COMINT electronic warfare

Monitoring, locating and disabling telecommunications


This course aims to outline the fundamental concepts of COMINT Electronic Warfare or COMINT EW.

The three main areas of COMINT EW are covered:

  • Identifying and listening to signals
  • The direction of arrival, then the location
  • The jamming of communication signals.


The course lasts 3 days (18 hours).

Examples of applications are given throughout the course.


Without entering into the theory of signaling and information, this course aims to outline the basic principles of COMINT EW, the associated techniques and the information that it can provide.

The course first outlines the history of COMINT EW and covers the basics of telecommunication systems and their impact on the principles of COMINT EW.

These three areas of COMINT EW are then presented through multiple examples. Future concepts are also addressed in each of the areas.


Course level: Basic/Advanced

Course for engineers who know the basics of signal processing and telecommunications.
