In this chapter, we will be introduced to the six basic types of countermeasures - chaff, noise jamming, false targets, gate stealers, angle deception, and decoys. We will see how each is used, and learn how it is implemented and what its limitations are. Chaff, the simplest of all ECM, can screen an entire raid from radars operating over a wide range of frequencies. But moving-target indication rejects chaff return.
