With a Review of Core Radar Concepts

ELINT Interception and Analysis course

Share |


Technical Training Short On Site Course Quote

Following a thorough introduction to core radar concepts, this four-day course course will address key radar parameters used for ELINT, the types of receiver systems used for ELINT collection, emitter locating techniques, basic signal analysis techniques/methods, and the baseline statistics required to properly categorize and log emitters into database systems. Practical exercises will illustrate the principles involved. The four-day course is ideal for those that are working or new in ELINT (be they an analyst or a program manager), as well as those in need of a concise ELINT refresher course. This means that Introduction to Intelligence is valuable to managers, engineers and scientists alike, whether just beginning their careers or well into their work in the ELINT field. A comprehensive set of notes and references will be provided to all attendees

What You Will Learn:

  • Radar concepts and theory that form the foundation for ELINT analysis.
  • Fundamentals of ELINT receivers, emitter locating techniques, and signal analysis.
  • How ELINT uses observable parameters to categorize, identify, and assess radar capabilities.
Course Outline:

1. Core Radar Concepts. Radar types, radio frequency (RF) generation, RF propagation, lineof- site (LOS) impacts, inter-and intrapulse modulation techniques, radar modes, scan types, active electronically scanned arrays (AESA), multifunction radar systems, non-monostatic (bi/multistatic) radar systems, networked radar, low-probability of intercept (LPI) radar, radar cross section (RCS), radar displays, radar equation.

2. ELINT Receiver Technologies. Comparison of major receiver features, receiver type versus signal type, qualitative comparison of receiver types, crystal video receivers, superheterodyne receivers, instantaneous frequency measurement (IFM) receivers, channelized and Bragg cell receivers, microscan receivers, software defined radio receivers, ELINT intercept geometry considerations, probability of intercept, one way link equation.

3. Emitter Locating Techniques. Angle of arrival accuracy requirements, triangulation, time difference of arrival (TDOA), frequency difference of arrival (FDOA), interferometry, antenna designs.

4. Core ELINT Analytics. RF analysis, pulse train analysis, pulse shape analysis, scan analysis, power analysis, polarization analysis, beam shape analysis.

5. Basic Statistics for ELINT. Mean, median, average, standard deviation, histograms.

6. ELINT Database Concepts. Development constraints, data file ambiguity analysis.
