Abstract:

This is a highly graphic user-oriented interactive software product which will assist the user to become more proficient at recognizing and employing Navy signal flags, and pennants which are used for visual communications between naval vessels of all types. A tutorial portion of the program has been designed with a number of options, thereby allowing a user to tailor a recognition program to satisfy specific learning requirements. The program is also capable of graphically displaying any grouping of flags and pennants chosen by the user in flaghoist order. When the flags and pennants are arranged in accordance with the procedural doctrine set forth in the ALLIED MARITIME TACTICAL SIGNAL BOOK, ATP 1B, Volume II, the program demonstrates the capability of decoding the displayed signal into its predetermined meaning. The current program is resident in the Secure Command, Control and Communications Exercise Laboratory C3 Lab at the Navy Postgraduate School. Author
