COURSE # ROO-580
MODERN ELECTRONIC WARFARE (EW):
FOUNDATIONS, PRINCIPLES AND TECHNIQUES
...a broad, comprehensive presentation of Modern Electronic Warfare Technologies...
In today's combat environment, the effectiveness of a weapon system is predicated on the ability to deceive and negate enemy radar and communications, while resisting jamming from increasingly numerous, powerful and sophisticated emitters.
This introductory course in Electronic Warfare (EW), presented by an internationally recognized EW and RADAR expert, emphasizes a fundamental understanding of EW principles by examining the vulnerability of modern radar and C3 systems in the context of intentional exploitation of such vulnerabilities by Electronic Support (ES) and Electronic Attack (EA) systems.
Applications and benefits:
You will benefit by enhancing your understanding of the:
- Information Warfare concepts and strategy.
- Electronic Warfare strategies and objectives.
- Characteristics of operational EW equipment.
- Fundamental EW principles.
- Effectiveness of EW systems.
Who should attend:
This course is designed for EW Officers, Engineers, Systems Designers, Analysts, and Users who work with Electronic Warfare, Radar, and Command Control and Communications Systems. A working knowledge of radar, communications, EW receivers, or ES systems is helpful; however, sufficient background is developed during the course so that advanced detailed knowledge of these areas is not required. This course may be taken in conjunction with our Advanced EW Course #ROO-581. These two courses are offered contiguously and can be taken either individually or as a five-day long program at a significant cost savings.
