A new generation of threats has created a significant number of challenges to Electronic Warfare equipment and tactics.  We simply cannot continue doing things the way we have been doing them, with significant success, for decades.  This is a practical, hands-on course which covers Spectrum Warfare and current EW approaches, and moves on to discuss the new equipment capabilities and Tactics that are required to meet the new threat challenges.

  • Spectrum Warfare, including the nature of this newly recognized “battle-space,” Net-centric warfare, cyber warfare,  connectivity issues and link jamming.
  • Legacy radars and associated weapons and performance calculations
  • Next generation threat radars and their impact on EW capabilities
  • Digital communication theory and practice
  • Legacy communication threats and performance calculations
  • Next generation communication threats and their impact on EW operations 
  • Digital RF Memories, 
  • New developments in Infrared threats and countermeasures, 
  • Modern radar decoys.

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

The course is intended for technical or marketing professionals who are new to EW or are concerned with the changes in the threat environment that impact development or operational activities. All of the background math is fully explained in the course.
