Tactical Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) System Training Course – Hands-on
Tactical Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) System Training Course – Customize it
- We can adapt this training course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
- If you are familiar with some aspects of this training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
- We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the training around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
- If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.

Tactical Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) System Training Course – Objectives:
Upon completing this training course, learners will be able to meet these objectives:
- Terminology associated with of critical terms associate with sensors, sensor technologies, sensor system performance, and assessment evaluation
- Identification of key performance parameters via sensor design equations
- How to adapt, and successfully use, underlying performance equations associated with sensors and sensor systems
- What are the critical performance parameters, and their rank-order into importance for sensor/system success
- Examples are reviewed (Bernoulli trials, Poisson statistics, memoryless systems) to provide tangible evaluation of sensors in real-world (stochastic) applications.
- How to interpret and analyze ISR system requirements at the subsystem and overall system levels. This includes the process of generating system design objectives and key performance parameters (KPPs).
- To develop and use existing evaluation “tools” to evaluate limitations and capabilities exhibited by ISR system(s), end-to-end.
- Which sensor technologies provide what capability, including how imagers (EO/IR), radar, laser radar, and other sensor modalities function within tactical ISR systems.
- How to consider false alarms while maintaining an acceptable level of detection probability via working the “trade-off space”.
- Design rules associated with object detection, tracking, and identification
- How to manage distributed ISR assets and implement successful exfiltration of vital sensor data products to users that require such (actionable timeliness).
- How to support seamless integration of ISR system(s) to situational analyses and common operating (COP) architectures, such as C2PC or FalconView.
- Which effective set of “analysis” tools exist that can aid in evaluating ISR components, systems, requirements verification (and validation), and/or effective deployment and maintenance of an ISR system.
- Discussion of standards that provide value-added capabilities, including: sensor harmonization and sensor web enablement (SWE) technologies.
