Poisel (senior engineering fellow, Raytheon Missile Systems) presents an introductory level technical text on basic aspects of communication electronic warfare systems, the countermeasure technique targeted against communication radio systems. It is aimed at engineers being introduced to the field far more than the first edition, which contained more extensive discussions of operational matters. Other big changes include expanded coverage of the effects of fading on jammer performance and of the sources and affects of external and internal noise on system performance, in addition to the presentation of the simulated performance of a new system architecture based on the evolving concepts of electronically networked military forces. In addition to the above mentioned topics, chapters cover electronic support and attack, electromagnetic signal propagation, radio communications technologies, signal processing, direction-finding position-fixing techniques, quadratic position-fixing techniques, early-entry organic electronic support, detection and geolocation of frequency-hopping emitters, signal detection range, and unmanned-aerial-vehicle and ground-based electronic attack.
