Course Description

This course offers an in-depth exploration of Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) and Electronic Warfare (EW). It focuses on the strategic, operational, tactical, and technological aspects of these fields, emphasizing the role of electromagnetic energy in SIGINT and EW operations. Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) and Electronic Warfare (EW) represent the frontline of modern defense strategies. SIGINT involves intercepting and analyzing communication signals, providing invaluable insights into adversaries’ activities. EW, on the other hand, encompasses a range of technologies and tactics to control the electromagnetic spectrum, disrupting or manipulating enemy systems. Together, they form a powerful synergy, enhancing military capabilities in surveillance, intelligence gathering, and strategic operations.
