Description

Data Centric Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Applications

John Clarke

Product Manager, Data Management Systems, General Dynamics Mission Systems Canada

The research and development team at General Dynamics Mission Systems is evolving our intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance application to ensure that it can keep pace with the rapidly evolving ISR field. Airborne military sensors are growing increasingly capable, and commercial and open source intelligence data is now widely available and of very high quality. To modernize our system has meant exploring new approaches. The presentation will describe the ISR mission, and cover some of the new development approaches, including moving a monolithic application towards data centric microservices, using open source tools to manage and present geographic data, containerization of services to allow rapid deployment and high reliability, and machine learning to improve the workflow for operators.

As Product Manager, Data Management Systems, John Clarke provides direction, vision and leadership for the system at the heart of the airborne surveillance and command and control platforms produced by the Air and Naval business unit of General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada.

John joined General Dynamics in 2002 having spent twelve years at Bell Northern Research. Prior to assuming his current role, John was the software development manager for the Data Management System for the Airbus H225M helicopter, designed to perform land and naval surveillance missions for the Polish armed forces. Previous to his role on the Polish program, John has held a number of project management and software management positions throughout the company, including the design and development of a self defense system for helicopters and the control software for a remotely operated underwater vehicle deployed with the Swedish Navy’s stealth corvette.

John holds a Bachelor of Computer Engineering and Management from McMaster University. He lives in Stittsville, Ontario with his wife, daughter and son.

General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada is one of Canada's leading C4ISR and defence and security electronics companies, with a worldwide reputation for excellence in the production of technology-based, integrated solutions for land, airborne, maritime and public safety applications. With state-of-the-art facilities in Ottawa, Calgary and Halifax, the company's success is based on strong systems engineering experience, ongoing investment in research and development and collaboration with commercial and military systems industry leaders.
