Electromagnetic Compatibility in Communication Systems

Course Description

Parameters of the radiocommunication system. Possibility of jamming the wireless communication and devices and the interception of the radio traffic. Protection of false information in the radio traffic. Jamming. Cryptosecurity. Emission security from interception in communication systems. Physical security. Traffic-flow security. Transmission security in communication systems. Electrostatic discharge. Nuclear electromagnetic impulse and protection from it.
