ABSTRACT

Airborne Electronic Warfare: Issues for the 107th Congress [February 9, 2001]   [open pdf - 269KB]

Radar, EW, and stealth techniques have evolved over time as engineers, scientists, and tacticians have struggled to create the most survivable and effective air force possible. Electronic countermeasures self protection systems, such as towed radar decoys, were credited with saving numerous U.S. aircraft that had been targeted by Serbian surface-to-air missiles (SAMs). The Department of Defense is engaged in numerous activities -- such as research and development (R&D) programs, procurement programs, training, experimentation -- that are designed to improve various electronic attack (EA), ECM, and SEAD capabilities both in the near and long term.
