DAYTON, OH – Riverside Research, a not-for-profit scientific research company primarily serving the US Department of Defense (DOD) and the Intelligence Community (IC), presented “Owning the Technical Baseline” at the Big Data Symposium on September 22-23, in Arlington, VA. The symposium brought together key government and industry experts who are shaping the direction of big data and predictive analytics research and development for defense, intelligence, homeland security, and law enforcement.
Software Lead for the Radar Assessment & Development group, Brian Burns, represented Riverside Research and presented at the symposium. Brian discussed how understanding the health and quality of the technical baseline translates into maximizing performance and reducing sustainment costs for a weapon system. He shared results from the tools and models developed under a current Riverside Research funded research and development project that provides assessments and new insights into the configuration, requirement, and hardware baselines for a weapon system.
In addition, Program Lead for the Radar Assessment & Development group, Farhaan Razi, will present this information at the 19th Annual National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) Systems Engineering Conference on October 24-27, in Springfield, VA. This conference will explore the various roles of systems engineering from all aspects and will bring industry professionals together to work on effective solutions to achieve a successful and affordable weapon system.
Both events will not only demonstrate Riverside Research’s technical excellence, but it will also help gather feedback and information for current and future projects. For more information about both events, visit www.bigdataevent.net and www.ndia.org/meetings/7870.
