Abstract : Modern battlefield activities require an increasing employment of electronic equipment. The large variety of applications extends from communications to surveillance, from reconnaissance to command and control. With regard to efficiency and limitations, many systems depend on the characteristics of the propagation medium and on operational adaptation to the propagation environment. In order to optimize system performance, operational personnel should possess adequate knowledge of system-relevant propagation criteria, and in addition, a training level which permits an efficient reaction under changeable battlefield conditions. This Lecture Series on Electromagnetic Propagation Problems in the Tactical Environment should be of interest to qualified technical officers and teaching staff, as well as to other personnel qualified in engineering science or natural sciences and connected with tactical electronics of any kind. As tutorial lectures, papers No.1 to No.5 cover all revelant aspects of the present state of the art and likely future development. In subsequent system-oriented lectures, papers No.6 to No.10, electromagnetic propagation problems in the tactical environment are addressed with respect to typical systems. The Lecture Series is concluded by a round-table discussion on the topics dealt with.
