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> 12/10/2018 11:41:22 AM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1159506 REGISTRATION IS OPEN for EW Asia, January 29-30, Singapore https://asia-decs.com/ <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=61348>December 12, 2018</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p>The 3rd edition of AOC EW Asia will examine technological and conceptual means of ensuring success for regional nations and allies across the spectrum of operational activity.

The webinar will then focus on the primary forms of Electronic Attack (EA) that create angular errors, such as amplitude modulation, cross-eye jamming, and cross-polarization jamming.
