Electronic Warfare - Fundamentals

Course Description

This practical two-day course presented by Mr David Adamy provides insight into the whole electronic-warfare field at the systems and operational level. It covers the basic definitions and technical and operational concepts of electronic warfare to enable students to communicate effectively with professionals in those fields and as a foundation for later higher level courses. It uses little mathematics beyond algebra, yet students will learn to use important propagation and jamming equations in their simple dB forms. All concepts are explained in practical, physical terms.

Target Audience

The course is ideal for engineers expert in one aspect of EW who want to round their EW education, engineers and advanced technicians new to the field, and those who need to understand how their products and subsystems fit into the big picture.
