The Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) just wrapped up the first updated Electronic Warfare Officer (EWO) Course as part of a training modernization effort for electronic warfare (EW). The EWO course of instruction is designed to provide sailors with the basic knowledge and skills to manage shipboard EW functions and resources at the unit level. Updates to the course include the addition of hands-on computer-based training systems designed to improve students' understanding of EW modules. Eleven students in this initial course received training in doctrine, EW control responsibilities aboard ships, multi-platform electronic support and attack capabilities, anti-ship missile defense tactics and EW support facilities. For fiscal year 2017, the EWO Course will be taught at six locations throughout the CIWT domain.
