3 Overview EW FUNDAMENTALS INTEGRATION ELECTRONIC ELECTRONIC SUPPORT IW 150 EW NotetakerOverviewEW FUNDAMENTALSELECTRONICSUPPORT- Basics- AssetsELECTRONICATTACK- Basics- AssetsELECTRONICPROTECT- Basics- AssetsFirst we’ll introduce a few basics on electronic warfare and and the electromagnetic spectrum. EW is subdivided into 3 categories:Electronic AttackElectronic ProtectElectronic SupportThen we’ll show how effective all these can be when they are carefully integrated by examining the Israeli attack on the Beka’a Valley in June of 1982.INTEGRATION
4 IW 150 EW NotetakerElectronic WarfareAFDD 2-5.1… any military action involving the use of electromagnetic and directed energy to control the electromagnetic spectrum or to attack an adversary.Note that according to the definition, EW is more than just a battle between “trons.” It includes using the EM spectrum as a weapon, the same as a bullet. Caution: EM weapons are starting to emerge into antipersonnel and antimateriel roles; we will see infantrymen using them—perhaps without due consideration to the whole IW fight unless we pay attention to the doctrine and its applications!
5 Why is Electronic Warfare a pillar of Information Warfare? IW 150 EW NotetakerWhy is Electronic Warfare a pillar of Information Warfare?INFORMATION FUNCTIONSACROSS THE EM SPECTRUM!COMINTCOMMSSIGINTDenial (OPSEC)Indications & WarningDeceptionExamplesLaser RangefindersMicrowave CommsRadar SurveillanceElectronic ID (IFF)Infrared ImageryEHF for Satellite ControlHarnessing EM energy and the use of EM principles are the basis for the technologies that have made the information revolution possible. EM energy is the means by which modern information systems process, store, and TRANSMIT information.EM energy is also used for sensing, measuring, analyzing and communicating information. This dependence on EM energy and use of the EM spectrum by the systems that sense, process, store, measure, analyze, and communicate information create IO opportunities and vulnerabilities that EW can address.We use virtually the entire electromagnetic spectrum for communications and data transfer activities.LASER rangefinders, microwave communications, infrared imagery, RADAR tracking, EHF for satellite controls are all information functions that fall within the EM spectrum.And let’s not forget the most overlooked portion of EW--the visual spectrum.Our ability to dominate control of the spectrum directly affects how well we can protect our systems and affect those of our adversary.

