Speaker

Mark A. Phillips
AT&T

After 20 years in the Australian Army in a variety of technical roles including systems analyst, chief engineer (Army Battle Simulation), and staff officer Technology Development (Training), Mark Phillips was recruited to the Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center (VMASC) at Old Dominion University in Virginia in October 2000 to work on an Office of Naval Research Virtual Environments for Training project. Phillips co-founded the world's first public University Battle Laboratory at Old Dominion University and was appointed as the first battle laboratory director in January 2002 whilst conducting research for The United States Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) into Modeling and Simulation. He led the initial integration on the Joint Battle-Space Environment as a public demonstration of future warfighting capabilities through simulation of live, virtual, and constructive systems. Over a period of five years, Phillips has had the privilege of working along side teams of skilled engineers from across the United States and allied nations prototyping the future of Joint Warfighting training systems and capabilities.

In September 2005, Phillips was recruited to Anteon Corporation as the Research and Development lead for the new Joint Advanced Training Technologies Laboratory--Joint National Training Capability (USJFCOM).

Phillips has a Bachelor's of Electrical Engineering (Honors) from the University of New South Wales in Australia, a Master's in Engineering (Modeling and Simulation) from Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia and is preparing to propose his dissertation topic for a Ph.D. in Engineering focusing on systems engineering through simulation techniques.
