ELECTRONIC SUPPORT MEASURES (ESM) FOR OFFSHORE PATROL VESSELS (OPV)

This paper reviews today's offshore patrol vessel (OPV) and its increased operational roles; it is clear that there is no common definition of an OPV, and its roles can vary from coastal waters surveillance to EEZ patrol and protection (with increasing emphasis on protection). A detailed examination of this has been completed and the findings are presented in the paper together with some insight into the latest ESM techniques and technologies entering service.
