The NATO Electronic Warfare Advisory Committee (NEWAC) is responsible for overseeing the development of NATO's EW policy, doctrine, and command and control concepts as well as monitoring EW support to NATO operations. It also assists in introducing NATO's EW concepts to partner countries within the framework of the Partnership for Peace programme.
The NEWAC is composed of representatives of each NATO country and of the Strategic Commands. Members are senior officials in national electronic warfare organisations. The Chairman and the Secretary of the committee are permanently assigned to the International Military Staff at NATO Headquarters, Brussels. There are a number of subordinate groups dealing with electronic warfare database support, training and doctrine.
