Today wars are fought with more than guns, tanks, and bombs. They are also fought with computer chips, electronics, telecommunications, and satellites. Now in a newly updated and significantly expanded second edition, "Introduction To Communication Electronic Warfare Systems" by Richard A. Poisel (Senior Engineering Fellow at Raytheon Missile Systems, Tucson, Arizona and formerly the Chief Scientist at the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command, Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey), is the definitive textbook on the engineering aspects of communications electronic warfare systems. This newly revised edition is enhanced with the inclusion of a chapter on jamming performance over fading channels and is supported with more than seven hundred equations. Covering such diverse issues as the components, systems, and operations of electronic warfare systems; modern direction finders for communication signals; hyperbolic emitter location technologies; geolocation of low probability of intercept/antijam targets; and expert commentary concerning the future direction of communication electronic warfare systems, "Introduction To Communication Electronic Warfare Systems" is an essential and core addition to professional and academic library Military Science, and Contemporary Electronics reference collections and course studies reading lists.
