Real-Time Radio Frequency Interference Mitigation

Course Description

RF interference, ranging from subtle distortion to intentional jamming, is a major problem for the US Government, both CONUS and abroad. Developed by world-renowned experts from GTRI and our industry-leading partners, this course offers an unparalleled deep dive into the latest mitigation strategies and techniques. While the course focus is on dynamic tactical real-time interference mitigation in contested environments, the principles and techniques are applicable to advancement of civil systems.
