Network Centric Warfare (NCW) and swarming have become very important operational terms parallel to the improvements in wireless network technologies. These relatively new concepts are being widely used in many operational applications. The main purpose of this research effort is to examine the metrics of NCW, and the use of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) swarms in electronic attack (EA) missions. UAVs have already been used in many military operations. Swarming a number of small UAVs in a distributed beamforming approach to have the desired operational effect is the current popular research area. Distributed beamforming and swarm behavior of self-synchronized autonomous UAVs are investigated in this study. Two simulation scenarios were created and implemented to show the effectiveness of EA against radars and wireless communication links. In reality, EA against a single node in a network, such as a radar or communication link, is unlikely to be successful by itself, however simulation results showed that the decision making process of the enemy network and OODA (Observe, Orient, Decide, Act) cycle is directly vulnerable to jamming.
