ELINT/EW APPLICATIONS OF DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING
This course is intended principally for engineers, scientists, and others involved in ELINT/EW software/hardware design and implementation, systems specification, systems design and development, realtime or offline analysis, field operations, advanced concepts, and research & development. Ideally, students should have some familiarity with the elementary concepts of signal processing, and a background in electrical engineering, software engineering, physics, or mathematics. However, students are not required to have prior knowledge of digital signal processing, since all necessary concepts, methods, and techniques are generated as part of the course.
ELINT/EW APPLICATIONS OF DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING has been presented to a broad range of military, intelligence, corporate, and individual customers for a decade, and has been consistently rated very highly by those who have taken this course. It is updated on a regular basis and also as necessary to maintain its state-of-the-art content and value.
This ELINT/EW DSP course is available in either 3 day or 5 day versions, with the latter covering certain topics in greater detail, some additional topics, and permitting adaptation to customer's specific needs.
ELINT/EW DSP is presented by Dr. John F. Green of GMF. He designed this course and has presented of this course since its inception.
At present, this course can be arranged to be presented by GMF in your own facility. Scheduled presentations will be announced here.
Provided below is an outline of the ELINT/EW course presentation. The 5 day version of this course covers some sections in greater detail, the degree to which can be adapted to accommodate customer needs.
Price for the 3 Day course, held at your US facility, is $1199 per student, with significant discounts for 10 or more students attending. A minimum of 6 students is required to schedule this course.
Price for the 5 Day course, held at your US facility, is $1699 per student, with significant discounts for 10 or more students attending. A minimum of 6 students is required to schedule.
Price for the 3 Day course, with presentation at your facility outside the US is $1499 per student (slightly higher for some locales), with 10 student minimum. Significant discounts for additional students.
Price for the 5 Day course, with presentation at your facility outside the US is $1799 per student (slightly higher for some locales), with 10 student minimum. Significant discounts for additional students.
Please contact us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax (530 504-7884) if you have further interest in this course being presented at your facility, or any questions concerning it.
The 3 Day course is also presented for general enrollment from time to time in the Washington, DC area. Schedules and prices are provided here when dates are finalized.
