208: AIR TO SURFACE WARFARE (ASW) MISSION AREA
208.1 SYSTEM COMPONENTS AND COMPONENT PARTS
208.1.1 Discuss the following detection systems:
SLQ-32, SPS 49, SPS 48, TAS Mk-23, CIWS
b. Electronic Countermeasures (ECM) (active and passive)
SLQ-32 – Passive operations are those that cannot be directly detected by the enemy. To avoid detection (make invisible). Active operations are actions taken that the enemy can detect. They prevent effective use of the enemy’s equipment. Electronic jamming to interfere with radar and communication.
