A short course designed to provide defence analysts or military weapons electronic engineers with a foundation in the techniques used in electronic warfare (EW). The material covered will encompass applications to communication systems, radar systems, and electro-optic systems. Read more Read less

The communications element of the course will examine the use of modern signal-processing techniques as applied to the EW aspects of system design. It will review specific ECM/EPM techniques such as spread spectrum, jamming and adaptive antennas and cover their use in connection with typical military communication systems.

The radar and electro-optic elements of the course will examine the use of EW techniques in the suppression of the radar and electro-optic sensors that are used for target detection and weapon guidance.

For this, the principles underlying radar sensors, electro-optic sensors and weapon guidance will be addressed, and then radar elint/ESM and radar and electro-optic ECM/EPM will be discussed.
