The “Warrior Ethos” Of Restructuring EW
Article | By Steve Walley, dB Control

As the U.S. Air Force restructures its electronic warfare (EW) efforts, its EW Enterprise Capabilities Collaboration Team (ECCT) continues to address prior complaints that the USAF’s EW mission/tools weren’t organized enough to stand up to our Cold War adversaries.

Simplifying Radar Waveform Generation Using R&S Pulse Sequencer Software
White Paper | Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG

Extensive field tests are often used to verify the performance and capabilities of electronic support measures (ESM) and signal intelligence systems (SIGINT) with the advances of signal complexity and bandwidth under preferably natural but controlled conditions. 

The Benefits Of A Tunable RF Filter
Article | By Kevin Harrison, NuWaves Engineering

When you’re only concerned about a single frequency, it’s relatively easy to add in a fixed-tuned filter. However, it becomes slightly more difficult when you need to cover multiple frequencies and can’t just utilize a roofing filter.
