Intermediate Electronic Warfare

When: November 19 - 20, 2020 | Thursday & Friday | 09:00-17:00 BST

Where: Liverpool, UK

This course is held on-site for two days immediately following AOC EW Europe 2020, held November 16 - 18, 2020 in Liverpool, UK. Registration for that event does not constitute registration for this course, nor are there any connected costs or discounts.

Course Length:

16 hours total - delivered across 2 sessions of 8-hours each.



This course is intended for an audience that has some familiarity with electronic warfare (EW) but wants to gain additional depth and breadth in the subject. We will begin with a historical perspective and introduce use of radar, integrated air defense system, early electronic attack (EA) functions and conclude with an overview of modern EA, electronic support (ES), and electronic protection (EP). Next we will address radar systems, electromagnetic waves, including polarization. We will consider antennas, CW radar, Doppler, pulse radar, radar range equation, range resolution, clutter & interference, thermal noise, radar cross section, signal to noise ratio, pulse doppler radar, phased array radar, track while scan radar, synthetic aperture radar, and moving target indicator radar.

Next we will look at communication systems, analog modulation, digital modulation, error correction, line of sight, and BLOS. We will then treat infrared (IR) theory, atmospheric absorption, optical sensors, field of view, low light level TV, sensor resolution, lasers, FLIR, IR image examples, laser range finder, IR search and track, and IR missile guidance.

We will then discuss the EA techniques of noise jamming, spot jamming, barrage jamming, sweep jamming, deception jamming, range gate pull off, inverse gain jamming, velocity gate pull off, terrain bounce jamming, formation jamming, cross polarization jamming, chaff, decoys, self-protection jamming, standoff jamming, escort jamming, and anti-radiation missiles. Next we look at IR countermeasures including aircraft IR air to air missiles, MANPADS, pyrotechnique flares, and directed IR countermeasures. Next we will discuss the second leg in the EW triad, ES including antennas, receiver sensitivity, receivers, SIGINT, COMINT, ELINT, direction finding, deinterleaving, and radar warning receivers. The final section on EP will include emission control, RF diversity, RF agility, pulse compression, variable PRF, spread spectrum, frequency hopping, LPI radar, antenna sidelobe suppression, and low sidelobe antennas.

Who Should Attend

The intended audience for this course includes Electronic Warfare (EW) professionals, including engineers, business development staff, and managers, looking to expand their general knowledge of the field. No prior experience in EW is required, but some background in EW will be helpful.