Both you and the enemy must share the spectrum. If the enemy is using a portion of the spectrum that you want to deny him, you may want to check if you are using the same portion. The EM spectrum does not discriminate sides of a conflict.Just looking at a small section of the frequency band, you can see that we use all of it for many purposes.TRANSITION: So does the adversary...
10 EW FUNDAMENTALS INTEGRATION IW 150 EW NotetakerEW FUNDAMENTALSELECTRONICSUPPORTELECTRONICATTACKELECTRONICPROTECTEA is the first area of EW we’ll look at...INTEGRATION
11 IW 150 EW NotetakerElectronic AttackThat division of electronic warfare involving the use of electromagnetic (EM), directed energy (DE) or anti-radiation weapons to attack personnel, facilities, or equipment with the intent of degrading, neutralizing, or destroying enemy combat capability- The term “ECM” is Dead!Notice the inclusion of directed energy and personnel. Directed energy weapons, such as LASERs are EM spectrum users. People are not excluded as targets. Using EM waves to affect the function of a person’s brain or bowels (you’ll see examples of this in emerging technologies) is EA. The brain is a sophisticated information function--this is also IW.
12 Anti-Radiation Munitions IW 150 EW NotetakerAnti-Radiation MunitionsAny munition using an enemy’s source of electromagnetic radiation as a primary means of terminal guidance for the purpose of damaging or destroying the sourceThere are a number of ARMs out there. The High Speed Anti Radiation Missile (HARM) shown here is built by Texas Instruments and is the one currently on the F-16CJ and the EA-6B. Although highly capable, the warhead is relatively small and the damage done is usually only to the antenna. Getting a site operational after a HARM attack is usually only a matter of replacing the antenna.
13 ARM Effects? BEFORE AFTER SA-2 FAN SONG RADAR IW 150 EW Notetaker This shows the effect a large weapon, perhaps an AGM-130 or even artillery, has on a SA-2, Fan Song RADAR. The HARM is not the only game in town. ALARM is the ECR Tornado’s radar homing missile. There are also artillery shells which can home in on electronic emissions.- should have turned it off- Iraq -- “Magnum” call had utility—bad guys turn off radars!SA-2 FAN SONG RADAR
14 IW 150 EW NotetakerDirected EnergyDirected energy is an umbrella term for technologies relating to the production of a beam of concentrated EM energy or atomic or subatomic particlesEXAMPLE: LASER: in this case a Navy DEW High Energy LASER Weapons System (HELWS). With ARMs, you are attacking an information system--the RADAR. With directed energy, you are back to the physical destruction scenario whereby not all DEW (Directed Energy Weapon) use is IW. It is target dependent. What is your target?This is also where trying to place things in neat little categories has some flaws. Few of today’s LASERs are powerful enough to be destructive. (Progress toward that end is moving along rapidly, however). But, many of todays directed energy does serve an information function. Because directed energy is placed on the destructive side of the house, we’ll deal with it.
15 LASERS Common on the battlefield Low power High power IW 150 EW NotetakerLASERSCommon on the battlefieldLow powerDazzle / disorient personnelDegrade sensors / opticsObjects with or near the source veiledHigh powerEye damageDestroy sensors / opticsDamage / degrade guidance & seeker hardwareAt long ranges dazzle / disorientLASERs are extremely common on today’s battlefield. They are used for ranging and target designation. They are used for security (ie. LASER beam intrusion systems). Many of these are information functions.Eyeballs, a critical information function, are extremely sensitive to LASER light. [have someone read aloud the warning on the LASER pointer]. This pointer is a very low power model. Even low power systems can cause disorientation.Protection is available in the form of helmet visors and laser goggles. These are limited in that each one can only protect against a narrow frequency band. So there is no all-encompassing laser eye protection. Research is also being done to build in laser protection to the canopies of aircraft such as the F The US has said it will not use LASER intentionally as a blinding device, however, LASERs as antipersonnel weapons...“Such use would not cause unnecessary suffering when compared to other wounding mechanisms to which a soldier might be exposed on the modern battle field, and hence would not violate any international law obligation of the united states. Accordingly, the use of antipersonnel laser weapons is lawful.”26 SEP 1988JAG IAW DOD InstrBut they can also be used to attack information systems such as light-sensitive sensors while remaining concealed.
16 NonDestructive EA Jamming Electromagnetic Deception IW 150 EW NotetakerNonDestructive EAJammingElectromagnetic Deception- The intent here is to dominate: to buy time so that other tasks, such as bombing the stew out of the bad guys, can be accomplished. Some methods and tools of this type of EA include:JammingElectromagnetic DeceptionDrones
17 Noise Jamming Advantages Disadvantages IW 150 EW NotetakerNoise JammingThe deliberate radiation, reradiation orreflection of electromagnetic energyAdvantagesInstantaneous applicationRepeated applicationsDegrades radar capabilitiesDisadvantagesLoss of surpriseEffects on friendly systemsEffectiveness measured by end game response- Generally speaking instantaneous and flexible. Not expendable, so you don’t run out of it and it’s reuseable. And, depending on age/generation of the system and the skill of the RADAR operator, can be very effective in masking friendly forces.Important point, here. Remember good guys and bad guys share the same EM spectrum. Noise jamming does not discriminate friend or for. In general, if the adversary’s scope looks like this, a friendly scope on the same frequency will look the same way. Anything operating in the jammed frequency will be affected.There also is little feedback to the operator on his success. The jammer does not have the luxury of viewing the enemy’s scope to see how well he’s obscured the friendly forces. Usually effectiveness will be measured by the results of the engagement.It becomes difficult to measure the effectiveness of platforms like the EA-6B
18 Electromagnetic Jamming IW 150 EW NotetakerElectromagnetic JammingHere you can see the differences in the various types of scopes. The top shows a clear scope with a single target illuminated.The bottom show the same scope and single target with the protection of noise jamming. Jamming often becomes a battle of brute force. Aircraft jamming systems have limited power output. The ground systems typically have much greater power availability. At some point, the target becomes close enough to the RADAR and/or the output signal is made powerful enough that the reflected energy is greater than the incoming jamming. At that point, the target the jammer intended to mask begins to show on the scope in spite of the noise. This is ‘burn through.’...Often a battle of brute force

However, DEAD it really has trouble with, and OCA/DCA is practically a pipe dream: these guys usually fly with MIG CAP over them. They are quite limited air-to-air—particularly before the big missiles leave!

