Electronic Warfare Against the New Threat Environment Training Course Description
A new generation of threats has created a significant number of new challenges to Electronic Warfare equipment and tactics. This is a practical, hands-on Electronic Warfare Against the New Threat Environment Training course which covers Spectrum Warfare and current EW approaches, and moves on to discuss the new equipment capabilities and Tactics that are required to meet the new threat challenges. The course covers Spectrum Warfare, including the nature of this newly recognized “battle-space.” Electronic Warfare Against the New Threat Environment Training also covers both legacy and next generation threat radars, digital communication theory and practice, and legacy communication threats, digital RF Memories, new developments in Infrared threats and countermeasures, and modern radar decoys.
• We can adapt this Electronic Warfare Against the New Threat Environment 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 Warfare Against the New Threat Environment Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Electronic Warfare Against the New Threat Environment 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 Warfare Against the New Threat Environment Training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
