Electronic Warfare Training Intermediate Course Description
This two-day Electronic Warfare Training Intermediate builds on the information in Fundamentals of EW (or equivalent) courses. The principles learned in the fundamentals course will be applied to more complex practical problems, and the theoretical underpinnings of fundamental EW concepts and techniques will be developed. Special interest will be given to advanced types of radar and communication threats and resources available to EW professionals: the range of textbooks and authors, periodicals, journals, organizations, etc.
This Electronic Warfare Training Intermediate course is intended for those who have completed a basic Electronic Warfare course or have equivalent knowledge from previous education or work experience in the field. This course, unlike the fundamentals course, uses a moderate amount of engineering mathematics.
Electronic Warfare Training Intermediate – Customize It:
• We can adapt this Electronic Warfare Training Intermediate 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 Training Intermediate course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Electronic Warfare Training Intermediate 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 Training Intermediate course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
