This course is being offered in conjunction with the April 3-5 "SPECTRUM SUPERIORITY - Critical Enabler to 21st Century Warfare" conference at Nellis AFB.  (Separate registration required.)



Course Schedule

Monday, April 2 -- 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Tuesday, April 3 -- 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Students have the option to attend the April 3 -- 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM "SPECTRUM SUPERIORTY..." conference opening session. 

Course Description:

This course will provide an overview of modern electronic warfare (EW) modeling, simulation, and analysis as it applies to aircraft survivability. The course will cover the types of models and typical uses, fundamentals and components of models, tools for effective system analysis and optimization, and proper input and output.

Model Components
Environment / propagation
Target platform
Popular Models

EO/ IR fundamentals
Model components
IR, UV scene generation
Threats / platform
Environment / propagation
Missile warning receivers
Popular models                

Verification and Validation

Supporting Tools
Input tools
Surrogate modeling  
Genetic algorithms


The course will be taught by Dr. Greg Rohling and Dr. Micah Coleman of Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI).  Dr. Rohling has worked with Georgia Tech in the development and use of EO/IR threat protection system models since 1986.   He has led development teams in modeling and simulation of AAR-44, AAR-47, and AAR-57 Missile Warning Systems (MWS) systems.  His application of concepts of multiple objective evolutionary algorithms (MOEA) to the optimization of IR flare countermeasures, and AAR-47 MWS algorithms has lead to fielded flare patterns and MWS Operational Flight Programs (OFP).  He currently leads the Machine Learning, Missile Warning and Software Development branch of the Electro-Optical Modeling and Analysis Group at GTRI supporting Army, Navy and Air Force customers in the development modeling and simulation capabilities.  Building on a career of EW and ELINT in the US Navy, Dr. Coleman studied combinatorial mathematics at The University of Florida before joining GTRI in August 2008.  He has since supported multiple projects in EW M&S and test support.  Dr. Coleman is currently associate branch head for the Electronic Warfare Analysis branch at GTRI.
