...Most comprehensive treatment of C4ISR, from basic scientific principles through to the network-centric vision and the digital battlefield....

Modern warfare is conducted at longer ranges and with greater precision than ever before. Overall mission effectiveness increasingly depends upon systems and services external to a weapon system. Those systems and services fall in the domain of "C4ISR ".

This course presents a comprehensive view of C4ISR. It begins with fundamental scientific principles, shows how these principles are exploited in various technologies, describes current systems that take the technology into the theater of war, and concludes with a look at the vision of the future "network-centric" battlespace.

Applications and benefits:

Who should attend:

This course is intended for managers, engineers, analysts, and operators who are involved in one or more aspects of C4ISR and desire a broader view, as well as for all those who are entering the field. For maximum benefit, a scientific or engineering background is helpful but not required. The course provides detailed examples, references, and guidance for continued application of the principles presented to future problems in C4ISR.

About the Instructor

William J. Geckle is with Johns Hopkins University where he is a Principal Staff Physicist in the Air and Missile Defense Department, Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), and a part-time faculty member at OEI. During his 33 year career as a scientist in Defense Technology he led the Fires and Targeting team for the ONR "Extending the Littoral Battlespace" ACTD, served as technical lead for several Real Time Into / Out of the Cockpit (RTIC/RTOC) programs, gained extensive experience in the development of solutions for Joint TADIL communications, and was a designer of the JSF C4ISR architecture. He also led the C4ISR architecture development for both NGA's Global Network Centric and Targeting (GNCST) program that provides tailored products in support of Time Critical Targeting around the world and for Long Range Strike (LRS), the Air Force future strike platform for penetration of denied air space. He led a transformational effort for DoD AT&L to improve the Ground Picture by heavily leveraging upstream data fusion. He is currently supporting the development of the U. S. Navy's next generation surface radar, AMDR, and the AN/TPY-2 radar program and is actively developing counter deceptive jamming technology. Mr. Geckle has extensive technical experience in C4ISR in the support of Air Force, Navy, Marine, Army, Coast Guard and national agency operations.

Mr. Geckle has authored over two dozen technical publications in areas of C4ISR and tracking. He also holds a pending patent for a new, fused GMTI/VMTI/EO tracking technology and one for Electronic Protection against deceptive jamming. He received APL's 2012 Government Purpose Innovation Award for a radar related invention. He holds a M.S. degree in Physics from Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI.
