EW in Space
Aug. 17 | 2 p.m. ET
This webinar covers intercept and jamming of hostile radars and communications from space and the vulnerability of satellite links to jamming and intercept from the ground. First there is a light coverage of Earth satellite orbit mechanics with just enough depth to support the EW calculations. This includes an overview of the spherical trigonometry involved, orbit relationships and radio propagation in space. Then, it discusses the calculation of intercept quality and jamming-to-signal-ratio in the space environment. Finally, it introduces the ways that satellite links protect themselves from hostile intercept and jamming.

[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.
