Abstract:

Training of military forces is essential to prepare our military to be successful in combat. Research and analysis has revealed that the Navy currently has a gap in its ability to train against Fast Attack Craft FACFast Inshore Attack Craft FIAC attacks. The objective of this capstone project was to research current training capabilities, determine training requirements, determine what training gaps remain based on analysis of a prototype laser-based training system, and provide recommendations to meet the needs for a Navy live-simulated training environment. Currently, there is no single technology that can satisfy all training needs and requirements of the Navy to defend against this threat. Recommendations include further evaluation of the prototype system, using the prototype during certain training exercises, and blending several technologies into one combined training system. Laser-based technology can benefit the Navy when used in the right training scenarios and with the correct blend of technology.
