System of Systems Engineering / Edition 1

Discover the emerging science and engineering of System ofSystems

Many challenges of the twenty-first century, such as fossil fuelenergy resources, require a new approach. The emergence of Systemof Systems (SoS) and System of Systems Engineering (SoSE) presentsengineers and professionals with the potential for solving many ofthe challenges facing our world today. This groundbreaking bookbrings together the viewpoints of key global players in the fieldto not only define these challenges, but to provide possiblesolutions.

Each chapter has been contributed by an international expert,and topics covered include modeling, simulation, architecture, theemergence of SoS and SoSE, net-centricity, standards, management,and optimization, with various applications to defense,transportation, energy, the environment, healthcare, serviceindustry, aerospace, robotics, infrastructure, and informationtechnology.

The book has been complemented with several casestudies—Space Exploration, Future Energy Resources,Commercial Airlines Maintenance, Manufacturing Sector, ServiceSector, Intelligent Transportation, Future Combat Missions, GlobalEarth Observation System of Systems project, and many more—togive readers an understanding of the real-world applications ofthis relatively new technology. System of SystemsEngineering is an indispensable resource for aerospace anddefense engineers and professionals in related fields.

About the Author

Mo Jamshidi, PhD, is the Lutcher Brown Endowed Chair Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Texas at San Antonio. He was the founding director of the Center for Autonomous Control Engineering (ACE) at the University of New Mexico, and moved the Center to the University of Texas at San Antonio in early 2006. He has been the Director of the International Consortium on System of Systems ( since 2006 and is an Adjunct Professor of Engineering at Deakin University in Australia. He is also the Regents Professor Emeritus of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the AT&T Professor Emeritus of Manufacturing Engineering at the University of New Mexico. Dr. Jamshidi has contributed globally to the field of large-scale complex systems and their applications in and integration with various control and modeling paradigms, including intermixing control theory and intelligent paradigms of artificial intelligence. He is a fellow of six professional academies in the U.S. and overseas.
