1. C4I System Development and Integration
Sub-topics:

Architecture Frameworks
DoDAF
MoDAF
NAF
ToGAF
Kruchten’s 4+1 View Model
RM-ODP
Software Development and Testing
Service Oriented Architecture
Quality Assurance and Testing
C4I Systems Security
Scope: Command, Control, Communications, Computer & Intelligence (C4I) Architecture Framework provides the rules, guidance, and product descriptions for developing and presenting architecture descriptions that ensure a common denominator for understanding, comparing, and integrating architectures. The application of the Framework will enable architectures to contribute most effectively to building interoperable and cost effective military systems.
Further Topics:Service Oriented C4I Architectures, Web Semantic approaches to C4I Architecture, C4I Modeling & Simulation, System Engineering Approach towards C4I Architecture Design, C4I Architecture Performance Evaluation, Semantic Technologies for Intelligence, Defense and Security, Critical Issues in C4I Architectures, Threat Modeling in C4I Architectures

2. C2 Simulation
Sub-topics:

Serious Games
Decision Making
War-time Scenarios
Crisis Management
Cyber-warfare
Simulation Environment on BML
 
Scope: On all levels in an organization where decisions are to be taken influencing others you may talk about “Command and Control”. It is however of utmost importance to clarify that in our language ”C2” corresponds to the levels above units, where on the other hand the main training is about how to handle the personnel and equipment in real ”fights”

3. Surveillance
Sub-topics:

Biometric Surveillance
Social Network Analysis
Corporate Surveillance
Crowd Surveillance
Emergency Preparedness
Data and Information Fusion
Event Detection
Privacy Awareness
Identification and Authentication
Heterogeneity, Scalability and Flexibility
Decision Support System
 
Scope: Surveillanceis the monitoring of the behavior, activities, or other changing information, usually of people for the purpose of influencing, managing, directing, or protecting. Surveillance is therefore an ambiguous practice, sometimes creating positive effects, at other times negative. It is sometimes done in a surreptitious manner. It most usually refers to observation of individuals or groups by government organizations, but disease surveillance, for example, is monitoring the progress of a disease in a community
 
Further Topics: Infrared Surveillance, Advances in Aerial Surveillance, Aerodynamic Surveillance Vehicles, Surveillance & Identity: Human Security Vs. National Security, UAF Surveillance

4. Intelligence and Analytics
Sub-topics:

Image and video processing
Situation Analysis
Reasoning
Decision Support System
 
Scope: Artificial intelligence (AI) is the intelligence of machines and the branch of computer science that aims to create it. AI textbooks define the field as "the study and design of intelligent agents where an intelligent agent is a system that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chances of success. John McCarthy, who coined the term in 1956, defines it as "the science and engineering of making intelligent machines
Further Topics: Neural Networks, Automated Target Discrimination, Intelligent Software Agents for Software Components, Generic Multi-Agent Models

Biometric and Physical Security Systems
Nuclear Biological Chemical System (NBC)
Mobile Operation Center (Tactic Units)
Hand-held device integration
System Acquisition
Integrated Logistics System (ILS)
HTZ-Communication Planning
Geographical Information System (GIS)
Scope: Detect, identify, and mark areas of nuclear and chemical contamination; sample soil, water and vegetation for nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) contamination; and report accurate information to supported commanders in real time
