Engineers learn the latest electronic warfare (EW) techniques and technologies related to on-board military platforms with this authoritative resource. Practitioners gain expert design guidance on technologies and equipment used to detect and identify emitter threats, giving them an advantage in the never-ending chess game between sensor guided weapons and EW systems. This unique book offers deeper insight into EW systems principles of operation and their mathematical descriptions, arming professionals with better knowledge for their specific design applications. Moreover, readers get practical information on how to counter modern communications data links which provide connectivity and command flow among the armed forces in the battlefield. Taking a sufficiently broad perspective, this comprehensive volume offers a panoramic view of the various physical domains - RF, Infrared, and electronics - that are present in modern electronic warfare systems.
