Abstract
The MH-60R sensor systems being integrated into the Aircraft Carrier Tactical Support Centers (CV-TSC) introduce multiple heterogeneous sensor streams of remotely linked data for which training is essential for effective mission execution. These new support centers utilize modern service based architecture and high speed data links to provide the capability to display and process many data streams simultaneously. Current training system approaches lack the scalability, flexibility and fidelity to provide a realistic training experience. An innovative training systems architecture is needed, capable of running embedded on the tactical systems as well as ashore, and having the ability to scale to support multiple MH-60R sensor suites, targets, platforms and communication links. During the Phase I effort, JRM produced a design for a comprehensive, physics-based warfare simulation environment, to be fully implemented in a Phase II effort. This Scalable, Comprehensive Simulation Architecture (SCSA) offers realistic, physics-based, real-time simulation of the entire MH-60R sensor suite, the CV-TSC station"s main sensor control, display, and analysis hardware, and the sensor datalink. This design also supports multiple scenario and sensor tier elements and provides the ability to add additional sensors with a minimum amount of complexity and cross-domain coupling.
