COURSE # ROO-581
MODERN ELECTRONIC WARFARE (EW): ADVANCED TOPICS
...up-to-date presentation of advanced principles, techniques and tactics in modern Electronic Warfare Systems...
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 intensive, two-day course, presented by an internationally recognized EW and RADAR expert, provides the theoretical and practical backgrounds needed for evaluation, design, and implementation of modern EA and ES systems. The characteristics of advanced radar and missile threats will be delineated, and advanced ES receiving and processing equipment evaluated in the context of advanced techniques employed in monopulse deception, coherent radar jamming, high-ERP generation, tactical support jamming, and stealth technology.
Applications and benefits:
You will benefit by enhancing your understanding of the:
- Advanced EW system architectures.
- Interaction of EW with Information Warfare.
- Stealth principles and techniques.
- Directed energy weapons.
Who should attend:
This intensive two-day course provides the theoretical and practical backgrounds needed to evaluate, design and implement EA and ES systems dealing with advanced EW threats. It has been specially developed to serve as a valuable informational and design resource for EW Officers, Managers, Engineers, and Technical Professionals working in the EW field. Although this course has no prerequisites, a technical degree or equivalent experience, preferably combined with our Introductory EW Course #ROO-580, would be beneficial. These two courses, ROO-580 and ROO-581, are offered contiguously and can be taken individually, or as a five-day long program at a significant cost savings.
