ELA-005
Electronic warfare - 2022

Receivers for electronic warfare and electronic counter measures

OBJECTIVE :

The purpose of this course is that trainees understand the conception, behavior and performances of EW receivers.

COURSE DURATION AND TIMETABLE :

The course lasts 5 days (30 hours).

More than 20 % of the time is dedicated to applications examples.

GENERAL APPROACH :

This course lets you understand concepts central to EW. It is shared in 3 tutorials on:

  • Basic principles
  • Measure and Counter Measures Receivers
  • Information Processing

It delivers a basic working knowledge of the concepts and the techniques deployed in today and near future EW systems.

PREREQUISITE :

Level: Basic/Improvement

The course is dedicated to engineers with a basic knowledge of analog and digital signal processing. It is required to have some knowledge of conventional receiving techniques.

COURSE DIRECTOR(S) :

Jean-François GRANDIN:

THALES AIRBORNE SYSTEMS Technical Directorate Electronic Warfare Systems Information Processing Expert.
