Rik Schleijpen

Principal Scientist

Electronic warfare (EW) is military action that exploits electromagnetic (EM) energy to provide situational awareness and create effects. EW is a key segment of electromagnetic operations (EMO), and can provide the operational level commander2 with a means to shape the electromagnetic environment (EME) to support NATO operations while denying the same to the adversary

Recent results

The research results in new concepts for protection of military personnel and platforms by electronic means. Most recently this resulted in contributions to the Joint Electronic Warfare Vision of the Netherlands Armed Forces and to the Functional Concept for Electronic Warfare for the Netherlands Navy.

I am a member of NATO STO System Concepts and Integration panel and Symposium chair of SPIE Security + Defence conference.
