Project Title: 
Resiliency of Concept of Operations (CONOPS) Driven Systems Development in Competitive and Comparative Contexts
Description: 

The systems engineering core courses SYS/SDOE 625 and 650 emphasize the use of a relatively compact, yet complete, set of operational scenarios and/or Use Cases to drive the discovery and derivation of requirements for deterministic system development. This project is to assess the resiliency of systems developed per this methodology in competitive or comparative contexts and to propose systems engineering process recommendations to improve resiliency. Key considerations include the time constants for development and fielding of deterministic systems and the speed with which competitors can identify the characteristic traits of systems and counter them, operating inside the target systems' enterprise decision cycles.

Student Requirements: 

Beyond the four core systems engineering courses, satisfactory completion of SYS/SDOE 611, 750 and/or professional CONOPS experience is desirable.
