Electronic warfare (EW) is any action involving the use of the electromagnetic spectrum or directed energy to control the spectrum, attack of an enemy, or impede enemy assaults via the spectrum. The purpose of electronic warfare is to deny the opponent the advantage of, and ensure friendly unimpeded access to, the EM spectrum. EW can be applied from air, sea, land, and space by manned and unmanned systems, and can target humans, communications, radar, or other assets.
Electronic Warfare (EW) represents the ability to use the electromagnetic spectrum signals such as radio, infrared or radar to sense, protect, and communicate. At the same time, it can be used to deny adversaries the ability to either disrupt or use these signals. Demfas Aerosystems is working to pioneer the use of Electronic warfare on air, land and sea in Nigeria. This will help in developing disruptive technology to combat threats. The integration of this technology accross various platform will offer a complete control of the electromagnetic spectrum.
