Abstract : A system for simulating own ship sensor outputs for submarine trainers is provided. The system comprises of five personal computer systems operating together. These computers are interconnected such that the individual computers can exchange data and function as one integrated unit. The system provides sensor output to an external trainer through multiple STANAG, NTDS, DIGITAL I/0, and DIGITAL SYNCHROTM I/O cards. The system also accepts trainer inputs on these lines. Software modules on the personal computer systems allow the operator to configure and monitor the sensor systems as well as providing processing of inputs received at multiple sources to generate a coherent output signal.
