Radio tuner. The U.S. military uses radio spectrum for communications, radar, telemetry and other activities, and although the U.S. government can manage electromagnetic spectrum domestically, the country relies on international treaties and policies to ensure that American forces can access spectrum worldwide. Wingo was instrumental in advocating for U.S. positions at the International Telecommunication Union's World Radiocommunication Conference. Her coalition building, technical work and advocacy helped advanced the Navy's spectrum policy goals and bring about a positive outcome for the U.S., including the protection of spectrum used to access satellite services.
