A model of a real-time simulation of a Remotely piloted VehicleDrone Control Facility RPVDCF has been constructed using SAINT, a totally digital man-machine modeling and simulation technique. The real-time simulation consists of a mock-up of a DCF, where actual operators control the flight of simulated RPVs through the use of cathode ray tube CRT displays of RPB flight paths and parameters. The SAINT model consists of two interacting components. The state variable component of the model duplicated the simulation of RPV flight of the real-time simulation. The task-oriented component represents the control and decision tasks performed by the DCF operators. The interactions between the components include models of the presentation of mission status information to the operators and the processing of commands sent to the RPVs by the operators. Through input values, the generalized SAINT model is made specific to one group of operators performing one mission of the real-time simulation. This mission is simulated using SAINT. The simulation results are evaluated by comparing them with the mission performance output obtained from the real-time simulation.
