STORY OF THE WEEK: What Every EW Professional Needs to Know Today in a new course - Applied 21st Century Electronic Warfare
Intended for professionals in operations, support and training directly responsible for execution of electronic warfare missions, this course is intended to re-baseline operational knowledge and reinforce operational context for personnel in or close to the fight. Although some common body of knowledge fundamentals are briefly addressed, this course leans toward a more advanced discussion of applications, capabilities and processes relevant to conducting and sustaining EMS warfare operations.
Be one of the first to take this brand new course, January 18-21, in Westlake Village, CA.
