    (221) Any military action involving the use of the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum to include directed energy to attack an enemy is called?

    • A.

      Electronic support (ES)

    • B.

      Electronic warfare (EW)

    • C.

      Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP)

    • D.

      Electromagnetic Interference (EMI)

    Correct Answer
    B. Electronic warfare (EW)
    Explanation
    Electronic warfare (EW) refers to any military action that involves the use of the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum, including directed energy, to attack an enemy. This can include activities such as jamming enemy communications, disrupting radar systems, or using directed energy weapons to disable enemy equipment. Electronic support (ES) refers to actions that involve the use of the EM spectrum to gather information about the enemy's electronic capabilities. Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) refers to a burst of electromagnetic radiation that can disrupt or damage electronic equipment. Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) refers to unintentional electromagnetic radiation that can disrupt or degrade the performance of electronic equipment.

    • A.

      Frequency agility in a radio

    • B.

      Communications intelligence

    • C.

      Electronic and material shielding for systems

    • D.

      Process to counter meaconing, interference, jamming, and intrustion

    Correct Answer
    B. Communications intelligence
    Explanation
    The given options describe various examples of electronic protection (EP), which refers to measures taken to protect electronic systems from threats such as interference, jamming, and intrusion. Frequency agility in a radio, electronic and material shielding, and processes to counter meaconing, interference, jamming, and intrusion are all examples of EP. However, "communications intelligence" does not fall under the category of EP. Communications intelligence refers to the collection and analysis of information from communication systems, and is not directly related to protecting electronic systems from threats.

    (221) Which electronic warfare (EW) component responds to taskings to search for, intercept, identify, and locate intentional and unintentional sources of radiated energy?

    • A.

      Electronic Attack (EA)

    • B.

      Electronic control (EC)

    • C.

    • D.

      Electronic protection (EP)

    Correct Answer
    C. Electronic support (ES)
    Explanation
    Electronic support (ES) is the correct answer because it involves the tasks of searching for, intercepting, identifying, and locating intentional and unintentional sources of radiated energy. This component of electronic warfare is responsible for collecting and analyzing electromagnetic emissions to provide situational awareness and support other electronic warfare operations. Electronic Attack (EA) involves using electromagnetic energy to attack enemy systems, Electronic control (EC) involves controlling friendly systems, and Electronic protection (EP) involves protecting friendly systems from electronic warfare threats.

      Controlling the information an enemy

    • B.

      The elimination of some or all of an adversary's electronic defenses

    • C.

      The deliberate radiation of EM energy intended to convey misleading information to an enemy

    • D.

      Degrading or interfering with the enemy's use of the EM spectrum to limit the enemy's combat capabilities

    Correct Answer
    C. The deliberate radiation of EM energy intended to convey misleading information to an enemy
    Explanation
    Electromagnetic (EM) deception in electronic warfare (EW) refers to the intentional emission of EM energy with the purpose of providing false or misleading information to the enemy. This tactic aims to confuse and misguide the adversary by conveying deceptive signals or information through the use of electromagnetic radiation. By doing so, EM deception disrupts the enemy's ability to accurately interpret and utilize the electromagnetic spectrum, ultimately limiting their combat capabilities.

    (225) The common name for the method of changing the encryption keys over the radio channel in a two-way radio system is called?

    • A.

      Over-the-air rekeying (OTAR)

    • B.

    Explanation
    Over-the-air rekeying (OTAR) is the common name for the method of changing the encryption keys over the radio channel in a two-way radio system. This method allows for the secure and efficient changing of encryption keys without the need for physical access to the radios. It ensures that the communication remains secure by regularly updating the encryption keys over the airwaves, minimizing the risk of unauthorized access or decryption of the transmitted information.

    (225) Centralized control of encryption keys will not reduce?

    • A.

      Procedural problems

    • B.

      Operational problems

    • C.

      Security problems

    • D.

      Safety problems

    Correct Answer
    D. Safety problems
    Explanation
    Centralized control of encryption keys will not reduce safety problems. This means that even with centralized control, safety issues related to encryption keys will still exist. Centralized control refers to the practice of managing all encryption keys in a single location, which can lead to potential vulnerabilities and risks. Safety problems may include unauthorized access to encryption keys, loss or theft of keys, or inadequate protection measures. Therefore, while centralized control may address other issues such as procedural, operational, or security problems, it does not necessarily eliminate safety problems.
