Radar Electronic Protection and Digital RF Memories

June 6, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 1:30 pm

Presenter:  Mr. Dave Adamy

Description:  This course covers Radar Electronic Protection techniques used in modern threat radars — focusing on their impact upon the way we intercept and jam those radars. It starts with a discussion of the one-way communication link (including how to use the slide rule, which will be provided) and then reviews important jamming techniques and waveforms. The class discusses the capabilities of new generation threat radars, including pulse Doppler and pulse compression radar signal processing. To keep the class unclassified, the techniques will be discussed technically – not related to specific threat radars except as discussed in open literature.

The final part of the course covers the basic DRFM function, key technology issues and DRFM applications in EW systems. The main thrust of this segment is the way DRFMs enable the jamming of important types of modern RADARs –particularly those with chirp, Barker code, detailed radar cross section analysis capabilities and various other electronic protection capabilities.


Presenter Bio:  Mr. Adamy has over 50 years’ experience developing EW systems from DC to Light deployed on platforms from submarines to space with specifications from QRC to high reliability.

For the last 30 years, he has run his own company performing studies for the U.S. Government and defense contractors.  He has also presented dozens of courses in the U.S. and allied countries on EW and related subjects. He has published over 250 professional articles on EW, receiver system design and closely related subjects including the popular EW101 column in the Journal of Electronic Defense. He holds an MSEE (Communication theory) and has 16 books in print.
