Abstract:

The ANSQQ-89V-T On-Board Trainer provides an at-sea training environment for sensor operators, ship teams, and shipair teams by stimulating various sensors on surface ASW ships. Training sessions are controlled by scenario files, which specify the motions and the acousticelectromagnetic emission parameters of simulated ships, submarines, and aircraft, as well as related medium propagation characteristics. Creating and modifying these scenario files is a labor-intensive operation. A variety of software concepts for computer-aided generation of training scenarios have been defined. A geometric transformation program permits the geometry of a scenario to be modified to support battle group training, to accommodate changes in sonar conditions, to optimize ship time and fuel usage, or simply to produce variety. A macrocompiler permits rapid assembly of a scenario from archived segments. A more advanced automatic macrocompiler permits the simulated targets and ownship to interact with each other according to user-defined functions during scenario compilation time. A reactive target emulator causes the simulated targets to react to each other and ownship in real time, thereby providing an interactive training environment.
