This comprehensive engineering-level resource provides an introduction to electronic warfare (EW) for communication systems. Extensively referenced with over 600 equations, it details the components, systems, and operations of electronic warfare systems dedicated to protecting and attacking military communications networks. The volume provides a complete understanding of how modern direction finders for communication signals work, along with their limitations. The book also helps the reader acquire a working knowledge of hyperbolic emitter location technologies, and shows how to measure performance, defining the basic operations necessary for communication EW systems.
