Course Details

EW Modeling and Simulation | On-Demand Course

Course Length: 24 hours total - delivered across eight sessions of 3-hours each.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs): 24

Description: This is a practical course in which the basic concepts and techniques of Electronic Warfare modeling and simulation concept evaluation, training, and Test and Evaluation are presented and the students learn how to apply them to practical problems. The class will cover the background math required for M&S (including spherical trig and radio propagation), Electronic Warfare (review only), the mathematical characterization of EW equipment, the modeling of threats, the design of an engagement model, and the emulation of EW signals for injection at any point in the signal path for T&E of hardware or systems.

Who Should Attend: The course is intended for technical or marketing professionals who are concerned with evaluation of EW concepts, system designs, operations or training. All of the background math is fully explained in the course.
