Current Short Courses

Principles of Naval Weapons Systems

Course start:
Mon 19th March 2018
Course end:
Thurs 22nd March 2018
Individual price:
$2,800.00
Course location:
Adelaide (Mawson Lakes)

This 4 day short course presented by Mr Craig Payne spans a wide variety of topics with the objective to provide the student the "big picture " as related to basic sensor and weapons theory. Material will cover general physical theory of various types of radar systems, electro-optical systems, sonar systems, guidance and tracking systems, command and control architectures, weapon propulsion, fusing and warheads.

Mathematic expressions are kept simple such that a quick understanding of the relationships and trade-offs of different performance factors can be appreciated and determined. Considerations on how the differing elements of the Detect-to-Engage sequence could be analysed, judgments made and metrics used are also explored. All subjects will be treated in an unclassified nature.

Fundamentals of RF System Design and Simulation

Course start:
7 May 2018
Course end:
9 May 2018
Individual price:
$2,800.00
Course location:
Adelaide (Mawson Lakes)

This 3-day short course delivered by Dr Rowan Gilmore will focus on trade-offs in designing wireless systems, and show how to seamlessly move between both the circuit and system level in radio transceivers and other RF systems. We do this by looking at typical radio architectures, exploring the design trade-offs, and simulating at both the circuit and system level.

The course treats digitally coded signals in RF and IF components, and explores the compromises that are inherent in the design of a radio transceiver. From the RF perspective, the need to minimize interference from nearby unwanted stronger signals and to allow detection of a desired signal in noise is critical. Avoiding corruption of other signals sharing the spectrum is equally critical.

Achieving both together is not so simple! In wireless LAN for instance, trade-offs made to solve one problem, like multi-path reception, have placed tight constraints on other parts of the system, such as the linearity of the power amplifier.

We will interactively simulate a double super-heterodyne, dual-band radio receiver, as well as multiple components. This provides the opportunity to explore ‘what if?’ scenarios.

To benefit most, bring your own laptop computer and, prior to attending; obtain a free trial license of the Visual Systems Simulator (VSS) from Applied Wave Research at www.appwave.com.

Operational Design of Experiments

Course start:
7 May 2018
Course end:
11 May 2018
Individual price:
$4,400.00
Course location:
Adelaide (Mawson Lakes)

This five-day course delivered by Dr Mark Kiemele provides staff working in test-related fields with the skills to apply a range of powerful tools and methods to maximise the return on investment from their test program.

The course demonstrates why Design Of Experiments (DOE) is the most effective and efficient means to conduct testing of complex systems (including operator and environmental factors). DOE techniques allow the user to either achieve their existing test objectives with a greatly reduced test scope, or conversely allow the user to achieve so much more, within the original schedule and budget . The course covers the activities that must precede a DOE, including the first line of defense against variation and Measurement System Analysis (MSA). Testing strategies, such as screening, modeling, and confirmation are discussed along with how they fit into an integrated developmental and operational testing strategy.

The course is highly suited to those working in the field of verification and validation for complex systems and can be used towards Green Belt Accreditation in Design for Six Sigma through Air Academy Associates.

Electronic Warfare - Concepts

Course start:
13 June 2018
Course end:
15 June 2018
Individual price:
$2,900.00
Course location:
Adelaide (Mawson Lakes)

This practical 3-day course presented by Mr Dave L Adamy provides holistic insight to the field of electronic-warfare at the systems and operational level. It covers the basic definitions and technical and operational concepts of electronic and information warfare to enable students to communicate effectively with professionals in those fields and as a foundation for subsequent higher level courses. It uses little math beyond algebra, yet students will learn to use important propagation and jamming equations in their simple dB forms. All concepts are explained in practical, physical terms.

MSG-3 Foundation Course

Course start:
25 June2018
Course end:
28 June 2018
Individual price:
$3,500.00
Course location:
Brisbane

This four day course by Mr Gavin Walker is designed to provide the student with a detailed understanding of the MSG-3 process, complemented with a sound knowledge of the underlying principles.

The course commences with a detailed introduction to the fundamentals of Maintenance Steering Group aims and historical origins. This foundation is built upon using a combination of advanced presentation techniques, informal instructor-student interaction and formal syndicate and individual exercises.

Students are provided with an understanding of reliability and failure characteristics theory, which is necessary to understand the logic, components and methodology of MSG-3. Separate modules cover MSG-3 specifics such as Structurally Significant Items (SSI), Zonal Maintenance and Lightning/High Intensity Radiated Field (L/HIRF) Analysis.

The course wraps up with a look at MSG-3 Management issues, and a summary of the course and conclusion.
