SHIP'S CONTROL TEAM TRAINER
The emergency ship control team trainer is
configured as a nuclear submarine ship control room area mounted on a hydraulically
powered motion system. Computer generated surface effects, near surface effects, wave
action, and bathythermal effects simulate at sea ship operations.
COMBAT CONTROL SYSTEM TEAM TRAINER
The combat control system team trainer
emulates the fire control system installed in attack submarines. Submarine crews use the
trainer to exercise their team skills in surface and submerged contacts tracking ,
tactical decision making, and weapons control. The trainer is driven by powerful and
sophisticated simulation software which allows a variety of submarine classes to utilize
SONAR OCEAN ACOUSTIC TRAINER
The sonar ocean acoustic trainer aids
submarine sonar operators in honing their skills. The trainer operates in two training
modes, standalone and team. The trainer in standalone mode operates independently. The
team training mode couples the sonar ocean acoustic trainer with the combat control system
SUBMARINE PILOTING AND NAVIGATION TRAINER
The submarine piloting and navigational
trainer (SPAN) provides responsive training for submarine piloting parties. Real-time
simulation is provided for piloting and radar navigation of ports frequently visited by
submarines. The SPAN trainer can create a variety of weather, tidal, current, and marine
traffic conditions for each port as well as open ocean navigation scenarios.
DAMAGE CONTROL TEAM TRAINER
The submarine damage control team trainer
provides a submarine engine room environment in which ship damage in the form of piping
failures is simulated. The simulation is accomplished by pumping fresh water through
piping systems which have pre-drilled holes strategically located. The piping leaks
represent various failures that could occur.
FIRE FIGHTING TEAM TRAINER
The fire fighting team trainer can simulate
the types of fires most likely to be experienced in a submarine engine room. The fires are
computer controlled to realistically respond to attempts at extinguishing the flames.
Other major equipment installed include:
Oxygen Generator (6L16)
A4W FIDE at NASNI
Fourth generation Westinghouse Aircraft Carrier Propulsion Plant (A4W) Fleet Interactive Display Equipment (IDE) Training Simulator at Naval Air Station North Island (NASNI).
The NIMITZ Class Fleet IDE is a full scale, state-of-the-art, interactive simulator of a NIMITZ Class aircraft carrier’s Enclosed Operating Station (EOS). The IDE will provide operators with a realistic, real-time depiction of actual EOS conditions covering the full range of normal operational and simulated casualty situations. The A4W Fleet IDE training simulator allows EOS operators to remain proficient on their qualifications.
