Charles "Chuck" D. Burdick

Principal Analyst

Mr. Burdick has over thirty-five years of experience in modeling and simulation of military systems and has developed and applied several different tactical and operational combat simulations to analytical, training, and testing applications for both the military Services and DoD agencies. While he has also worked with manned simulators, Chuck has focused particularly on integrating weapons simulations with command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) in large scale models. He has applied these models to training, testing, logistics, and intelligence analysis.

He has also been very active in introducing non-kinetic effects (electronic warfare, deception, and cyber) into large scale military simulations. He has pioneered efforts to represent humans and human behavior in the context of battlefield situations and reflect the unique personality traits of Commanders, explicit training and its effects on individual and unit performance, and the presence of noncombatant civilians on battlefields. Mr. Burdick is a former Army Military Intelligence officer, a Vietnam veteran, a retired Colonel in the Army Reserves and is registered with INFORMS as a Certified Analytics Professional
