David from Cyntony explains the difference between EP, EA and ES.

Defining Electronic Attack, Protection, and Support

Electronic warfare is divided into three categories: electronic attack, electronic protection, and electronic support.

  1. Electronic Attack: Associated with jamming or other effects, delivered offensively, to degrade the electromagnetic systems and communications of an opposing force.
  2. Electronic Protection: Tactics used defensively to prevent or mitigate the effects of electronic attack on your own communications systems.
  3. Electronic Support: The ways in which you gain situational awareness on the electromagnetic spectrum, through operations such as signals intelligence, and direction finding.
