In order to train the future of Signal Intelligence (SIGINT) personnel in Communications Intelligence (COMINT), EW instructors are equipped with scenario generation and scenario execution training platforms.
Using a general purpose 500 kilohertz to 3 gigahertz receiver, as well as a companion data demodulator, students learn to receive and process live off-the-air or laboratory-generated voice and data training signals with authentic technology. Student workstations also run educational applications on a familiar Windows platform.
In order to thoroughly train the next generation of students, DRS also trains the next generation of instructors. The system includes a comprehensive on-site training program for instructors, teaching them both scenario generation and scenario execution.
Students and Instructors may also receive training in Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) as an added feature. This intensive training program provides a realistic representation of today's Radio Frequency (RF) threats through a wide variety of instructor-generated scenarios.
