Abstract:

The purpose of this text is to make you aware of the capabilities, limitations and applications of the diversified science of electronic warfare. Unfortunately electronic warfare is not electronic, it is not conducted using electrons but it is electromagnetic and it uses as its battleground the total spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. Granted that this radiation is usually generated by electronic equipment, the converse is definitely not true, that all electronic equipment is involved in this conflict. However, the advent of new, modern weapons systems seems to correspond to progressively greater reliance upon victory in this electromagnetic conflict as a prerequisite for victory in battle. Hence every commander must understand the principles involved in this silent and invisible battle so he can turn it to his advantage he must understand the effect It is this silent and unseen electromagnetic conflict that is the subject of this book.
