Overview

Airborne EW System Integration

Course Description

This three-day course covers one of the most challenging problems faced by the electronic-warfare (EW) community: the integration of various electronic warfare systems, such as radar warning receivers, jammers, decoys, missile warning sensors, and other aircraft avionics systems. You'll begin with an overview of computers, sensors, and networks existing in everyday life as a foundation to system integration. Next, the coursework transitions into understandable integration concepts, airborne integration approaches, and lessons learned. It also links together various disciplines in EW and provides a template useful for engineers working legacy EW system integration programs.
