SIGINT in the Electromagnetic Spectrum

Thursday, August 9, 2018 14:00 until 15:00 EST



Being prepared for military conflict or defending against terrorist attack relies primarily on signals intelligence or ‘SIGINT’. Today, SIGINT provides the foundation for all intelligence assessment. This webinar will focus on the technical collection of intelligence from the electromagnetic spectrum under the headings of communications intelligence (‘COMINT’) and electronic intelligence (‘ELINT’). An overview will be provided to SIGINT collection methods used on the ground, in the air, in maritime and overhead (satellite). Additionally, we will look at the technologies involved, particularly at receiver technology and signals processing. A brief look at Russian and Chinese capability will demonstrate that SIGINT is now a world-wide capability. The webinar will conclude with a introduction to how SIGINT in the EM spectrum is now at the forefront of combating terrorism. 


David Stupples is Professor of Electronic and Radio Systems at City, University of London and Director of Electronic Warfare Systems Research. He is a scientific advisor to the UK Intelligence Services on both Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) and Cyber Intelligence. He began his working career in the Royal Air Force concentrating on Electronic Warfare. He moved to research and development at the Royal Radar Establishment (RRE and later RSRE) Malvern, then to Hughes Aircraft Corporation in California, and then to NATO research at SHAPE. He specializes in ELINT and COMINT employed on both airborne and satellite platforms.
