Confused about the Name?
|Dr Carlo Kopp was born in
Perth [More ...],
Western Australia. He attended the University
of Western Australia [More...] , and
graduated in Electrical Engineering with First Class Honours, in
1984. In 1996 he
completed a research
Masters degree in Computer Science at Monash
University [More ...] in
Melbourne, dealing with interprocess communications and I/O abstraction
in secure password-capability operating systems [More ...].
In September, 2000, he
completed his PhD thesis, which dealt with the properties of high
capacity ad hoc networks and
long range microwave datalinks,
and Ku-band radar apertures [More...]. Both theses
done under the supervision of the late Prof
Chris Wallace [More
His professional and career interests have been broad, spanning defence analysis, strategy, systems engineering and computer science. He currently holds a part time position at the Monash University Clayton School of IT, involving research, postgraduate supervision, and both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching duties. He consults and writes in his remaining time.
He also held a wide range of positions in the computer and communications industries, primarily as a design engineer, computer programmer, systems integrator and consultant. His best known project in the computer industry was the design and development of the first Australian manufactured SPARC computer, in 1993 [More ...]. He has also designed or developed high speed optical fibre and free space infra-red datalink communications equipment, medium speed multiplexer equipment, graphics adaptors, and miscellaneous other items of computer and communications equipment and embedded software, and performed reliability modelling of equipment [More ...].
Dr Kopp has consulted to private industry and government organisations, in areas ranging from computer and network performance, to strategy and operational analysis.
He has been most visible publicly as a defence analyst, since 1980. In October 2004 he cofounded the Air Power Australia think tank and Air Power Australia Analyses peer reviewed online journal - he remains editor of both.
His current research interests in the science and engineering domains include the information theory underpinning information warfare (the four canonical strategies of information warfare), the evolutionary impact of information warfare [More ...], mobile ad hoc and survivable networking, network integration of satellite navigation systems [More ...], systems survivability especially in relation to electromagnetic weapons, radar performance and signature modelling. He has authored or co-authored to date four book chapters, seventeen peer reviewed journal papers and thirty conference papers, one of which received a best paper award. In 2006, Dr Kopp developed and taught the first ever university level honours topic on Information Warfare [More ...] in Australia.
Dr Kopp is an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics , a Senior Member of the Institution of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, and a Member of the Association of Old Crows. In 2010, Dr Kopp received the Australian Industry Certificate award from the Association of Old Crows.
