The intent of Radio Frequency (RF) Principles Knowledge Unit is to provide students with a basic understanding of radio frequency communications.


After completing the KU, students will be able to:

  1. Identify methods for isolating RF emissions.
  2. Identify techniques for obfuscating RF transmissions.
  3. Discuss the tradeoffs associated with bandwidth data rate, modulation, complexity, acceptable BER, and signal spreading.


  1. Basics of electromagnetic radiation, Antennas, Information Modulation, Digital Modulation, Spectral representation, Bandwidth, BER, Eb/No vs. S/N
  2. Limiting Access in RF
  3. Propagation Principles
