(Jamming Course)

The course introduces Radar and EO jamming methods as part of ECM employed within Electronic Warfare.


Course Overview

Core theory consisting of revision and overview, types of jammers, jamming techniques overview, jamming search radar electronic range and angle noise. Jamming search radar electronic deception – false target(s) and jamming search radar – use of chaff.

Electronic jamming tracking radars – range gates and use of range gate deception for angle gate success. Electronic jamming tracking radars angle gates, jamming sequences and ECM discussion points. Finally, EO in ECM and EPM is also covered to include flares, IR jamming, IR camouflage and Missiles.
