This webinar is focused on Electronic Attack (EA) realized via a jamming system to reduce the effectiveness of a radar. In this respect, jamming geometrical configurations are introduced and discussed together with non-coherent and coherent jamming categories. Hence the concepts of masking and deception are explained with emphasis on some common jamming synthesis techniques. The last part of the webinar presents antena-based Electronic Protection (EP) strategies whose goal is to reduce the effectiveness of an opponent’s EA capability. Examples are provided including sidelobe blanking, sidelobe cancellation, mainlobe cancellation, narrow beamwidth, monopulse angle measurement, and low cross-polarization antenna.
