The Electronic Warfare Program is designed to aid the Electronic Warfare officers in using Electronic Warfare Systems. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

While most Offensive programs are intended to allow the use of weapons mounted on a ship to damage or destroy enemy vessels during physical warfare, the Electronic Warfare Program is used in Electronic Warfare to penetrate the enemy's sensor data and prevent its operation or degrade or subvert its performance.

n.b. for an Electronic Warfare Program to work, the computer operating the Electronic Warfare Program must have an open and unrestricted access to the active emissions system able to affect the target sensors.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Software within Charted Space is intentionally built to work under a number of different operating systems, different technology levels of computers, and to be extensively toughened for hard use under vacuum if necessary. [6]

The Software List: The computer software list, available at nearly any software vendor or port, indicates the various programs that are available. It shows space required by a specific program in CPU or storage, its price in MCr, and its title. Also shown is a brief overview of its effects. [7]

Software Authorship: Various requirements exist for individual characters producing existing or new programs. Such a course can save money, but may have some pitfalls. Program generation is explained elsewhere. [8]
