are required throughout the acquisition process as depicted in Table I. The Military Department (MILDEP) Spectrum Management Office (SMO) and PM/MATDEV should be consulted regarding the application and tailoring of the SSRA, availability of data, and to ensure that all user requirements are met.

d. This DID is related to DI-EMCS-81827.

e. This DID supersedes DI-EMCS-81543
