Airborne Early Warning System Concepts by Maurice W. Long

By Maurice W. Long

This entire dialogue of airborne early caution (AEW) method techniques features a wide selection of matters, together with features and obstacles, developmental developments and possibilities for development. together with contributions from specialists within the box, the publication is gifted at various degrees of complexity, starting from undemanding to complex. For the generalist, the textual content presents a primary realizing of the prestige of AEW strategies with using in simple terms ordinary arithmetic. For the expert, there are separate chapters that emphasize key AEW radar concerns, together with such themes as plane results on sidelobe litter; litter and objective types for AEW; radar parameter choice; litter, fake alarm, and aim path facts; algorithms for a number of goal monitoring; and goal popularity process improvement. it will likely be a welcome library addition for the engineer, scientist, approach integrator, person, clothier, or supervisor with curiosity in AEW suggestions. it's also appropriate for college students and professors of electric and method engineering or army technological know-how.

Example text

The decision must be made to establish AEW logistics support at the operating base or to establish an operating base where there is logistics support. S. Air Force, for example, bases the E-3A AWACS aircraft at major Air Force logistics centers, rather than collocating the aircraft with other tactical (fighter) aircraft. The other major factor in the basing decision is operational tasking. , command and control, fighter aircraft direction, and so forth). AEW aircraft performing a strategic surveillance mission do not need to be forward based with other tactical aircraft.

These include GPS global positioning system ILS instrument low-approach system INS inertial navigation system LORAN long range navigation TACAN tactical air navigation VOR VHF omnidirectional receiver The navigation suite could be effective with some combination of these systems, without requiring all of them. The AEW mission system needs a navigation reference that is accurate and highly reliable. The inertial navigation system is typically the navigation system of choice. The INS, combined with another source such as an automatic heading and reference system (AHARS) provides the AEW controllers with the type of navigation information they need to complete their missions.

Operational tactics should not have to be written around the performance limitations of the AEW platform. The AEW platform must precede other tactical aircraft into an operating area to perform the mission successfully, and must have some time to develop situational awareness information that must be passed to the tactical aircraft as they arrive in the operational area. , radar sites, fighter aircraft status, and other threats), location of friendly forces, establishment of appropriate data links, and a variety of other mission coordination tasks.
