This paper expounds the connotation of cognitive electronic warfare system and development status at home and abroad, analyzes the framework of cognitive electronic warfare system, and introduces three closed-loop processes: cognitive reconnaissance, cognitive countermeasure, and cognitive effectiveness evaluation; finally, to explore the realization approach of cognitive electronic warfare system, proposes a cognitive electronic warfare platform architecture, and focuses on the analysis of the functional requirements of the platform and key technologies.
