Course Description

 Electronic Warfare is an important force multiplier in today’s modern war theatre and it will be more so in the future. Armed forces employ sophisticated equipment that require effective, efficient and unimpeded use of the Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS), at same time aiming to deny access to, suppress and degrade the use of the same spectrum to enemy forces. In addition to modern, state of the art equipment, this task requires a carefully designed doctrine, an efficient organizational structure, highly skilled and educated technical personnel, and competent and well trained operational units. This course is designed to provide a fundamental body of knowledge to lay the ground for EW doctrine formation, planning and the technical background required for the implementation of EW operations.

Course Objectives

  •  Identifying a taxonomy of EW and concepts for EW Doctrine Development
  •  Familiarizing strategic and tactical level spectrum management concepts in relation to EW
  •  Describing EW databases and the full EW reprogramming cycle
  •  Explaining the importance and principles of modeling and simulation of EW systems
  •  Understanding the principles of radars and communication systems
  •  Gaining a technical background for ESM, ECM and EP for radar systems
  •  Gaining a technical background for ESM, ECM and EP for communication systems

Who Should Attend?

  •  Technical personnel responsible for EW equipment programming and maintenance
  •  Officers employed for EW units
  •  Technical Project Managers involved in EW Projects
  •  Head officers of EW units or EW force structure
