Tactical Battlefield Communications - Electronic WarfareWhen: December 11 - 12, 2020 | Friday & Saturday | 09:00-17:00 EST
Where: Walter E. Washington Convention Center - Room TBD

This course is held on-site for two days prior to 57th Annual AOC International Symposium & Convention, held December 8-10, 2020 in Washington, DC. Registration for that event does not constitute registration for this course, nor are there any connected costs or discounts.
This course covers techniques for setting up intercept and jamming links for Electronic Warfare (EW) against ground to ground enemy communication signals, UAV command and data links, cell phone links and weapon control links (including IEDs). It starts with a discussion of the one-way communication link, then covers the important propagation modes for communication band EW, modern signal modulations, and the techniques for predicting intercept and jamming performance as a function of the tactical geometry and local terrain. Finally, it provides step by step procedures for setting up intercept and jamming links against enemy tactical communications. All skills taught are reinforced by carefully structured hands-on in-class problems.
Who Should Attend
Technical, Operational or Management EW professionals who need to understand radio communication, intercept, and jamming concepts and practice. There are no prerequisites; no math beyond algebra will be required and all concepts are described in physical rather than mathematical terms. Yet, you will finish this course able to calculate requirements for communication, intercept, and jamming in realistic military situations.
