Electronic protection is also used to deny adversarial forces’ use of the electromagnetic spectrum, but its posture is defensive.
Electronic protection systems defend individual aircraft, ships, ground vehicles and personnel from electronic threats by providing a protective shield around the platforms and crews in the immediate vicinity.
Electronic protection systems provide threat warning and the means to actively protect themselves.
By understanding the threat landscape, warfighters can avoid detection, prevent hostile systems from locating or tracking them, and, if engaged, generate electronic countermeasures that defeat the threat by a variety of means, including radar jamming, deception or other sophisticated techniques.
