What is Electronic Warfare ?

The term electronic warfare (EW) refers to any action involving the use of electromagnetic (EM) or directed energy (DE) to control the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) or to attack the enemy. EW includes three major subdivisions: electronic attack (EA), electronic protection (EP), and electronic warfare support (ES). Figure I-2 depicts an overview of EW, the relationships of the three subdivisions, and the relationship of the subdivisions to principal EW activities.
