An Overview of IADS (Integrated Air Defense Systems)

January 14, 2021 | 14:00 - 15:00 EST (19:00 - 20:00 UTC)

This one-hour webinar delivers an overview of Integrated Air Defense Systems (IADS). We will look at the evolution of IADS from WWII through the Vietnamese War to current times. We will spend some time on the North Vietnamese IADS and the US reaction to it since many of the key EW technologies were developed during this engagement. We will also look at the individual components of the IADS, early warning/ground control intercept (EW/GCI) radar network, command and control (C2) systems, communications networks, airborne interceptors (AI), surface to air missiles (SAM), and anti-aircraft artillery (AAA). We will also consider the overall architecture of the IADS.

What you will learn:

  • Role of the IADS in the modern military and how to estimate its effectiveness.
  • Theory and operations of command, control and communications (C3) systems.
  • The history and evolution of the IADS.
  • Operational reactions to modern IADS.
