    Abstract
    The Cooperative Control of Multiagent Systems course will illustrate the various attributes needed in such systems and the complexity inherent to the design. Cooperative systems are currently limited in capacity and in availability, partly due to this so-called complexity and to the multifaceted nature of design and analysis. This course will focus on the well-known problem of multiagent path planning, with brief discussions of advanced techniques for formation flight health management. The optimization problem and its solution will be cast in the framework of dynamic programming and Markov decision processes, typical of problems of optimization under uncertainty. A discussion of the results of numerical simulations, integrating decision-making with closed-loop dynamics of the air vehicles, for both formation flight and path planning, will conclude the course.

    Keywords: Control , Cooperative Control , Cooperative Health Management , Dynamic Programming , Fault Detection , Formation Flight , Markov Decision Process , Multiagent Systems , Path Planning , Unmanned vehicle , Urban Operation

    Abstract
    This course addresses needs of radar system analysts; engineers; and simulation programmers for simple; yet descriptive models for evaluating radar system performance. The course provides and explains equations; computational methods and data for modeling radar performance at the system level; and provides insight on how to use the models in radar system analysis. No advanced mathematics or specialized radar engineering knowledge is required.
