Applied Fundamentals of Combat Systems

Course #SE3110

Est.imated Completion Time: 3 months

Starts: Quarterly


This course will survey the mission or combat systems commonly found on military platforms and explore how these systems are incorporated into the platform architecture, systems, and operations. Mission systems covered include communication, navigation, identification, detection/tracking, electronic warfare and support measures, acoustic detection/tracking, electro-optic and infrared detection, and weapons. The emphasis is on understanding the fundamental functionality and performance of the mission systems and understanding the complexities of how these systems integrate into a total system that provides a combat capability. This course is intended for cohorts who do NOT otherwise have combat systems coursework in their matrix. Coursework, content, and examples will be specifically tailored to the background of the cohort. Prerequisites: None.
