Introduction to Electronic Warfare Course Description
This two-day Introduction to Electronic Warfare presents the depth and breadth of modern Electronic Warfare, covering Ground, Sea, Air and Space applications, with simple, easy-to-grasp intuitive principles. Complex mathematics will be eliminated, while the tradeoffs and complexities of current and advanced EW and ELINT systems will be explored. The fundamental principles will be established first and then the many varied applications will be discussed.
The attendee will leave this Introduction to Electronic Warfare course with an understanding of both the principles and the practical applications of current and evolving electronic warfare technology. This course is designed as an introduction for managers and engineers who need an understanding of the basics. Introduction to Electronic Warfare will provide you with the ability to understand and communicate with others working in the field.
Introduction to Electronic Warfare – Customize It:
• We can adapt this Introduction to Electronic Warfare course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
• If you are familiar with some aspects of this Introduction to Electronic Warfare course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Introduction to Electronic Warfare 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 Introduction to Electronic Warfare course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
