C4I and Cyber Ctr Seminar Series: Validating a Command and Control Simulation Interoperation Standard

Presented by:
Dr. Mark Pullen,
C4I & Cyber Center
Director, C4I & Cyber Center

Technical Activities in the NATO MSG have conducted a sustained effort to develop a standards-based capability for coalitions to interoperate their national command and control (C2) and simulation systems collectively. This form of multinational interoperability can have a great impact on the effectiveness of coalition military operations.

Dr. Pullen is Professor of Computer Science and Director of the Center of Excellence in Command, Control, Communications, Computing, Intelligence (C4I) and Cyber at George Mason University. Previously, he managed Internet and Distributed Simulation programs at DARPA and was an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at the US Military Academy West Point, NY. He serves as Co-Chair of the SISO Product Development group for C2SIM. Dr. Pullen is a Fellow of the IEEE, Fellow of the ACM, and licensed Professional Engineer. He was a leader in the team that received the NATO Scientific Achievement Award for 2013 and has had a significant role in NATO MSG-048, MSG-085, MSG-145 and in MSG-145 C2SIM testing at NATO CWIX 2017 and 2018. He is a recipient of the IEEE Harry Diamond Memorial Award “for designing and developing a worldwide network supporting distributed simulation and command control technology for the Department of Defense.” He received the Defense Superior Service Award on retirement from the U.S. Army. He is the author of over 150 publications, including the book, “Understanding Internet Protocols (Wiley, 2000) and developer of two open source software packages, the Network Workbench and Network EducationWare.
