[Course] Principles of ESM Analysis
Nov. 6-9 | Instructor: Dr. Sue Robertson
This course equips ESM analysts with the information and techniques to determine and optimise the performance of ESM systems. It begins with a description of the electromagnetic environment, specifically what radars “look like” to an ESM system.
Equipment considerations include types of ESM receivers and antenna configurations, sensitivity requirements and parameter measurements. A session on ESM processing includes techniques for Direction of Arrival Measurement, Radar Pulse Deinterleaving and Radar Location Calculations. Methods for determining and visualising ESM Performance analysis are described and ESM testing in the real world is considered in detail with examples from specific geographic areas.
ESM Radar Library construction and Radar identification optimisation are important functions of the ESM system and novel methods for accomplishing these tasks are considered. Some common issues with ESM systems including multi-tracking, over-merging of track, Direction of Arrival errors and Multipath are described and solutions for these common problems are offered.
Mastering the Electromagnetic Spectrum: Insights from EW Experts
At AOC Europe, EW experts gathered to discuss the most significant challenges and potential solutions for achieving multi-domain integration. In this episode, Ken Miller speaks with some of these experts to walk us through the main takeaways from the first day of the conference.
Ken and the guests discuss achieving integration in coalition operations, the role of EMSO in multi-domain operations and the need for consistent and adaptive training in EMSO. Guests include Colonel Jeff Fisher, John Knowles, Brian Hinkley and Marc Magram.
