EW Europe 2018: US uses AI to defeat adaptive threats

31st May 2018 - 14:00 GMT | by Alice Budge


The proliferation of advanced digital radar systems is focusing military research and development efforts on technology that can identify and respond to unknown threat emitters in real time, principally through the use of artificial intelligence.

Adaptive EW tools enable forces to detect, identify and defeat radars that utilise agile waveforms and can change their signal characteristics by switching between frequencies to unknown characteristics in order to evade detection.

By applying advanced AI algorithms to EW tools, electronic countermeasure (ECM) and electronic support measure (ESM) systems are able to automatically respond in real time to enemy radar without the need to
