Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division (NSWC Crane) Subject Matter Expert Jason Dauby received the prestigious 2010 International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) Foundation/Stevens Doctoral Award on July 14 for his promising research in Systems Engineering and Integration.
Dauby’s research focused on the development and use of the Canonical Decomposition Fuzzy Comparative (CDFC) approach as a stable, repeatable and analytically rigorous architecture assessment method. This advanced methodology provides a more realistic and objective assessment of physical system architectures.
INCOSE Foundation presented Dauby the award at its annual INCOSE International Symposium in Chicago.
“I am honored to receive this award from such an esteemed organization,” said Dauby. “Hopefully this research aids in the successful development of advanced systems for the Warfighter.”
The research advances the systems architecting body of knowledge by offering a means to increase objectivity, defensibility and fidelity in architecture assessment. His research has strong potential to advance the state of practice, as suggested by its early adoption in current Department of Defense (DoD) studies. Several elements of the CDFC methodology are also being used by systems engineers at NSWC Crane.
Dauby conducted this research through his Ph.D. studies in Systems Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology (MS&T) where he continues researching analytical approaches to assessing system architectures.
“This award recognizes Jason’s knowledge and expertise and is a testament to his hard work and dedication,” said Dave Kuhlman, Airborne Electronic Attack Systems Division manager. “His research is already far-reaching and will continue to have an even greater impact on systems engineering and development.”
Dauby has worked at NSWC Crane for more than eight years as a radio frequency (RF) systems engineer, specializing in physics-based modeling and technology development. His experience includes the use of model-based analysis and design throughout all phases of various Air, Ground and Maritime-based electronic warfare programs.
