Combat Systems Engineering Crash Course, Part II Training by Tonex

Combat Systems Engineering Crash Course, Part II, is an advanced Systems Engineering Training focusing on practical combat systems and operations. Combat System Engineering Part II, covers lessons learned designed for all practitioners.

Course Length: 3 days (18 hours)

Target Audience:  The intended audience for this course is newly hired engineers, technicians, logisticians, and intermediate level SME’s and supervisors.

Pre-Requisites:  Combat Systems Engineering Part I; A working knowledge and experience in the combat systems engineering is recommended to enable participants to analyze combat operations, capabilities, problems and evaluation of new combat systems acquisitions and solutions.

Methods of Learning: The methods of learning should consist of a visual presentations, with textbooks provided, in addition to involvement of all students in practical and group exercises designed to apply principles learned to real-life issues encountered in the typical combat systems engineering arena.

Learning Objective

The objective of Combat Systems Engineering Part II, is to leverage skills learned in Combat System Engineering Part I and couple those skills with the experiences and lessons-learned from experts in the field to the application of proven technical approaches to various practical scenarios.  These approaches, along with associated advantages, disadvantages, and implementation details are discussed with engineers, logisticians and managers highlighting major take-aways for each scenario.

Topics for Discussion include:

  • Wrap and Preview of Combat Systems Engineering Part I
  • Advanced Combat System Engineering Lessons Learned
  • Key topics in combat systems design, development, integration and test
  • All phases of analysis, design and development from concepts, operational and functional analysis through design, software development, hardware development, system integration, verification and validation of major combat systems.

Combat Systems Engineering Training Part II provides the students with guidance for the following:

  • Combat Systems Life cycle
  • Activities and best practices needed to carry out each development task
  • Tailoring development activities to fit large and small combat operations and missions
  • Roles and responsibilities in combat mission planning, project or systems analysis, design, development, verification and validation
  • Activities to ensure that all the bases are covered and controlled
  • Systems engineering Templates for the development of key activities
  • Example case studies to assist the practitioner in tailoring the processes for their project
  • Acronyms and glossary terms
  • Reference materials for more in-depth reading and analysis
  • Templates & guidance and combat systems engineering documents
