In this paper, elementary theory of operation of the EIKs is described, together with design considerations and system interface information. Some historical milestone achievements of the EIK transmitters are summarized. Recent advances are presented, including frequency coverage, output power, bandwidth, gain, noise, size, weight, efficiency, and pulse repetition frequency. Future development of these products are discussed.
