Abstract : Based on the lessons learned from the Falkland War, an airborne early warning (AEW) system's importance is fully appreciated, and many countries field the AEW system to be a force multiplier for their air defense system In this thesis, the AEW system's vulnerability, the sensitivity of each factor dominating the AEW system's defection range under hostile jamming, and the effect of standoff noise jamming (SOJ) impacting the AEW system's detection range are evaluated using a simulation model to explore the AEW system's susceptibility and detection range degradation in a realistic combat environment.
