This four-day course builds on the information in Fundamentals of EW (or equivalent) courses. The principles learned in the fundamentals course will be applied to more complex practical problems, and the theoretical underpinnings of fundamental EW concepts and techniques will be developed. Special interest will be given to advanced types of radar and communication threats and resources available to EW professionals: the range of textbooks and authors, periodicals, journals, organizations, etc.
This course is intended for those who have completed a basic Electronic Warfare course or have equivalent knowledge from previous education or work experience in the field. This course, unlike the fundamentals course, uses a moderate amount of engineering mathematics. Each student will receive instructor's texts Electronic Warfare 101 and Electronic Warfare 102 and a full set of course notes.
David Adamy holds BSEE and MSEE degrees, both with communication theory majors. He has over 40 years experience as an engineer and manager in the development of electronic warfare and related systems. He has published over 140 articles on electronic warfare and communications theory related subjects, including a popular monthly tutorial section in the Journal of Electronic Defense. He has ten books in print. He consults to various military organizations and teaches electronic warfare and communication theory short courses all over the world.

What You Will Learn:
- Theoretical basis for important EW concepts and techniques
- Relationship between electronic and information warfare and top level strategies for the application of EW (vs. just tactical approaches)
- How to perform Communication intercept and jamming performance prediction using line of sight, two-ray, and knife edge diffraction propagation models

- Directed energy weapons and stealth
- Electronic warfare and information warfare: operational interrelationships between the various subfields; basic strategies for EA, ES and EP in modern warfare
Radio propagation models
- Receiver system design: advantages/disadvantages of various receiver types, dynamic range/sensitivity trade-offs, Digital receiver system design tradeoffs
- Advanced radar threat: Phased array radars, SAR & ISAR, ES challenges, EP challenges
- Low probability of intercept signals
- ES: Modern signal processing challenges; ES against LPI signals
- Modern EA architectures
- EA against modern radar systems
- EA against LPI signals
- Expendables and Decoy Systems
- Directed Energy Weapons
- Stealth: Stealth technology; EW vs. stealth
