Abstract
The TACOP Phase II effort will research, design, and prototype an instructor / operator-friendly solution for the LVC entity-management problem. The TACOP system will be composed of open source and government software that is compatible with Navy training architectures. The system will focus on entity-management in the Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) domain and provide the foundations for extensibility to other LVC domains. The system will be built from a filtering framework, filter controls, and an IOS interaction interface. The filtering framework will provide a place to maintain filtering activities and accept commands from the IOS. It will perform the actual reduction of entities in the data stream going to the simulator. The filter controls will provide algorithms and capabilities to reduce the cognitive and management burden on the instructor/operator. It will make the job of managing thousands of entities possible for a single person. The IOS interaction interface will house the filter controls and present visual information and cues to the instructor/operator. A successful TACOP will improve LVC simulator operations by providing a balance between rich training environments and simulation processing limitations. Operators will have aids and visual cues that make it possible to solve the LVC entity-management problem.
