Professional Education Course
Advanced RF Electronic Warfare Principles
Important Course Information
This is a classified course. See Security Requirements section below for details.
Review advances in radio frequency sensors of threat weapon systems, focusing on radar systems advances that degrade the effectiveness of traditional jamming techniques. Explore new electronic attack technologies that have application against each threat advance. Start at the conceptual level before proceeding to more detailed and useful treatments.
Who Should Attend
- Technical personnel involved with electronic warfare or radar system design/operations
- Engineers and managers in the specification, procurement, design and development, testing, and operation of electronic attack systems
How You Will Benefit
- Learn critical details of major threat radar controlled weapon systems advances
- Assess effects of radar system advances on electronic warfare technique effectiveness
- Examine how advanced electronic attack techniques operate, performance is measured, degrade advanced radar capabilities, and limit advanced capabilities
- Explore how advanced electronic warfare receivers function in the complex radio frequency environment
- Describe advances in and the direction of integrated sensor systems
- Learn how to trade-off radar cross section reduction with enhanced electronic attack capabilities
- Learn the structure of threat weapon systems and associated vulnerabilities
