Electronic Warfare Introduction Training

This two-day Electronic Warfare Introduction Training course presents the depth and breadth of modern Electronic Warfare, covering Ground, Sea, Air and Space applications, with simple, easy-to-grasp intuitive principles. Complex mathematics will be eliminated, while the tradeoffs and complexities of current and advanced EW and ELINT systems will be explored. The fundamental principles will be established first and then the many varied applications will be discussed.

The attendee will leave this Electronic Warfare Introduction course with an understanding of both the principles and the practical applications of current and evolving electronic warfare technology. This course is designed as an introduction for managers and engineers who need an understanding of the basics. It will provide you with the ability to understand and communicate with others working in the field. A detailed set of notes used in the class will be provided. You will also receive a 40 page EW Pocket Guide and an Antenna and Propagation Calculation Slide Rule
