Biography


Carlo Kopp, BE(Hons), MSc, PhD, AFAIAA, SMIEEE, PEng


















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, using X-band and Ku-band radar apertures [More...]. Both theses were 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.


His current research interests in the science and engineering domains include the information theory underpinning deception (the four canonical strategies of information warfare), the evolutionary impact of deception [More ...], mobile ad hoc networking, network integration of satellite navigation systems [More ...]. In 2006, Dr Kopp developed and taught the first ever university level honours topic on Information Warfare [More ...] in Australia.

Dr Kopp is a Fellow of the Lean Systems Society, 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.
