Parent topics

  • Signals intelligence [r]: the practice of acquiring information through monitoring the electromagnetic signals deliberately trasmitted by an opponent, including communications (COMINT) and non-communications electronics such as radar (ELINT). [e]


Subtopics

  • Radar intercept receiver [r]: detects and categorizes an impinging signal to the level needed for radar identification and selecting countermeasures. [e]
  • Radar warning receiver [r]: allows detection of a radar that potentially might be able to sense the platform carrying the receiver, but does not give detailed characterization of the radar signal, as needed for electronic intelligence. [e]
  • Radio intercept receiver [r]: can receive arbitrary radio signals with sufficient detail to characterize the radio type, record communications for analysis, or plan countermeasures. [e]
