In order to make a model of a piece of equipment and to subsequently develop a simulation based on that model, it is necessary to first understand how the equipment actually works, then to understand the relationships between the controls, inputs, and outputs of that equipment. In this paper, we will look at antennas, transmitters, receivers, processors, and direction finding subsystems. In each case, we will first discuss the roll of that element in EW, and the different types or approaches used in EW. Then we will discuss the input requirements, operator or automatic controls, and output from that element. The object is to end with what is required to model the performance of that element.
