    What are electronic support measure systems?

    Electronic support measure Systems are the subset of electronic warfare (EW), which encompasses a range of activities and capabilities aimed at detecting, identifying, locating, and analyzing electromagnetic emissions and signals from other electronic devices, such as radar systems, communications equipment, and other electronic systems. The primary objectives of ESM systems are to gain situational awareness, gather intelligence, and support electronic countermeasure systems. These systems provide a tactical advantage by giving commanders insights into enemy capabilities, movements, and intentions based on their electronic emissions. They play a vital role in modern warfare, helping military forces gather intelligence, protect their own electronic systems, and disrupt or deceive the electronic capabilities of adversaries, making them an essential component of contemporary military operations.