23 IW 150 EW NotetakerElectronic DeceptionThe deliberate radiation, re-radiation, alteration, absorption, or reflection of electromagnetic energy in a manner to mislead an enemy in the interpretation or use of information received by his electronic systemsMeaconingChaffFlaresA-10 RuddersB-2 EnginesStealth TechnologyNavigation systems--Meaconing--the practice of inserting a navigation beacon on the same frequency as a know navigation signal with the intention of causing users of the known signal to divert their course based on information from the bogus signal.Heat signature concealment-- The heat signature that “heat seeking” missiles use is actually infrared energy. Thus, the proper name for “heat seeking” is Infrared homing.Attempts to conceal the IR signature is evident by the placement of the rudders on the A-10 Thunderbolt, an aircraft whose mission places it in the prime tactical range of IR missiles.The B-2 worked this problem by burying the engines deep inside the fuselage, giving the exhaust time to cool before it is vented outside the aircraft.

RADAR locks on, chaff is dropped and RADAR tracks off BUFF and on to chaff. Operator reacquires aircraft and again, RADAR is thrown off by chaff. This sequence is shown twice so you can see it more clearly.AFTER VIDEO: As you can see, if you expose yourself long enough, you are going to get shwacked.
25 Flares Rapid burning dispensable Function Characteristics IW 150 EW NotetakerFlaresRapid burning dispensableFunctionDecoy for IR missileCharacteristicsMust have more IR energy in the missile’s FOV than the aircraftAppropriate frequency coverageEnough burn timeLARGE FOVFlares mimic the IR emissions of an aircraft. The intent is to divert the IR seeker on an IR missile from looking at the aircraft to locking on to the flare.To accomplish this, it is hoped that the missile will begin to follow the flare as it is ejected from the aircraft. This will work only if the flare has a very fast rise time (it become hot very quickly) and emits in the same IR frequency band as the aircraft.As the aircraft maneuvers away from the flare, it also begins to move out of the missile’s field of vision. Theoretically, by the time the missile realizes it has locked on to a flare, the aircraft has safely exited the missile’s field of vision, never to be acquired again. Modern IR missiles have larger FOVs and improved flare rejection capabilities, making this feat increasingly difficult.SMALL FOV
26 Drones Designed to saturate the enemy’s air defense systems IW 150 EW NotetakerDronesDesigned to saturate the enemy’s air defense systemsAct as missile baitQuailSampsonTALDShooters?- Quail: Same radar cross-section of the B-52; idea was to saturate the Russian IADS with numerous sitings of ingressing bombers.- Sampson: Israel used these drones to saturate Syrian IADS. After numerous Israeli losses to the SA-6 in the ‘70s, the drones were developed/used to deplete the Syrian SA-6s/SA-8s in more recent operations.- TALD (Tactical Air Launched Decoy): high success rate. S-3, F-18, A-7, EA-6 launched-11Th recon sqdrn at Nellis standing up and willincrease our interoperability with unmanned aerialvehicles during exercises.These decoys are often equipped with tranmitters to mimic actual aircraft. These emitters can enlarge the drones RADAR cross section, replicate a RADAR system, and perform electronic protection like an actual aircraft...
27 OVERVIEW EW FUNDAMENTALS INTEGRATION ELECTRONIC SUPPORT ELECTRONIC IW 150 EW NotetakerOVERVIEWEW FUNDAMENTALSELECTRONICSUPPORTELECTRONICATTACKELECTRONICPROTECTWhich brings us to the next subset of EW: Electronic Protect.INTEGRATION
28 IW 150 EW NotetakerElectronic ProtectActions taken to protect personnel, facilities, and equipment from any effects of friendly or enemy employment of EW that degrade, neutralize, or destroy friendly combat capability.Yes, there is some effective EA hardware out there, but we must also protect ourselves against their use--we aren’t the only folks with the cool toys...
29 EMCON Defensive Counterinformation Emissions control IW 150 EW NotetakerEMCONEmissions controlSelective and controlled use of EM, acoustic, or other emitters to optimize C2 capabilities while minimizing detection of enemy sensorsExample: Turn off mapping radar...Turn off IFF?What sort of IW is EMCON?EMCON: Don’t give away the farm. If you aren’t using it, don’t broadcast. This can help prevent the adversary from getting a DF steer and also limits his ability to collect on you.Fence Check: Before aircraft cross the proverbial fence into hostile territory, perform a check to shut down extra emitters.Electromagnetic maskingThe controlled radiation of EM energy on friendly frequencies in a manner to protect the emissions of friendly communications and es systems against enemy ES/SIGINT, without degrading the operation of friendly systems??? I get the definition, but give me an example…more research needed.Defensive Counterinformation

