This exciting new resource investigates the function of RF communication in electronic warfare systems. The book provides in-depth coverage of how RF signals must be constructed to perform jamming missions, which prevent a receiver from properly extracting a target signal. Technical descriptions of oscillators and modulators, which generate the RF signals, are presented and explored. Power supplies that generate adequate power for fueling high power amplifiers are also described and their operations investigated.


Oscillator basics, including principles of oscillator operation, phase locked loop synthesizers and direct digital synthesis are examined. Fundamentals of RF communications, including power supplies for RF power amplifiers, are included, making it useful for both novice and advanced practitioners. Written by a prominent expert in the field, this authoritative book is the first available that combines the topics of electronic warfare and oscillator design and analysis.

Introduction; Modulation and Modulators; EW Exciters; Introduction to RF Amplifiers; Semiconductor Technologies; BJT Amplifiers; MOSFET Amplifiers; Biasing Active Devices; RF Power Amplifiers; Amplifier Stability; Power Amplifier Linearity; Thermal Management of RF Power Amplifiers; Power Supplies for RF Power Amplifiers.
