Radio Frequency Principles
The intent of Radio Frequency (RF) Principles Knowledge Unit is to provide students with a basic understanding of radio frequency communications.
- Limiting Access in RF
- Basics of electromagnetic radiation
- Information Modulation
- Digital Modulation
- Spectral representation
- Identify methods for isolating RF emissions
- Identify techniques for obfuscating RF transmissions
- Discuss the tradeoffs associated with bandwidth data rate, modulation, complexity, acceptable BER, and signal spreading
Below are the Knowledge, Skills, Abilities and Tasks (KSA-T) identified as being required to perform this work role.
Learn More about the KAS-T's.
||Knowledge of transmission records (e.g., Bluetooth, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Infrared Networking (IR), Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi). paging, cellular, satellite dishes, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)), and jamming techniques that enable transmission of undesirable information, or prevent installed systems from operating correctly.
||Knowledge of satellite-based communication systems.
