  Electronic Warfare
Electronic attack, which refers to the use of electromagnetic energy, directed energy, or anti-radiation weapons to attack personnel, facilities, or equipment with the intent of degrading, neutralizing, or destroying enemy combat capability.
Electronic protection, which refers to passive and active means taken to protect personnel, facilities, and equipment from any effects of friendly or enemy employment of electronic warfare that degrade, neutralize, or destroy friendly combat capability.
Electronic warfare support, which involves actions tasked by, or under direct control of, an operational commander to search for, intercept, identify, and locate or localize sources of electromagnetic energy for the purpose of threat recognition, targeting, planning and conduct of future operations.

 Electronic Warfare...
When it is completed later this year, it should provide the most definitive statement since the Cold War of what role electronic warfare will play in future combat, and what part the Navy will play in carrying out that role.
For example, the "airborne electronic attack" mission area consists of three activities: (1) the nonlethal suppression of enemy air defenses (SEAD); (2) the lethal suppression of enemy air defenses; and (3) self-protection.
The experience of recent years proves that electronic warfare in general, and support jamming in particular, will remain crucial to success in future air campaigns.

 Electronic Warfare and EWSs
Called Electronic Warfare, the ability to impair an attacker's targeting computer, while simultaneously countering the attackers's ability to impair your targeting computer, is very important in modern combat, and this is true on land, sea, air, and in space.
The largest users of electronic warfare are space ships, ocean ships, military installations, and very large robots and fighters.
Electronic Warfare functions in two ways: to lessen an attacker's chance to strike a target and to negate a defender's ability to impair an attackers chance to hit.

 IV.K. Electronic Warfare/Directed Energy Weapons.
Electronic Warfare includes any military action involving the use of electromagnetic and directed energy to control the electromagnetic spectrum or attack an enemy.
Electronic warfare and directed warfare are leading technologies for solving Army problems in scenarios where non-lethal (i.e., no permanent injury) or less than lethal (i.e., could suffer serious injury) force is required.
Through electronic attack strategies demonstrated with prototype hardware and software, these digital communications signals will be disrupted, denied, and/or modified to render the communications system ineffective and unreliable to the threat command and control function.

 Chinese Defence Today - Y-8 EW/ELINT Aircraft   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The PLA Air Force was known to be have been using the Y-8 for special electronic warfare (EW) missions including electronic intelligence (ELINT) and offensive electronic countermeasures (ECM) in the past, but little was known about these programme until an electronic warfare variant Y-8 was first spotted in operation in Summer 2004.
There has been rumour suggesting that some of the mission equipment may come from the U.S. Navy EP-3 ELINT aircraft, which made an emergency landing in Hainan Island in April 2001 after colliding with a Chinese fighter, but this cannot be confirmed.
The PLA may well be capable of developing its own indigenous EW/ELINT system as a result of the country’s booming electronic and telecommunications industry.
