Advanced Systems Engineering the future

Provides attendees with ad advanced understanding of the discipline of contemporary systems engineering including the associated product, processes, tools, management practices for an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the full life cycle of successful productservice and enterprise systems. The course places systems engineering principles in the context of the other related disciplines involved in the delivery of technical projects and the system life cycle. The two-day Introductory Core SE Course is a prerequisite for this tailored three-day Advanced Course. The Advanced SE the future Course allows attendees the opportunity to reinforce the material already covered and gain further knowledge of the entire stages of the system life cycle applying the latest INCOSE Handbook and SEBoK (, NATO Scientific and Technology Organisation and International Test and Evaluation Association approaches and practices. The Courses includes many design exercises that illustrate the application of systems engineering processes in a variety of contexts to be ready for the intelligent and autonomous systems of the future. The exercises allow practice, use and discuss systems engineering across the entire life cycle. The Course can also be tailored for both proficient, practicing and select systems engineers.

Duration: 3 Days

Delivery Mode: Face-to face and remote.  You choose how you would like to attend.

He is currently serving as a research fellow at the Air and Space Power Centre and co-authored Australia’s Air Power and Space Manuals and doctrine modernisation after completing a tour with Air Force History and Heritage Branch co-writing the History of the RAAF – the first 100 years. He is also the Managing Director of Jaime Enterprises Australia Pty Ltd. In addition, he provides technical advice to the Phantom Work International amongst others on aviation R&D initiatives amongst other research activities of interest.

He has a Bachelor in Electronics from RMIT with Distinction majoring in electro-optics, a Masters in Systems Engineering and a PhD from the University of South Australia on the experimentation of complex, adaptive systems for the profession of arms in the Information Age.

He has been a Fellow of both the Royal Aeronautical Society and the Institution of Engineers for over two decades.



Course Information

The Courses applies the latest INCOSE, ITEA and NATO STO and mission engineering approaches and practices to describe the functions, roles, design and use of future intelligent and autonomous systems, including System-of-Systems and operational effects, Kill chains and application of F2T2EA to addresses the major trends in intelligent military combat systems and use of lethal autonomy including:

  • Application of latest safety critical methodologies and ethically-aligned design principles
  • Use of advanced T&E techniques with design of experiments for commercial and military mission systems
  • Techniques for human and system optimisation during the system life cycle
  • Understanding the compatibility and interoperability of intelligent and autonomous systems and applying sound systems engineering and testing practices to systems integration and certification of new and operationally urgent capabilities.
