This thesis gives an overview of electronic support measures (ESM) and electronic countermeasures (ECM) systems. The objective is to give the intended reader, students of the EW curriculum new to the subject, an introduction to several different electronic warfare systems. The thesis consists of seven chapters discussing different areas of EW. The first two chapters introduce the reader to the definitions of EW and the threat which EW equipment is designed to counter, The following two chapters are a presentation of typical ESM and ECM systems. The final three chapters cover the integration of ESM and ECM systems as well as two subjects, suppression of enemy air defense and directed energy weapons, which differ from the typical ECM systems. Included with each chapter describing systems is a conclusion section which discusses possible future developments for the group of systems
