Airborne EW System Integration

Course Description

This three-day course covers the integration of various electronic warfare systems (radar warning receivers, jammers, decoys, missile warning sensors, other aircraft avionics systems), which is one of the most challenging problems faced by the EW community. It begins with an overview of computers, sensors and networks existing in everyday life and transitions easily understandable concepts to airborne integration approaches and lessons learned. The course also provides linkage between varying disciplines in EW and provides a template useful for engineers working legacy EW system integration.
