Action speed tactical trainer
CAE's action speed tactical trainer (ASTT) is a comprehensive simulation-based system that facilitates the conduct of realistic naval operations training. The ASTT comprises a network of computers used as player workstations, and game control stations. The player workstations can be configured to simulate ships, submarines, aircraft, or shore-based sites. The game controller defines a scenario that includes the gaming area, atmospheric conditions, ocean conditions, composition of friendly and enemy forces, inventory of sensors and weapon systems, initial positions, mission objectives, and constraints.
The primary purpose of the ASTT system is for the command teams of ships, submarines, and aircraft to communicate effectively in a realistic training scenario and rehearse the application of tactical doctrine in situations considered typical at sea. The system caters to three levels of exercise control. The force controller can monitor their own forces while the instructor controller typically directs staff. The highest level of control is the exercise manager who can see the entire scenario unfold and has complete control privileges
