Widespread availability of top-line military
technologies make the development of actually
integrated combat systems a top priority. Existing
system solutions have evolved separately with
humans in the loop and manual interfaces in
response to community driven, rather than joint
operational, requirements. The shortened reaction
times and ambiguities in operations require that
such an integration be designed into the system to
yield the capabilities needed beyond the sum of the
parts. The course is recommended for managers,
scientists, and engineers interested in the concept
definition, design, and development of computer
integrated combat systems that facilitate the
execution of joint operations. The instructor’s text,
Systems Management, will be supplied to each
attendee along with a set of lecture notes.
Dr. Joseph C. Hassab has over 25 years of
experience in government and industry where he
has been President and Director and has overseen
the definition and development of large and
complex systems. He has published over 100
journal papers in various aspects of systems
analysis and synthesis, sonar/radar signal and data
processing, wave propagation, electromagnetic
scattering, ocean channel modeling, contact
localization and motion analysis, weapon
targeting, numerical analysis, and expert systems.
Dr. Hassab is the author of two books, Underwater
Signal and Data Processing, and Systems
Management: People, Computers, Machines,
Materials. He has been a referee for several
technical journals and taught courses on radar,
sonar, signal/data processing, and control systems
at several universities and sponsored seminars in
the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
