WEBINAR DETAILS:

Long Term Evolution (LTE) is the dominant fourth-generation cellular technology.  This commercial technology is also under consideration for defense applications where security, reliability, and interoperability issues need to be addressed.  This webinar offers a glimpse of vulnerabilities and challenges of LTE.  A brief overview of LTE is given.  Air interface challenges such as jamming and interference vulnerabilities are described as well as interoperability with pulsed signals (radars).  Extension of LTE to various applications such as planes and satellites will be discussed and associated technology development challenges are summarized.  By the conclusion of this webinar, you will be able to describe LTE capabilities, air interface challenges and technology development challenges of LTE in defense applications.

Intended Audience:
This custom course is intended for EW professionals, DoD and A&D suppliers, and those interested in mitigating spectrum contention between DoD systems and LTE.

Learning Objectives:
After completing this course, the attendee will be able to:
•	Summarize LTE capabilities
•	Describe typical spectrum deployment for LTE
•	Give examples of LTE frequency bands.
•	Understand LTE susceptible to jamming and other interference and how this impacts military usage.
