The goal of this course is to educate participants in the principles of Electronic Warfare (EW) systems engineering across the electromagnetic spectrum. At the conclusion of this four day course you will have an understanding of the theory behind Electronic Support (ES) systems, Electronic Attacks (EA), and Electronic Protection (EP), and be able to apply it in order to solve modern EW problems. This includes modelling threat system performance, then developing effective sensors and countermeasures against a given threat.
Registration for courses in conjunction with the 54th Annual AOC International Symposium & Convention are handled through our event registration portal. You do not need to attend the symposium & convention to register for this course.

Day 1 | Electronic Support Systems
This module focuses on EW sensors, their components and applications. Antennas for EW systems are discussed, along with ES receivers which leads into a discussion of direction nding. The module concludes with a lesson on probability of intercept and how it aects the performance of EW sensors.
Day 2 | Understanding Electronic Intelligence
This module introduces the principles of ELINT for radar and communications systems, along with the design of ELINT systems. The focus then switches to radar and how a system's design leads to certain performance criteria. This serves as the foundation used to estimate radar performance using ELINT.
Day 3 | Communications EW and Threat Radars
This day is split into two parts, the rst covering communications EW and countermeasures. The remainder of the day then focusses on understanding and estimating threat radar systems in preparation for developing EA techniques and EP measures.
Day 4 | Electronic Attacks and Protection
The last day of the course integrates the students understanding of EW systems and threats to develop eective countermeasures, and then eective protective measures. A design based focus for EA development is used to optimize techniques against a threat, and then students learn to use modelling and simulation to optimize and validate the EA parameters.
