Aegis Combat System Engineering course


Share |

Summary:

Technical Training Short On Site Course Quote

Naval engagements can be divided into three major functions: Detect, Control, Engage. The Aegis Combat System (ACS) is the first to tightly integrate, interlace, and overlap all three functions into one. The central integrating element of the ACS is the Aegis Weapon System (AWS) which is a multifunction radar and fire control system designed for the Navy’s anti-air warfare (AAW) mission of fleet defense. The system conducts AAW engagements, starting with surveillance and tracking by the SPY-1 radar; application of engagement doctrine by the Command and Control system; intercept calculation, weapon selection, launch, and guidance of the Standard Missile by the Weapon Control system; and terminal homing by the Fire Control System using the MK-99 illuminator. Attendees will study the System Engineering processes: concept definition; design: and implementation; and understand application in design and upgrade configurations. Focus will be on engineering of the Weapon System including Standard Missile and Aegis Combat System integration. Program and Project Managers, Contract Administrators, Quality Managers, and Engineers (all disciplines) can accelerate their ability to understand ACS design competences.

This class is restricted to US citizens.

Instructor:

John W. Parnell served as Chief Architect for Aegis Missile Defense, Naval Air Defense, and Intelligence & Instrumentation Radar System Synthesis and Analysis for Lockheed Martin at their Moorestown, NJ facility. He gained expertise in Aegis BMD Weapon System Engineering as Technical Lead on both the Navy Area Wide and the Aegis LEAP Intercept (ALI) Programs. His 35+ years- experience with Lockheed Martin includes: technical direction, system definition and design of multi-platform, multi-function weapon systems; system development of radar, missile fire control, BMC3, ECCM, & CEC. Mr. Parnell served on the MDA National Team from 2002-2007.

He is now a consultant for systems engineering for the future IAMD system.

What You Will Learn: The main focus will be on engineering of the Weapon System including Standard Missile and Aegis Combat System integration. Students will develop an understanding of the three System Engineering process phases: concept definition; design: and implementation. A background in understanding System Engineering application in design and upgrade configurations will be provided. Students will examine how the System Engineering process ensures that systems are developed to meet mission performance objectives which are affordable, operationally effective, and timely.

Course Outline:

    Provides an ngineering overview of Aegis Combat System (ACS) design competencies : (a) ACS Missions (AAW, ASUW, ASW, EW, SW, BMD) (b) System Engineering Process (Concept Definition , Design & Implementation (Integration & Test & Certification) and (c)System Development Process (Planning (V-chart), Lessons learned & applied and Deliverables). Emphasis on:

  1. Integrated Air and Missile Defense: ACS Capabilities: Combat System challenges, ACS configuration upgrades (Ship Flight Configurations, Equipment Configurations, Computer Program Baselines)

  2. ACS Battle Planning and Coordination at the Ship and Force levels

  3. Anti-Air Warfare (AAW) Design competencies: Detect, Control, Engage sequences.

  4. Aegis Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD): (Integrated Tactical Planning, Search and Track functions, Control and Engage functions)

  5. Aegis Weapon System (AWS) Design Principles ((a) AWS System architecture (b)AWS Element Design: Radar(SPY-1); Standard Missile Family(SM); Vertical Launching System (VLS); Command and Control (C&C); Weapon Control (WCS); Fire Control (FCS); Operational Readiness testing (ORTS); Communication Links

  6. Aegis Weapon System functional design: Focus will be on engineering of the Weapon System including, functional design, and Standard Missile and Aegis Combat System integration.

  7. Aegis Multifunction SPY-1 Radar Design: AAW regional and self-defense needs, radar system mission factors, radar multi-mode design, key radar functions, radar functional design, radar resource management, radar engagement support, radar track accuracy radar discrimination, radar sub-elements: Antenna, Transmitter, Signal Processor, Radar Control.

  8. ACS Performance: Mission performance (firepower, reaction time, ECM resistance, Availability, Coverage); Integration of system functions, engineering disciplines, system tools, and outputs; system development approach, capability analysis for demonstrated system performance, engineering budgets.
