An Effective Approach to Evaluating Electronic Warfare Systems
May 16 | 2 PM ET

There is a growing need for electronic warfare (EW) systems to counter enemy radar systems more consistently with complex & innovative techniques to successfully prevent or deceive threats and improve survivability. However, modern radar systems can detect irregularities in programmed electronic attack (EA) techniques. Ensuring that EW systems can produce these techniques without exploitable irregularities demands thorough and accurate EW test and evaluation methods. Existing methods for waveform evaluation of EW responses can be costly in both time and resources. Further, complex EA techniques require evaluation at a high resolution and fidelity that cannot be easily achieved with common laboratory tools due to tradeoffs between bandwidth and resolution. With high-performance hardware and advanced digital signal processing (DSP), engineers can digitize and process large bandwidths of congested and noisy environments. Implementation of these techniques will help secure electromagnetic dominance and save the lives of countless warfighters. This webinar will discuss methods and applications of advanced waveform analysis that enable quick, accurate and automated characterization of critical parameters of advanced EW systems with the needed resolution for proper evaluation.

Protecting Critical Infrastructure From Electromagnetic Threats

What is an electromagnetic event and how could it wreak havoc on military forces and critical civilian infrastructure? Are we prepared to protect ourselves from such an event? Unfortunately, no. In this area,we are far behind the threat. There is exciting new research underway and progress is being made to develop a standard of protection thanks in large part to the efforts from organizations, such as the Electromagnetic Security Consortium (ESC). In this episode of From the Crow’s Nest, host Ken Miller is joined by David Tilton and Dr. Nathan Hansen of the ESC to discuss their work over the past several years to protect vulnerable systems, buildings, and services from this type of event.

The panel discusses the development of a demonstration facility to show different construction methodologies for protecting buildings from EMP attacks and to show how effective certain solutions are overall. The group also talks about the challenges of interacting with the commercial and private sectors, as well as the consortium’s efforts to launch a workforce development and certification programs to recruit the next generation of EW professionals.

Israel appears to have been blindsided by Hamas’s announcement on Monday that it had agreed to an Egyptian-Qatari ceasefire proposal. But the Israeli government quickly made its position clear – the proposal wasn’t something it would agree to, and, to make matters more explicit, its military forces took control of the Palestinian side of Egypt’s border with Gaza in Rafah.
