This three-day course addresses the key elements of electronic attack (EA) and electronic protection (EP). This includes EA/ECM principles, philosophies, and strategies; basic radar systems and waveforms; the radar range equation and how to manipulate it to derive basic noise and deception jamming equations; electronic attack techniques and waveform generation; electronic protection techniques; threat system analyses; applications to communication and infra-red countermeasures concepts; and testing and evaluation methods and limitations.

What You Will Learn:

  • ES, EW, and ELINT receiver architectures and techniques
  • Radar range equation, sensitivity, detection, Pd and Pfa
  • Direction finding and location
  • Electronic attack techniques
  • Fundamental ECM principles
  • Basic jamming equations and J/S
