This work describes the development of emulation designs of the Combat System equipment consoles currently fitted in the control room area of the VICTORIA Class submarines and the subsequent manufacture of the console emulations in accordance with those designs. Physical data and specifications of the actual consoles were gathered and emulations, to be constructed of wood, plastics, and light metals, were designed based on that data. After DRDC Atlantic approval of the designs, the construction of the console emulations were completed as designed. This work will enable the vVictoria capability evaluation laboratory to move toward successful set-up and readiness to conduct experimentation on facets of new Combat System concept development, including equipment capabilities, system integration, optimum equipment configurations, and human factors engineering.
