21st Century Electronic Warfare, Systems, Technology, and Techniques (On-Demand Course)

21st Century Electronic Warfare, Systems, Technology, and Techniques (On-Demand Course)

Course Length: 32 hours total - delivered across 8 sessions of 4-hours each.

  • PLEASE NOTE: This course will be delivered through Adobe Connect. Each session will be recorded and made available to all registrants for 30 days after the course. If you miss a session or two, you can catch up by viewing the recording! To ensure your computer system has access to Adobe Connect, please test your system HERE.


This course offers a comprehensive overview of modern electronic (EW) warfare systems, technology, and techniques. The domains of electronic attack, electronic support, and electronic protection will all be explored. We will explore various relevant technologies and how these can be integrated into effective EW systems and how those systems can impact operational effectiveness.

Course Delivery

There is a downloadable course syllabus provided for each session. It contains copies of all visual aids and problem worksheets for that session. It will be available for download in the meeting room.

Each session was presented LIVE by an actively engaged instructor. The virtual classroom allowed learners to “raise a hand,” ask questions audibly or type them in the chat, and the instructor responded in real-time. It’s just like sitting in the classroom.

These "Live Educational Courses" presented by AOC are recorded when broadcast live and are subsequently made available to registrants for 30 days in our "On-Demand Educational Courses" catalog.

You can now benefit from this course catalog with your purchase.

Who Should Attend

This course has been designed for staff who need a comprehensive overview of EW. There are no specific prerequisites, and mathematics in the course is kept to a minimum. The course should be useful for line engineers who are working on a small technical piece of EW and need a bigger picture and for other staff such as business development personnel who need a broad overview of the subject.
