In this paper, an attempt is made to define electronic attack of integrated air defenses using multiple unmanned air vehicles acting in a coordinated fashion, and to define features of the problem that are salient in the context of cooperative control. The utility of electronic attack is described in the context of integrated air defense systems which rely on RADAR sites that act as a network to gather information about potential airborne threats. General concepts for use of multiple vehicles against RADAR systems are described and formulated in terms of cooperative path planning and resource allocation. Then some approaches to solving the technical problems are described. Although the interests expressed in this paper are motivated by capabilities that might be afforded by many unmanned autonomous vehicles, the concepts are relevant for manned aircraft working in concert with groups of air vehicles.
