About the Presentation
The topic of Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) Simulation has been discussed and in some cases realized over the past 20+ years. The fundamental difference between past approaches and now is the depth of integration required to support the stimulation of federated mission systems and sensors to permit realistic test, training and rehearsal for Air Crew and others. The presentation will cover the rationale for LVC, the challenges and the successes to date with a look to the near future.

About the Speaker
Mark is an engineering professional with over 20 years of active military service as an Officer with the Australian Army and the Royal Australian Air Force. Some of his prior roles were Chief Engineer for Combat Simulation & Staff Officer Training Technology (Australian Army), Battle Laboratory director VMASC Old Dominion University and Department Head for R&D Joint Advanced Training Technologies Laboratory – Joint National Training Capability. Mark is currently performing as the Chief Engineer for Live, Virtual & Constructive (LVC) technology for Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training in Orlando, FL. and is the Principal Investigator on LVC and integrated training solution for the F-16 and F-35 aircraft. In this role, Mark develops the next generation Live training solution for 4th and 5th generation aircraft. Mark holds a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering Degree (Honors) from the University of New South Wales and a Master of Engineering (Modeling and simulation) from Old Dominion University. He is a graduate of the Royal Military College of Australia.

About the Presentation
Navigating a successful technical career can be challenging, especially for engineers who are creative thinkers (or who want to be!) but find it difficult to identify/obtain opportunities to innovate within their company. This presentation will look at the conditions needed to foster creativity, different categories of innovation, and the attributes needed to become a long-term innovator. It focuses the audience on self-awareness: identifying one’s own attributes and recognizing them as contributing or detracting from one's ability to be a technical innovator. We will then compare and contrast three specific technical disciplines (Architect, Systems Engineer, and Technical Leader) and discuss how to grow your career and be recognized as a strong leader in each.

The Navigating Your Technical Career presentation was developed by Julie Miller, a Lockheed Martin (LM) Senior Fellow with over 35 years of experience as a Systems Architect. The presentation has been ranked as the highest scoring presentation at the LM Leadership Development Program (LDP) conferences, where it has been taught for the last five years. Its message has been incorporated into LDP guidelines. It has also been presented by request at LM Advanced Technology Laboratories (ATL) and in multiple briefings across LM Business Areas. While designed for technical leaders in LM, the lessons are valid across technical domains and industries.

About the Speaker
As a part of Lockheed Martin (LM) Mission Systems and Training and working out of Suffolk, VA, Lisa has lead research and development programs that leverage and integrate capabilities across Lockheed Martin organizations for 18 years. She is currently a Principal Investigator for the Advanced Simulation Centers, and has previously supported LM roles as an Experimentation Lead, Operations Analyst, and Enterprise Architect.

Throughout her career, Ms. Izumi has led several critical cross-corporate initiatives for Lockheed Martin Corporation supporting both Intel and Warfighting communities, largely in the ISR, Communications, and Training domains with an enterprise architecture focus. She has specialized in cross-corporate horizontal integration and developing cultures of innovation. Currently Lisa is pursuing her Ph.D. in Modeling and Simulation from Old Dominion University to further her BS and MS in Physics from University of Colorado and Binghamton University.

About the Presentation
Today's weapon systems are extremely sophisticated and as more advanced technology is incorporated into their design, they will be even more complicated. A significant amount of effort is expended by the government into determining mission need requirements and designing a notional architecture for a new weapon system. However, associated training requirements are often oversimplified. Training related RFPs, proposals, and front end analyses (FEA) are often undertaken without a true understanding of methodologies used to determine actual training requirements. This presentation will describe a process that uses information from the Department of Defense Architectural Framework (DODAF), the Tactical Scenarios (TACSITs) derived from the Weapons System’s Concept of Operations (CONOP) and the Mission Essential Task List (METL) to determine initial requirements that serve as a foundation for developing a total training system.

About the Speaker
Dr. Dennis Duke was a NAVAIR Research and Engineering FELLOW since 2004 who recently retired from the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) after working there over 35 years. He is a Senior Executive Management Development Program (SEMDP) graduate (1994) who worked as a training element manager, an integrated logistics support (ILS) manager, a project manager, a training analyst and a branch head. During his career he has worked on various projects for the US Army, US Navy (surface, subsurface and aviation), US Marine Corps, US Coast Guard, as well as other government agencies.
During the last 10 years of his career he was primarily involved with the training system development for unique portions of the P-8A Poseidon, a new surveillance aircraft procured by the US Navy. His aviation experience includes significant training system analysis and development efforts on the EP-3E Orion, the E-6B TACCAMO and the Aerial Common Sensor (ACS) aircraft platforms. This experience included undertaking analyses for pilots, mission crew, reach back support analysts, and aircraft maintainers.
Dr. Duke received a BA in Communications and a BS in Education from Penn State University, a MA in communication systems from Ohio University, a MBA in acquisition management from Florida Institute of Technology, a EDS and EdD in administration from the University of Central Florida. He has been working as an adjunct professor since 1982 at the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) and Nova Southeastern University (since 1987). He teaches a wide variety of graduate courses in management science, organizational behavior and human resources. He is currently teaching graduate courses in supply chain management, logistics systems engineering and organizational behavior.
