Abstract:

Based on the lessons learned from the Falkland War, an airborne early warning AEW systems importance is fully appreciated, and many countries field the AEW system to be a force multiplier for their air defense system In this thesis, the AEW systems vulnerability, the sensitivity of each factor dominating the AEW systems defection range under hostile jamming, and the effect of standoff noise jamming SOJ impacting the AEW systems detection range are evaluated using a simulation model to explore the AEW systems susceptibility and detection range degradation in a realistic combat environment.
