Abstract:

The AMRL RPV System Simulation and Research Program was initiated in response to requirements for support of the design of the man-machine environment interface of AF RPV systems. The major objectives of the AMRL RPV System Simulation and Research Program are as follows 1 Perform RPV system design evaluation studies, i.e., evaluate alternative design configurations, assumptions, operating procedures, etc. 2 assess RPV system effectiveness, i. e. evaluate the expected effectiveness of a given system configuration such as its overall probability of achieving a target, etc. 3 provide man-machine environment interface engineering data, i.e. recommend displays etc. 4 test bed new technology, e.g. evaluate effectiveness of contractor designed consoles, video bandwidth compression techniques, etc. The results of the fourth simulation study are reported herein. This study included automatic RPV heading correction and position report smoothing functions in the simulation. The study employed scenarios requiring a limited number of support mission RPVs, via reprogramming, to provide coverage for a set of Strike RPVs or manned vehicles . The study evaluates RPV system performance under the simultaneous effects of RPV Automatic Heading Correction Cross Track Threshold, Total Number of RPVs Under System Control, Ratio of Strike Set to Support Vehicle Set, and Display Window Sizes or Scales.
