Electronic Warfare ELINT Receivers Training Course – Hands-on
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 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 have 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 lecture 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), 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.
Electronic Warfare ELINT Receivers Training Course – Customize it
- We can adapt this training course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
- If you are familiar with some aspects of this training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
- We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the training around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
- If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
