Introduction to Electronic Intelligence (ELINT)
Introduction to Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) is a comprehensive 2-day course that provides the underpinning GEOINT knowledge and practical skills necessary to work with intelligence and ELINT analytics. ELINT intelligence products can support military operational planners and tactical military commanders on the battlefield.
The participants will learn the theory and practical aspects of ELINT operations, applications and technologies.
ELINT training course covers the fundamentals of information derived primarily from electronic signals that do not contain speech or text (which are considered COMINT).
Technical ELINT (TechELINT) covers the foundation of signal structure, emission characteristics, modes of operation, emitter functions and location, and weapons systems associations of such emitters as radars, beacons, jammers, and navigational signals.
Participants will learn how to to obtain signal parameters that can define the capabilities and the role of the emitter in the larger system, such as a ground radar locating aircraft,
and thus lead to the design of radar detection, countermeasure,
or counter weapons equipment.
Operational ELINT (OpELINT) concentrates on locating specific ELINT targets and determining the operational patterns of the systems. These results are commonly
called Electronic Order of Battle (EOB). Participants will learn how OpELINT provides threat assessments, often referred to as “tactical ELINT.”
ELINT collection, processing, and reporting of foreign telemetry signals intelligence is referred as TELINT. Participants will learn how TELINT technical and intelligence information derived from the intercept, processing, and analysis of foreign telemetry.
