While not sacrificing speed, the performance envelopes of contemporary RWRs can be expanded to perform the strategic functions of cataloging and identifying an enemy's electronic order of battle. Previously, receivers designed to perform such strategic operations, variously known as signal intelligence (SIGINT), electronic intelligence (ELINT), communication intelligence (COMINT) or electronic support measures (ESM), recorded the data for analysis at a later time.
For example, the required location accuracy for determining the electronic order of battle (EOB - the number and types of electronic systems arrayed against you) will depend on the tactical situation, and precision target location accuracy depends on the effective kill radius of the weapons used to attack the located targets.
This is especially true in the characterization of an enemy's radar and communications emitters - sometimes referred to as the electronic order of battle, or EOB - as mapped by friendly electronic-intercept and -location systems.
A second consensus called for better database access and accelerating the migration towards a Joint Tactical Electronic Order of Battle Database.
Less time-sensitive applications - the cataloging and identification of an enemy's electronic order of battle - were grouped under such classes as electronic intelligence (ELINT), communications intelligence (COMINT) and electronic support measures (ESM) receivers.
That is, the "granularity" of a PSet table derived from "open sources" is inadequate to unambiguously identify the radars in an electronic order of battle.
For example, the required location accuracy for determining the electronic order of battle (EOB -- the number and types of electronic systems arrayed against you) will depend on the tactical situation, and precision target location accuracy depends on the effective kill radius of the weapons used to attack the located targets.
The Marines' Tactical Electronic Reconnaissance Processing and Evaluation System (TERPES) helped provide near-real-time updates on the enemy's electronic order of battle. The Air Force shipped 162 early production units of the Digital Computer System to the field to provide rapid reprogramming of EW threat libraries.
The TERPES provided a near real-time electronic intelligence capability for air command functions and provided electronic order of battle information to the Marine Air Ground Task Force.
It would be better to leave the task of identification to the ESM equipment dedicated to provide the electronic order of battle - for example, the ground or naval passive surveillance systems or the ESM installed on board aircraft dedicated to the suppression of the enemies' air defenses.
