Electronic Warfare Against the New Threat Environment

Share |


Technical Training Short On Site Course Quote

A new generation of threats has created a significant number of new challenges to Electronic Warfare equipment and tactics. This is a practical, hands-on course which covers Spectrum Warfare and current EW approaches, and moves on to discuss the new equipment capabilities and Tactics that are required to meet the new threat challenges.

The course covers Spectrum Warfare, including the nature of this newly recognized "battle-space." It also covers both legacy and next generation threat radars, digital communication theory and practice, and legacy communication threats, digital RF Memories, new developments in Infrared threats and countermeasures, and modern radar decoys.

Each section of the course includes lecture, discussion and practical in-class problems.

The new text book, E W, Against a New Generation of Threats (Artech House 2015) is included with the course.



Dave Adamy has over 50 years experience developing EW systems from DC to Light, deployed on platforms from submarines to space, with specifications from QRC to high reliability. For the last 30 years, he has run his own company, performing studies for the US Government and defense contractors. He has also presented dozens of courses in the US and allied countries on Electronic Warfare and related subjects He has published over 250 professional articles on Electronic Warfare, receiver system design and closely related subjects, including the popular EW101 column in the Journal of Electronic Defense. He holds an MSEE (Communication theory) and has 16 books in print.
