For those about to learn: we salute you!
Our latest offering, ‘The Fundamentals of Air Electronic Warfare (EW)’ course, is open to all individuals who wish to learn about EW.
No other question is more important than "why?" when learning the fundamentals of a complex subject. In common with everything that is done by our EW technology and training team, we’re willing to bet that during this training, the ‘why’ will be pushed further and harder than on any other course you will have attended.
Lightning is an electromagnetic event that is high in power and short in time; but it can affect many broadcast channels, just like some radar systems. Why? The answer lies in the frequency domain - which you can find out more about on our training course.
If we looked rather than listened, then maybe we would understand the electromagnetic environment (EME) a lot better…
The electromagnetic environment is light. It is both what we see and what we cannot see with the naked eye. It is the carrier of information and permeates through all civilian and military domains.
Therefore, without a fundamental understanding of light and its foundation properties, it cannot be exploited by commercial or military entities and any operation or effect against an adversary will be all but useless in the modern world.
For a moment, imagine we are switching everything off and you are conducting mission training just with maps and clocks. Ask yourself when you last did this. Then ask yourself:
There is a belief that you are invisible if you switch everything off. This is the biggest lie sold to defence! So with the potential exception of the first bullet, the answer is to all of those questions is a resounding ‘no’. You cannot be un-seen and you are reliant on the EME to conduct your business. The very fact that you are present in a situation means that you have an effect on the EME; which can either be exploited by you or the enemy. You decide. Enter The Fundamentals of Air Electronic Warfare Course (which will also teach you the difference between kelvins and blackbody emitters, if the above questions were a little confusing!).
Many principles of EW involve taking the congested and contested white light of the electromagnetic environment and splitting it into colourful spectra, to identify signals of interest. However, time is never on your side...
Why this course?
Rather than tell you what is in the curriculum (you can look that up here) let us examine ‘why this course?’
As with all of our electronic warfare training courses, this one has been established because we wanted to deliver it, rather than we needed to deliver it.
From landslide positive feedback on our other offerings, it was clear to us that people wanted an opportunity for individuals to train with us, rather than larger groups as we had historically provided training for.
With due consideration to course design, customer feedback, customer’s time away from their jobs and our own experiences with fundamental theory, we carefully selected core topics that could be delivered within the timeframe of a week. From this, we are proud to offer a course that is suitable for:
Join our electronic warfare experts as we take you on an immersive and engaging journey through the world of EW and the electromagnetic environment!
Easy. We keep asking ‘Why?’!
If you want a course with pretty graphics and not much else, then this is not the course for you. However, if you want a course delivered by highly experienced, dedicated and motivated lecturers who are relentless in answering the question ‘why?’ rather than telling you ‘it just does!’ then you have come to the right place.
Through our blended learning approach, we will demonstrate the building blocks of air EW in an accessible and memorable fashion. We can promise:
If this sounds like the perfect learning option for you, then we’d love to welcome you to the course in January. You can find out more, or signup, via email. Contact our EW tactics technology and training team on [email protected].
