  • Outsmarting threats by electronic attack

     |  Story

    A fighter aircraft on a mission operates in an environment full of threats, such as air and ground based radars and infrared- (IR) or radar-guided missiles. The aircraft is equipped with systems that enable the crew to complete their mission successfully and ensure they can return safely to the base. We are talking about the electronic warfare system.

There are many areas where parallels can be drawn between the challenges of sea depths and weightlessness outside the Earth's atmosphere. Submarines and space crafts also have one basic thing in common; they place extreme demand on design and manufacturing. Building submarines is second to space industry.
