This webinar is intended for an audience that wants to gain additional knowledge about tactical electronic support measures (ESM) technology and procedures. We will discuss Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) including its two components Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) and Communications Intelligence (COMINT). We will present applications of ELINT. We’ll discuss SIGINT platforms including aircraft, spacecraft, and ships. The ESM search challenge along with the probability of intercept will be examined. Typical emitter characteristics that ESM system can measure for pulse radar will be enumerated. We will discuss the use of ESM against low probability of intercept signals. The final major topic is passive emitter location techniques specifically direction of arrival measurement approaches.
