Electronic Warfare includes any action which involves the use of any type of Electromagnetic Spectrum to control a band of the spectrum or to impede any enemy assaults.
Advance nations which depend mostly on sophisticated communication systems and data networks for their command, control, logistics and intelligence are facing a new issue of electronic warfare. They are willing to spend billions on improving and upgrading their systems against this hostile situation. In Electronic Warfare, countries have to make all of their links as robust and resilient as possible.
Electronic warfare systems are helping ground troops to detect and protect themselves from device-triggered IEDs. Programmable jammers are being produced to protect forces in vehicles from Radio Controlled IEDs.
Electronic Warfare system in Navy is used to detect, deceive, deny and defeat threats. Advanced electronic jammers, directed energies and several missiles are being used to be an offensive as well as a defensive player in the field.
Aircraft, in today’s era, are being built with capabilities of electronic attack. They could deceive and disrupt any kind of military electronics systems. They come with installed antennas and receivers.
- ELECTRONIC ATTACK
It involves offensive use of Electromagnetic Energy or anti-radiation energy to attack any facility, equipment or personnel to degrade, destroy or neutralize enemy’s combat capability. Jamming, in case of Electromagnetic Energy, used mostly on radar and communication systems.
Missile and bombs are used in an anti-radiation weapon that follows the defined path and destroys the broadcasting system.
2. ELECTRONIC PROTECTION
It involves protection of friendly forces, facilities and equipment from enemy’s use of electromagnetic spectrum which can degrade, destroy or neutralize one’s combat capability.
Spread Spectrum technology, use of flares, stealth technology, use of restricted frequency list, Jamming are examples of Electronic Protection.
3. ELECTRONIC SUPPORT
It includes action taken by an operator in detection, interception, identification, locating sources of intended or unintended Electromagnetic Energy radiation.
This can be understood as ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance). Electronic Support includes the purpose of recognizing, prioritizing and targeting threats in battlefields.
Washington is sharpening its offensive as well as defensive electronic Warfare game. Most of the world’s best players in this field are from U.S. and government is making deals worth billions of dollars to improve and upgrade the electronics system to defend themselves better and destroy the enemy when required.
BAE has won a contract, in 2016, worth $400 Million to upgrade U.S. Special Ops’ fleet Electronics Warfare system.
With a lot in hand technology, China is dominating the Electronics Warfare market in the Asia Pacific. Equipping its all forms of military with advance Electronic Warfare system have led China among the top players in the world. Countries like India, Australia are procuring advance technology in Electronic Warfare from the U.S. and few European companies which is worth billions.
India’s deal worth 5,000 crores with DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation) to include indigenous sophisticated Electronic Warfare Systems for Indian Army.
After Russia’s invasion on Ukraine, shutting down their communication systems, Electronic Warfare interest and investment in European countries have seen a big jump. Future of Electronics Warfare in Europe can have some advanced system which includes obtaining data from UAVs to optimize ISR operations.