Good ole SAC (may she rest in peace) was great at installing EMP hardened equipment in her aircraft. This would allow them to function in spite of severe EM pulse associated with nuclear blast.

Compass call is fairly driven by the JRFL—a bad one makes them much less effective.

34 IW 150 EW NotetakerElectronic SupportActions taken by, or under direct control of an operational commander to search for, identify, and locate sources of radiated electromagnetic energy for immediate threat recognition in support of EW and other tactical operations- Electronic Support is there to provide the Operational Commander, and those others who need it, the information necessary to carry out the operational needs on a daily basis.- Electronic Support was vital during the Gulf campaign. It insured the battlefield commanders were kept up to date on Iraqi troop movements, and Iraqi offensive and defensive capabilities.- ES is still an on-going process during Operation Southern Watch, and Bosnian Civil War.- Unlike intelligence, ES deals closer with real time and near real time information. During a conflict, possibly the most important information observed and passed out is combat information. (Next slide)
35 IW 150 EW NotetakerElectronic SupportES provides a source of information required for immediate decisions involving electronic attack (EA), avoidance, targeting and other tactical employment of forces—particularly SEAD forces!ES assets and data can also be used to produce signals intelligence (SIGINT), communications intelligence (COMINT) and electronic intelligence (ELINT)

There are no more TR-1’s in the inventory, they are all U-2’s.The bump on the back of the one above allows for NRT satellite links (SPAN). Without SPAN, the U-2 is “tethered” to a ground site within its line of site where the information is processed. With SPAN, it can data link information to processors anywhere in the world.U-2’s fly between 65,000’ to 73,000’ giving it a line-of-site of approximately 300nm. It flies on internal fuel only (no in-flight refueling) and is capable of flying for approximately 8 hours.The pilot flies a pre-canned flight plan and has no interaction with the ES equipment. All equipment manipulation (other than turning it on) occurs from the ground via data links.

The plane’s crew consists of 2 pilots only. All information is data linked to a ground site, much like the U-2.Guardrail does not have a satellite link capability so it is limited to line of site processing from the ground. The ground processing takes place in a large structure that is not easily moved. This could be a limitation if the FLOT moves rapidlyTypically flies in 3 ship formations. The 3 aircraft are linked and provides instant lob information by combining information from all three aircraft.The GUARDRAIL is subordinate to the CORPS CC only. To task the GUARDRAIL for information, you must get permission from the CC.takes 5 C-5’s to put in a ground site

41 AUTOMATIC SYSTEMS Computer driven Timeliness Data link Accuracy LOB’s IW 150 EW NotetakerAUTOMATIC SYSTEMSComputer drivenTimelinessData linkAccuracyLOB’sLimited parametric dataRF, PRI, PWProcess thousands of signals per missionHundreds of signals simultaneously- This is a generic look at an automatic system. Automatic systems are aboard the RIVET JOINT, COMBAT SENT, SENIOR SCOUT (if requested) EP-3 and U2 (with ELINT package). Generally speaking, automatic systems provide the following capabilities:- Automatic systems are primarily computer driven with some human interface. Most parameters are permission loaded on the ground via software.- The system can quickly, in a matter of a few seconds to a minute, identify and locate a ground system.- Once collected, the information is data linked to the users NRT via TADIL, MIBS or TIBS.- The system can quickly and accurately locate a system on the ground within a mile or less.- The system requires at least 2, but generally more lobs to get an accurate location.- One of an automatic systems biggest weakness when ID’ing a target is the fact it only looks at RF, PRI, and PW. It does not look at the scan time or scan type and it does not give the operator audio of the system.- Generally speaking, used correctly and weaknesses in ID’ing aside, the system is an outstanding tool in searching, ID’ing, and locating signals. It can literally processes hundreds of signals per hour and thousands of signals per mission.
