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.
