Electronic Protection and Electronic Attack Training Course Description
This three-day Electronic Protection and Electronic Attack Training addresses the key elements of electronic attack (EA) and electronic protection (EP). This includes EA/ECM principles, philosophies, and strategies; basic radar systems and waveforms; the radar range equation and how to manipulate it to derive basic noise and deception jamming equations; electronic attack techniques and waveform generation; electronic protection techniques; threat system analyses; applications to communication and infra-red countermeasures concepts; and testing and evaluation methods and limitations.
• We can adapt this Electronic Protection and Electronic Attack Training course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
• If you are familiar with some aspects of this Electronic Protection and Electronic Attack Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Electronic Protection and Electronic Attack Training course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the Electronic Protection and Electronic Attack Training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
