Abstract:

An SH-60 helicopter incorporation the Light Airborne MultiPurpose System LAMPS MK III was tested using the ANSRO-4 UHF secure data link to ANSQQ-28 Sonobuoy Processor at the Naval Air Test Center NATC Patuxent River, MD. During the time the helicopter was on the simulated mission, it dropped sonobuoys and received normal mission feedback. This was done during testing of a potential wide-area network, with the acoustic stimulation for the LAMPS MK III accomplished by passing control and acoustic information from an ANNSQQ-89 On-Board Trained OBT at Patuxent River via an on-site data link network. A master control unit was used to drive NATCs OBT from Fleet ASW Training Center, Norfolk, over normal telephone lines. Multiple OBT connections from the master control unit are possible and will further team training by combining expertise located at another training center with all other connected assets. Other additions to the OBT interface will provide additional aircrew radar training via the AN APS-124 Remote Radar Operator REMRO system and EW software upgrades. The OBT is used at NATC in evaluation of helicopter ASW subsystems as well as for training.
