Page reverted due to the fact that a user had edited to make it discuss a completely different type of electronic warfare. Cap'n Refsmmat 00:05, Nov 25, 2004 (UTC)

The Sound Analogy[edit]

Is it appropriate to use the extended analogy to sound waves in this article? In addition, I think it needs to be clairified that radar uses raido waves and not sound waves.

Incomplete definition?[edit]

The definition provided is "any sort of electronic or electrical device..." but flares and chaff are mentioned in the next few paragraphs, which fit neither definition. Do we need to expand the definition or delete the mention of flares and chaff? -Toptomcat 17:08, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

They are electronic countermeasures, so removing the mention of flares and chaff would be the best thing to do. Cap'n Refsmmat 22:14, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

Global Perspective[edit]

The article only looks at ECM from a Western perspective. Specifically, Soviet / Russian and Chinese technology is barely mentioned or not mentioned at all. An expansion on Eastern-bloc historic and modern-day perspectives on ECM would be useful, and integration of non-US examples, as well as clarification on the source countries of existing examples.

Yes, the article is western oriented, but the story is much the same wherever you go. More examples from more diverse sources would improve the article, but the message would be very similar.Petebutt (talk) 13:50, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

Aircraft ECM[edit]

-Added a mention of the alternative to EW aircraft (jamming pods on fighters).

-Rewrote the short description, with an appropriate reference, of the next generation jammer to read less like an advertisement (wide listening solid angles and focused jamming are not new features).

-Removed the nonsense about PREW, which is an arrangement of jammers, using synthetic aperture radar (the reference provided did not mention SAR once). The only link between the two is an application by General Dynamics to the PREW concept describing the use of a SAR for ground imaging.

-Removed the few lines about the Cognitive Jammer which, as of 2012, remains a vague appeal by an US governmental institution to the electronics industry to extremely generally inquire about what is currently feasible in the proportion of processing realized by software only. Despite statistically selecting frequency bands to jam, it uses no fundamentally new techniques and certainly has no reason to be a separate part of the article. (talk) 18:47, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
