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
