Abstract : The Interactive Multisensor Analysis Training (IMAT) system is used to teach complex conceptual knowledge and cognitive and procedural ASW skills. This computer-based instructional approach to underwater warfare is being used to improve training in aviation, surface and subsurface communities. This document is a reference guide for an audience of IMAT programmers, implementers, and curriculum developers. It discusses the capabilities and limitations of the Advanced Underwater Acoustic Modeling Project (AUAMP) model. The AUAMP has been implemented in the IMAT Active Sonar Prediction Module. The document is intended to be detailed enough to help the audience understand the AUAMP model. This understanding can help the audience develop lessons that teach useful concepts by using meaningful and realistic scenarios.
