RF Challenges in the Modern EW Battlespace

Understanding core attributes of RF operating bands is critical to both the EW system designer and the tactical operator. This webinar will provide attendees with an overview of the RF spectrum, highlighting the pros and cons of various frequency bands and the commensurate design and operational tradeoffs that must be made to maximize EW effectiveness.

Dr. Pat Ford has spent over four decades supporting EW, including systems engineering, research, development, ground/in-flight testing, training, and extensive tactical EW experience on surface, subsurface, and airborne platforms. He has presented EW and aerospace training courses around the globe, including both professional seminars and graduate level courses. He serves as an EW science adviser for the U.S. Navy, and is also a certificated Advanced Ground Instructor, private pilot, and commercial UAS remote pilot. Pat received his Ph.D. in Applied Management and Decision Sciences from Walden University, with a Specialization in Naval Warfare Operations Analysis, where his research culminated in the first ever use of a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) radar on a Group 3 or smaller UAS. He received his Master of Science degree in Space Studies from the University of North Dakota, with a focus on human factors related to long-duration spaceflight missions. A retired U.S. Naval Reserve cryptologic officer, he is one of the few individuals to graduate from both the National Intelligence University Post Graduate Intelligence Program and the Middle Enlisted Cryptologic Career Advancement Program.
