Modelling Undersea Warfare Scenarios
The development of TacSim™ between AOS and DST Group has led to a unique capability for analysis of submarine capability, or of undersea warfare and naval technology more generally.
This includes the interaction between the physical capabilities of the vessels, their sensors and weapons, and the operational tactics employed by both friendly and opposition forces.
The TacSim™ submarine simulator system is also capable of integrating integrations with additional maritime actors, aircraft and naval subsystems.
Open Design Architecture
Due to its distributed, open, agent-based architecture, TacSim™ allows for the inclusion of various submarine kinematic and dynamic models, and sensor and weapons models. It has the potential to expand its scope with a library of models to represent physical maritime
platforms, and related naval technology.
This includes submarines, ships, fixed wing aircraft and helicopters, and detailed modelling of passive and active sonar and other systems.
TacSim™ has been used to evaluate a wide range of underwater warfare scenarios and engagements and is continuing to be used by the Australian Navy as a submarine simulator and for further naval technology studies.
