What's EW

The exploitation of the EM spectrum for attack, Surveilence or defence

1

Do scribe the EW tree

EW
Offensive/defensive
ES/EA/ED

2

Electronic Surveilence

Search
Intercept
DF
Analysis

3

Electronic attack

Jamming
Deception
Neutralisation (direct energy warfare)

4

Types of jamming

Spot-all power on 1 freq
Barrage-all power over all freqs
Sweep-changes freq
Responsive-listens to freq spectrum the jams when a TX is made

5

Types of deception

Imitative-entering thee emus network as a legitimate user

Manipulative-deliberate release of information through own emissions

Stimulative-simulate emissions in false locations

6

Types of electronic surveillance

Search-searching through the EM spectrum to find possible active target signals of interest (SOI)

Intercept-process of accurately manipulating a signal to gain information

DF-used to locate spires of
transmission (LOB/cut/fix)

Analysis- possible info gained

7

If you're being jammed

Carry on TXing
Tell YoS
Never admit to being jammed
Pass back over secure by different means (PACE)

8

Neutralisation

Deliberate use of electromagnetic energy to temporarily/perminatly damage enemy devices which rely on EMS

9

Electronic defence

Active technical-use of active processes to eliminate the chance of interception like freq hopping

Active tactical-use of friendly freqs towards the enemy in a false manor allowing comms to go through unnoticed

Passive tactical-natural shields
Passive technical-direction radiation
Passive training-training
