This two-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.
