Abstract:

This thesis provides a preliminary software design for an Antisubmarine Warfare Tactical Flight Simulator. The simulation uses ANASN-123 Tactical Navigation Set TACNAV display symbology and selectable graphic functions to track and localize a single fully-evasive submarine. The primary design objectives are flexibility, utility, and understandability. A composite design methodology including levels of abstraction, information hiding, coupling, and cohesion as modularization criteria is used to effect a top-down modular decomposition of the simulation. A hierarchical structure is developed and modular packaging is discussed. Some aspects of physical implementation are also discussed and appropriate recommendations made.
