Nikkei wrote that the Defense Ministry plans to deploy seven new SDF units specializing in electronic warfare in addition to the one already established in Hokkaido. Three of them will be set up on the Amami Islands in Kagoshima and the main island of Okinawa in FY2021. The headquarters of the electronic warfare units will be established at GSDF Camp Asaka in Saitama. After his meeting with USFJ Commander Schneider at Yokota AB on Thursday, Defense Minister Kishi visited Camp Asaka and told the press afterward: “We will be able to establish supremacy in warfare by neutralizing the enemy’s use of electromagnetic waves.” Similar units will be set up in three other locations, including two in Kyushu.
