C4ISR Requirements, Principles, and Systems

Course Length: 24 hours total - delivered across 8 sessions of 3-hours each. Each session contains lecture and practical problems.

This 24 hour web based course delivers a thorough overview promoting an understanding and building a successful Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (C4ISR) architecture. Through technological innovation, modern warfare is conducted at longer ranges and with greater precision than ever before. Overall mission effectiveness increasingly depends upon systems and services external to a weapon system. Those systems and services fall in the domain of “C4ISR.” This course presents a comprehensive view of C4ISR systems from Global Hawk to JSTARS and the associated architectures. It begins with fundamental scientific principles, shows how those principles are exploited in various technologies, describes current systems that take the technology into the theater of war, and concludes with a look at the vision of the future “network-centric”battlespace.


Who Should Attend

The intended audience for this course includes Electronic Warfare (EW) professionals, including engineers, business development staff, and managers, looking to expand their general knowledge of the field. No prior experience in EW is required, but some background in EW will be helpful.


What you will Learn

  • Role of C4ISR in the modern military and how to measure its effectiveness
  • Theory and operations of command, control and communications (C3) systems
  • Physics of materials signatures, sensors, and detection mechanisms
  • Technologies and systems used to collect, fuse, and disseminate information
