Cobham Aviation Services provides operational readiness training, including electronic warfare training, mission rehearsal, and target towing for armed forces around the world.
Electronic warfare training
Electronic warfare is a key element of military operations
today. As one of the three electronic warfare pillars, electronic
attack is a real and evolving threat to military forces worldwide.
This can be utilised in a number of forms, from traditional radar
and communications jamming through to false target generation. A
key feature of our electronic warfare training service is the
unique combination of Dassault Falcon 20 aircraft capability, high
technology electronic attack and threat simulation systems and
experienced crews. By combining military know-how with leading
technology, we are able to provide highly effective and
genuine simulations of real-life encounters against the latest
airborne and maritime platforms.
Armed forces are increasingly facing cost and logistical
challenges in relation to staging realistic end-to-end rehearsals
of complex and demanding missions. To meet this complex training
requirement, we have developed a capability incorporating many of
the enablers essential for successful high-end mission rehearsal.
It is based on extensive experience working closely with armed
forces around the world, a thorough understanding of the military
ethos and advanced specialist knowledge of threat tactics,
techniques and procedures.
We can provide a suite of towed targets of varying Radar Cross
Section, satisfying a wide range of customer requirements in the
development, operational assurance and in-service support of air
defence radars and missile systems worldwide. A range of target
types are available for being towed behind our fleet of
Dassault Falcon 20 aircraft, to suit various requirements for size
and threat type.

- Full access to an industry-leading range of training
