Demystifying Radar and Jammer Range Equations - Part 2
Thursday, December 13, 2018 14:00 until 15:00 EST
In a break with tradition, the previous webinar on this topic dealt with the
mathematical origins of the range equations. But rest assured, normal service will
now be resumed with this webinar focusing on the real-world implications of these
The range equations are at the heart of a wide range of important EW topics such as
the need for coherent jammers (e.g. DRFMs), why RWRs can be effective with
surprisingly poor sensitivity, the meaning of burn-through range, some of the reasons
stealth is so expensive, how LPI/LPD operation is achieved, and why radars tend to
have more powerful transmitters than jammers. Each of these topics will be explored
to demonstrate the significance and practical value of the range equations.
It will be assumed that attendees are familiar with the range equations and their
origin, so attendees are advised to watch the first webinar in this series before this
Warren du Plessis received the B.Eng.(Electronic) and M.Eng.(Electronic) and
Ph.D.(Engineering) degrees from the University of Pretoria in 1998, 2003 and 2010
respectively, winning numerous academic awards including the prestigious
Vice-Chancellor and Principal's Medal. He has been working in EW and radar since 2006
and is currently an Associate Professor at the University of Pretoria. Warren is a
Senior Member of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), a
Lifetime Member of the Association of Old Crows (AOC), and a member of the AOC
Aardvark Roost Board. He is author of 51 published and accepted peer-reviewed journal
and conference papers, and is lead or sole author of 32 of these, demonstrating the
leading role he plays in developing and evaluating innovative new concepts. While his
primary research focus has been cross-eye jamming, Warren has also published on issues
such as data reduction, cognitive EW, and possible approaches to enhancing EW
