Modern Electronic Warfare is made up of 3 vital components. Electronic Attack (EA), Electronic Support (ES), and Electronic Protection (EP). This 3-part series discusses in detail the intricacies of each “pillar” in the EW enterprise.
In most military disciplines, the terms “attack,” “support,” and “protect” are usually platform-centric. In US doctrine, EW is unique in that these terms apply to Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS) access – rather than looking at them from a platform-centric perspective.
This second session in the 3-part series covers the importance of Electronic Support. The terms Electronic Support (ES) or Electronic Support Measures (ESM) describe the division of electronic warfare involving actions taken under direct control of an operational commander to detect, intercept, identify, locate, record, and/or analyze sources of radiated electromagnetic energy for the purposes of immediate threat recognition or longer-term operational planning. Thus, Electronic Support provides a source of information required for decisions involving Electronic Protection (EP), Electronic Attack (EA), avoidance, targeting, and other tactical employment of forces. This Webinar will cover basic ES principles to include: ES System Components; Signal Processing; Direction Finding Techniques; GEO Location Techniques; Factors that impact ES; and ES Collection and Data Bases.
Be sure to register for Parts 1 and 3 covering Electronic Attack (EA) and Electronic Protection (EP), respectively.
