    The US Navy training community has very high performing instructors and training systems; however, it is often necessary to fly students to specific physical locations to achieve those benefits. The Virtual Schoolhouse uses an immersive 3D virtual experience to allow a distributed student body to achieve the same benefits (i.e. access to physical instructors and trainings systems) but without leaving their home ports.

    The talk is meant to give attendees an insight into the challenges and opportunities created by the Open Systems Architecture (OSA) and COTS paradigm. It will discuss the reasoning behind this paradigm, design philosophy, major components, and through life sustainment of these systems. Read More

    Supreme is a concept-design tool for submarines. I will be going into the following subjects:

    • Why are we building this tool
    • What has been our approach
    • What is the structure of the tool -  and why this structure
    • What areas of expertise will be calculated
    • The novel approach used for the design of the internal arrangement of submarines (developed together with RhinoCentre.nl & de-de.nl)

    The talk will be concerned with methods of mesh truncation in acoustic fluid-structure interaction problems.  In order to obtain an accurate solution, a condition that simulates the Sommerfeld radiation condition must be applied at the truncated boundary.  We discuss two commonly-used methods and their implementation in our acoustic finite element modelling tool.

    Most of the military community know today's operational AUVs, such as HUGIN and REMUS, mainly as tools for mine countermeasures. That has indeed been the target for much of the development. But in recent years, core technologies from military AUVs have been migrated to civilian applications, and this development has in turn enabled new military roles. A pertinent example is the HISAS synthetic aperture sonar. Developed for reliable detection and classification of modern mines and IEDs, the sensor originally had a limited depth rating of 1000 metres. Civilian applications have now pushed the development of HISAS to a depth rating of 4,500 metres. This opens up possibilities for using this technology in new military roles such as deep-water search and rescue. Read More

    The autonomous capability implementation in unmanned systems is increasing quickly. Even if it is not obvious for a general system perspective, it is clearly already embedded in sub-parts of systems which are becoming much more affordable. My goal is to increase the situational awareness about this aspect, try to suggest a way of representing autonomous levels of system without endless discussions about definitions and come up with suggestions regarding the implementation of countermeasures against those unmanned systems with evolving autonomy.

    I will describe the concept of easily deployable underwater sensor networks, exemplified by the demonstrator system “NILUS MK 2”. In such a concept, relatively small sensor nodes are dropped onto the sea floor where they detect passing targets and report the detections through an underwater communication system. I will include results from sea trials with our demonstrator system, and discuss potential operational benefits. Read More
  • Looking forward to ITEC 2016, MS&T Business Manager Chris Richman spoke with BAE Systems’ Neil Stewart, Chair of the Conference Committee. MS&T is the lead media partner to the event. Read More
  • M&S as a Service for Cyber Defence has its own breaking-points regarding the creation of simulation environments for real-life attack and defence models.  Answers to the questions such as "Why are we forced to use virtual simulations rather than constructive ones?" and "To what extent may the current cloud or virtualization technologies help us create an environment on demand?" will be explored.
