A NEW COURSE: Systems Architecture and Model-Based System Engineering, October 4-7
Does your EW profession involve designing systems that are extremely complex, require several teams and may be software intensive? Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is the formalized application of modeling to support system requirements, design, analysis, verification and validation activities beginning in the conceptual design phase and continuing throughout development and later life cycles. Systems engineering and MBSE are employed wherever the solution to be designed is a complex system. 

This course is a heavy-duty engineering treatise designed for the next generation of EW professionals, which will need to be fluent in MBSE. It is taught by Dr. John Borky who has more than 40 years in technical and leadership positions in electronic technology, avionics systems and architecture and engineering for information-enabled systems and enterprises. Dr. Borky is a leader in the development and application of MBSE and has instructed courses on the subject at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). The course runs October 4-7 at AOC Headquarters in Alexandria, VA.
