Navy PEO IWS 1.0’s senior leadership believes that it is vitally important for all of its personnel to get a common systems engineering framework in order to inform all AEGIS specific efforts. Participants will gain a comprehensive foundation in the history, deployment, and future of the AEGIS Combat System (ACS).

Lane Fabby, Director of Professional Development at UAH, recently met with AEGIS senior leadership in Washington, D.C. to solidify the informal partnership.

USS Cape St George and USS SterettAEGIS is the Navy’s most modern surface combat system. ACS was designed and developed over the last fifty years as a Multi-Warfare system-of-systems, integrating Sensors, Command & Control, Weapons, Electronic Warfare, Navigation, and more. The integration of ACS systems enhances the capability of a ship to engage and defeat numerous multi-warfare threats simultaneously by land, air, and sea. With the Navy and MDA’s interest for a land-based alternative to AEGIS afloat and a new Air & Missile Defense Radar system, it is important for personnel working with AEGIS to accelerate their ability to understand and use Naval vocabulary.
