Abstract
KETRON INC. PROPOSES TO DESIGN AN ALL PURPOSE HARPOON MISSILE TRAINER THAT TAKES FULL ADVANTAGE OF THE NAVY'S STANDARD DESK-TOP COMPUTER, THE ZENITH 248. KETRON'S APPROACH ELIMINATES THE NEED FOR A MAN-IN-THE-LOOP BY INCORPORATING THE FOLLOWING COMPONENTS TO AUTOMATE COMPUTER-BASED HARPOON TRAINING: INTERROGATOR, ADVISOR, INSTRUCTOR, AND EVALUATOR. THE INSTRUCTOR COMPONENT PROVIDES A DYNAMIC TUTORIAL ON HARPOON EMPLOYMENT, AN EXERCISE GENERATOR THAT PROVIDES FLEXIBILITY IN PLANNING HARPOON MISSION SCENARIOS, AND A SIMULATION MODULE THAT CAN BE UNIQUELY TAILORED TO ANY ONE OF THREE PLATFORM APPLICATIONS, NAMELY P-3, S-3, AND A-6. KETRON INC. IS A TRAIL BLAZER IN THE DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF PC-BASED TRAINING AIDS OWING TO PREVIOUS DEVELOPMENTS OF PC-BASED PROCESS MAP (PRO-MAP) AND MAVERICK ENGAGEMENT DECISION AID (MEDA) SYSTEMS. MEDA IS DISTINGUISHED AS THE FIRST ALL-PURPOSE MISSILE TRAINER TO BE DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THE ZENITH 248.
