The electronic countermeasures (ECM) include methods to completely prevent or restrict the effective use of the electromagnetic spectrum by the opponent. The most widespread means of disorganizing the operation of electronic devices is to create active and passive radio-electronic jamming. The paper presents the way of jamming efficiency calculations for protecting ground objects against the radars mounted on the airborne platforms. The basic mathematical formulas for calculating the efficiency of active radar jamming are presented. The numerical calculations for ground object protection are made for two different electronic warfare scenarios: the jammer is placed very closely and in a determined distance from the protecting object. The results of these calculations are presented in the appropriate figures showing the minimal distance of effective jamming. The realization of effective radar jamming in electronic warfare systems depends mainly on the precise knowledge of radar and the jammer’s technical parameters, the distance between them, the assumed value of the degradation coefficient, the conditions of electromagnetic energy propagation and the applied jamming method. The conclusions from these calculations facilitate making a decision regarding how jamming should be conducted to achieve high efficiency during the electronic warfare training.
