This presentation will introduce a broad overview of how artificial intelligence (AI) can be used in complex radio frequency systems. AI enables RF systems to respond more quickly and effectively to dynamic environment conditions with complex and novel emitters. I will illustrate where the AI techniques of situation assessment, decision making, and machine learning can function in an RF system, and show how Cognitive Radio, Cognitive Radar and Cognitive Electronic Warfare are the same concept. I will describe how to handle real-time in-mission learning, motivate why this capability is crucial, and present ideas on how to evaluate a system that learns during a mission. The presentation is based on the book "Cognitive Electronic Warfare: An Artificial Intelligence Approach"
