COURSE # ROO-482
INTRODUCTION TO COMMUNICATION ELECTRONIC WARFARE (EW) SYSTEMS
... offers an introduction to the requirements, concepts, techniques and countermeasures - the bastion of a modern electronic battlefield ...
Timely, reliable secure mobile communications are the cornerstone of a modern battlefield. Whether in desert warfare or urban disturbance, reliance on communications could not be greater. General recognition of mobile communications importance can be seen in DoD programs such as FCS and JTRS.
This course, presented by the author of the course textbook, offers an introduction to countermeasures - a bastion of the modern battlefield. Requirements and physical concepts, performance, mobility and cost are balanced to yield optimal solutions. Stand-alone and cooperative systems, including UAVs, are a part of this forward-looking class.
Applications and benefits:
You will benefit by enhancing your understanding of the :
- Existing and evolving requirements for C3, C4I countermeasures.
- Engineering concepts in modern electronic warfare.
- Components, technologies and systems.
- EW strategies and effectiveness.
Who should attend:
This course covers the engineering principles employed in modern C3 and C4I countermeasure systems and their deployment. The vast information covered serves as an invaluable resource to all who are a part of the EW and/or communication community, and that use or rely on C4I systems. As such, it will benefit military personnel, managers, engineers, analysts and system designers working or associated with the field of defense communications and EW.
The course is best suited for those with a prior college-level, technical background in telecommunications, or an equivalent experience.
