Abstract : This pamphlet provides a basic study and reference document on electronic combat (EC). The concept of EC was developed in response to technological and organizational changes occurring in the Air Force and incorporates the functions of electronic warfare (EW), command, control, and communications countermeasures (C3CM), and suppression of enemy air defense (SEAD). The subject is introduced to the reader through a brief history followed by a broad coverage of electromagnetic radiation and its applications. Next, the C3CM systems employed in modern combat are shown so the reader may gain a knowledge of the environment in which EC must operate. From this point, the major segments of EC are presented in the order in which they are normally employed. For a current glossary of electronic terms, refer to AFM 11-1, volume 3. For abbreviations used in this pamphlet, see attachment 1.
