Electronic Warfare EW - Top 8 Courses For Military Professionals

Electronic warfare technology targets communications, navigation and guidance systems to locate, blind and deceive the enemy and direct lethal blows.

Electronic warfare is used against artillery, fighter jets, cruise missiles, drones and more. Militaries also use it to protect their forces.

The global electronic warfare market reached a value of $16.52 billion in 2021 with an expected value of $23.17 billion by 2027.

Not long ago the Pentagon published an Electronic Warfare strategy that calls for increased investment in advanced electronic warfare technology designed to defend U.S. assets and proactively use the electromagnetic spectrum against enemies.

With this kind of commitment to EW, it may not be that long before the technology exists to cloak military aircraft and Naval vessels and make them vanish the way the Klingons did it in Star Trek.

Analysts contend that warfare is shifting more and more to greater use of electronic warfare strategies. Nowhere has this been more apparent than in the Ukraine battlefields where the simple act of powering up a cellphone could beckon a rain of deathly fire.

Artillery radar and remote controls for unmanned aerial vehicles may also invite showers of shrapnel.

Electronic warfare has been a critical but largely invisible aspect of Russia’s war against Ukraine. Military commanders shun discussing it, fearing they’ll jeopardize operations by revealing secrets.

Nonetheless, electronic warfare has become far more of a factor in fierce fighting in eastern Ukraine, where shorter, easier-to-defend supply lines let Russia move electronic warfare gear closer to the battlefield.

Electronic warfare is employed in three ways: offensive, defensive and supportive measures. In other words, the spectrum is used to attack the enemy, to protect friendly forces and to provide critical situational awareness that aids warfighter decision-making and increases the likelihood of mission success.

Russia, China and the United States have been particularly active in developing next generation electronic warfare technology in order to get the upper hand in any future conflicts.

In fact, the U.S. signed an agreement worth $982 million with Northrop Grumman to acquire state of art Cyber Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA) capabilities for the U.S. Army. The contract will support research and development for cyber and electronic warfare, integration, testing, performance verification, technical support, cybersecurity and laboratory demonstrations.

Bottom line: Electronic Warfare has evolved at such a staggering pace that continual education is required for those whose jobs overlap with this field.
