The PTF transmits discrete data, such as signal polarization, and range data, such as RF frequency, to the EDS. The EDS uses this data to determine the emitter. The real-time bandwidth for detection constrains the total system performance and minimizing this bandwidth can be critical to the detection of threats. Implementations of the EDS have difficulty in treating ranged data and implementation can often degrade into linear searches of the entire emitter database.</p> <p><strong>Click <a href="https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1203848&amp;group=">here </a>to register!</strong></p></p> 2/11/2019 2:10:11 PM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1203848&amp;group= INDUSTRY NEWS: The Air Force&rsquo;s JSTARS Alternative Has a New Architect.

Gamers have convinced Pok&eacute;mon Go that they are thousands of miles away in remote locations to collect virtual prizes. - Once the province of highly skilled technologists, GPS signal spoofing is now available to every nation and every consumer. Recent work has shown that it is even relatively simple to spoof multiple GNSS constellations at the same time. This Webinar will explore the development of spoofing technology, provide examples of documented spoofing incidents, and discuss countermeasures that can be taken to help avoid being spoofed.</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Click <a href="https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1142362">here </a>to register!</strong></span></p></p> 10/29/2018 8:16:46 AM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1142362 DON'T MISS PART 2 OF THIS WEBINAR: Demystifying Radar and Jammer Range Equations - Part 2, December 13, 14:00 - 15:00 EST https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1159506 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=61342>October 31, 2018</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p>In a break with tradition, the previous webinar on this topic dealt with the mathematical origins of the range equations. But rest assured, normal service will now be resumed with this webinar focusing on the real-world implications of these results. </p> <p>The range equations are at the heart of a wide range of important EW topics such as the need for coherent jammers (e.g. DRFMs), why RWRs can be effective with surprisingly poor sensitivity, the meaning of burn-through range, some of the reasons stealth is so expensive, how LPI/LPD operation is achieved, and why radars tend to have more powerful transmitters than jammers. Each of these topics will be explored to demonstrate the significance and practical value of the range equations. <br /> It will be assumed that attendees are familiar with the range equations and their origin, so attendees are advised to watch the first webinar in this series before this webinar.</p></p> 10/29/2018 8:16:46 AM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1159506
