Military Drafts MathWorks to Keynote Electronics Conference and Show

9/4/2003 - The MathWorks announced that Jim Tung will present the keynote address at this year's Military Electronics Conference and Show, scheduled to be held from September 1617, 2003, in Baltimore, MD.

Tung will draw upon more than 20 years of experience working in the technical computing software market to explore the increasing challenges faced by today's defense engineers in dealing with the continually escalating complexity of their work. His presentation, "Coming to Grips with Complexity in System Development - Collaborative Approaches Using Model-Based Design," will educate attendees on the benefits they can gain by migrating from traditional document-based processes to a model-based design approach. Examining specific examples from organizations including Honeywell, Boeing, and NASA Ames, Tung's address will describe how engineers can develop embedded systems, including software and programmable devices that can be: tied to requirements from the outset; rapidly simulated, analyzed, and tuned during design; implemented with minimal rework; and, tested and verified when implemented.

Conference attendees are encouraged to attend Tung's keynote presentation to learn specific strategies for: developing complex systems that require a combination of controls, signal and image processing, communications, and other approaches; working with large numbers of designers on programs, and dealing with the multiple products and tools they utilize; implementing the designs in some combination of hardware and software; and, testing and verifying those implementations.

The 2003 Military Electronics Conference and Show will provide military systems designers with a venue to learn about the technologies and products that impact their designs. Including technical sessions on all levels of military component and system design, as well as software simulation and test techniques, this forum brings together professionals dedicated to the advancement of military electronics. The exhibition area will showcase the latest innovations in hardware, software, and test equipment for government and military applications. For additional information, please visit
