Abstract : Inorder to optimize the capability of today's ASW equipment, an operator must be proficient in both the technical and operational aspects of system employment. Providing adequate training to personnel, however, is straining present resources. An effective onboard ASW training and readiness assessment capability that uses available shipboard personnel and equipment is one way of meeting future training needs. This paper provides an overview of an onboard training device that is now installed aboard SSBN submarines. The various issues and lessons learned during system definition, development and fleet evaluation will be discussed, and the system approach and implementation will be described.
