Abstract:

Tests at sea and in port were conducted with the ANSQS-T3 sonar trainer installed in USS FRANCIS M. Robinson EDE 220 during August and September 1954 to determine the utility of the equipment as an AS operator and team trainer, and to determine the effect of the installation and operation of the trainer on the performance of the installed sonar. The ANSQS-T3 sonar trainer is a small, compact, relatively simple equipment which introduces a synthetic submarine target into the audio and video indicating channels of a scanning sonar. No highly experienced operators for maintenance and operation of the trainer are required. It was concluded from the tests that the trainer as presentedly designed affords excellent training for the AS team in single ship attack.
