Principles of Radar Electronic Protection

Course Description

Learn the fundamentals of electronic protection (EP) concepts, or electronic counter-countermeasures, including basic electronic warfare concepts, noise jamming, range/velocity deception, and on-board and off-board angle deception, supported by laboratory demonstrations of noise and digital radio frequency memory (DRFM) generated electronic attack (EA) waveforms.

Explore the methodology for prioritizing EA threats and examples of current threat EA capabilities, conceptual descriptions of more than 50 EP techniques and adaptive array processing and digital beamforming.
