This comprehensive engineering-level resource provides you with an excellent introduction to electronic warfare (EW) for communication systems. Extensively referenced with over 600 equations, it details the components, systems, and operations of electronic warfare systems dedicated to protecting and attacking military communications networks. You are provided with a complete understanding of how modern direction finders for communication signals work, along with their limitations.
The book also helps you acquire a working knowledge of
hyperbolic emitter location technologies, and shows you how to measure
performance, defining the basic operations necessary for communication EW
systems. You are provided with a technique for geolocation of low probability
of intercept/anti-jam targets. Use this book to identify state-of-the-art EW
technology, understand basic processes that EW systems need to accomplish in
their operations, and gain insight into the future direction of these systems.
