Abstract
"The operational fleet desires to achieve a netted ASW training capability for the submarine community during range operations. Through use of current underwater communication modem technologies, the submarine would be able to communicate in net-centrictraining situations thus creating a synthetic battlefield situation. Progeny Systems has technologies that allow us to uniquely propose innovative bandwidth utilization, data compression techniques, as well as other weapon simulator systems to support thedevelopment of a complete "virtual" battlefield operation. Our communication management and data compression techniques were successfully demonstrated at CTF-12 during the Advanced Undersea Warfare Concept (AUSWC) system demonstration in August 2000. Ourdata compression techniques were specifically designed to provide battle group connectivity for the submarine using legacy 2400-baud communication links. Through the adaptation of these data compression, data prioritization and data extraction algorithmsto the underwater communication modem technology, we will enable the submarine to participate in netted tactical training operations. Our Phase I research evaluated internet-gaming technologies to further enhance the submarines ability to participate inthis limited connectivity environment thus providing a reliable, efficient connectivity Advanced Training Capability.BENEFITS: Progeny Systems is in a unique position to define and construc
