This three-day Electronic Warfare ELINT Receivers Training will provide detailed insight into radar Electronic Warfare receivers, including their tactical employment and the evolution of their requirements (driven by threat developments). There will be a significant emphasis on shipboard and submarine operational considerations. Receivers in both defensive warning and payload (ISR intercept) roles will be covered. Hostile Radar will be covered from the EW point of view, particularly the challenges modern radars present to RWR and ISR systems.

This will include radar waveforms (including modern pulse compression and pulse Doppler radars), Early warning and acquisition systems and modern (double-digit SAM) will be covered at the system and functional level. Note that there are also significant communication signal aspects in both ISR and situation awareness roles. This is a practical, hands-on course in the design, evaluation, and application of Electronic Warfare receiver systems. There are 12 course modules; each includes lectures and carefully structured in-class problems. The course starts with an introduction to the types of radio links important to EW and a review of dB equations. It moves on to describe important EW signal modulations: radar signals (including modern radars), and communication signals (including all types of low probability of intercept (LPI) signals.

Next, it covers radio propagation formulas (line of sight, 2-ray, knife-edge diffraction, and over water). Then it covers the types of EW receivers, antennas, and other technical aspects of EW receiver systems – including search, emitter location, and man-machine interface. Attendees will learn how to calculate the sensitivity and dynamic range of analog and digital receiver systems. Finally, the course covers Radar Warning receivers and reconnaissance receiver systems (including remote-controlled systems) and systems to intercept and locate hostile LPI emitters.
