Electronic Warfare ELINT Receivers Training
Electronic Warfare ELINT Receivers Training Course Description
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 acquision 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.
• EW/ELINT receiver techniques and technologies
• Digital receiver and Signal Processing Techniques
• Receiver sensitivity and dynamic range calculations
• Emitter location techniques
• Operational evaluation of various types of receivers
• Effective Range calculation, in both blue water and over land situations
With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
