Early systems engineering is important as the Army’s tactical networks become more complex. Leveraging Modeling and Simulation provides the most cost-effective measure to do this. Josh Fisher and Noah Weston of the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command’s communications-electronics RD&E center (RDECOM CERDEC) joined us on Oct. 21, to discuss MODESTA, an M&S tool designed to not only allow early SoS engineering, but will also streamline M&S across the Acquisition and S&T communities in order to improve cross organizational collaboration and reduce overall costs and redundancy.

Joshua Fischer is chief of the Data Collection, Analysis, Modeling and Simulation (DCAMS) branch in the CERDEC S&TCD Systems Engineering, Architecture, Modeling and Simulation (SEAMS) Division. He holds a Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University. He has worked at CERDEC since May 2013 and previous to that worked at the Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC) since 2002.
Noah Weston is the Modeling and Simulation Team Leader (acting) for CERDEC S&TCD Systems Engineering, Architecture, Modeling and Simulation (SEAMS) Division. He holds a Bachelors degree in Computer Science from University of Maryland Baltimore County. He has worked for the CERDEC S&TCD since 2012 and, prior to that, for the Army Test and Evaluation Command since 2001. Currently, Noah is overseeing the development of the Modeling Simulation, Emulation and Tool for Analysis (MODESTA).
