Course Description

Introduction to Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) is a comprehensive 2-day course that provides the underpinning GEOINT knowledge and practical skills necessary to work with intelligence and ELINT analytics. ELINT intelligence products can support military operational planners and tactical military commanders on the battlefield. The participants will learn the theory and practical aspects of ELINT operations, applications and technologies. LINT training course covers the fundamentals of information derived primarily from electronic signals that do not contain speech or text (which are considered COMINT).Technical ELINT (TechELINT) covers the foundation of signal structure, emission characteristics, modes of operation, emitter functions and location, and weapons systems associations of such emitters as radars, beacons, jammers, and navigational signals.
