17:00 – 20:00
Topic: Tactical Battlefield Communications Electronic Warfare

This course covers techniques for setting up intercept and jamming links for Electronic Warfare (EW) against ground to ground enemy communication signals, UAV command and data links and weapon control links.  It starts with a discussion of the one-way communication link, and then covers the important propagation modes for communication band EW, modern signal modulations, and the techniques for predicting intercept and jamming performance as a function of the tactical geometry and local terrain.  Finally, it provides step by step procedures for setting up intercept and jamming links against enemy tactical communications, UAVs and remotely controlled weapons.
