MX3002 Overview of Computers, Weapons Platforms and Electrical Systems

This course will provide introductory concepts of various engineering topics to the DoD Modeling and Simulation workforce member supporting Defense Acquisition so that they can obtain a general understanding of key M&S capabilities necessary for design, analysis, and maintenance of computers, weapons platforms, and Electrical engineering systems. The topics covered in the course include wave propagation, modeling and simulation approaches to complex system design and assessment, fundamentals of computer software and its limitations, basic concepts in electrical engineering and electrical machinery, and the fundamental issues involved in C4ISR systems. Upon completion, students should have basic understanding of the wide range of engineering concepts that are essential for physics-based engineering M&S. This course may not be used to fulfill ME/AE degree program requirements.
