John Bennett holds a B.A. in Mathematics and Computer Science from DePauw University (1986, minoring in Physics), and a M.A. in Mathematics from Indiana University (1988). John began his career at NSWC Crane developing RF expendable countermeasure models. He then transitioned to IR expendable countermeasure modeling and simulation. He developed the Flare Aerodynamic Modeling Environment (FLAME), a fully physics-based expendable countermeasure fly out model, which continues to be used across the DoD. He also developed a tool for archiving and processing IR expendable radiant intensity data that is also currently used in many locations across the DoD. More recently, John worked to develop RSIMS, which is the subject of this paper. He has worked at NSWC Crane for 30 years. John is currently the Software Design Subject Matter Expert for the IR/RF Systems Technologies Division.
