Use cases with TAUES
• The non-commercial version of DW
– is intended primarily as simulator for shipborne helicopters
• Shipborne helicopters as an integral part of the weapon system
‚frigate‘ are not incorporated in the EZ/AZs (reference sites)
• HC as training subject is hard to cover with present means
– can be used also as:
• Simulated bridge
for e.g. F124 frigate
• Maritime Patrol Aircraft
P3C as part of a scenario
• 3D scenario display
Use cases with TAUES
• Key aspects of DWNC‘s employment as shipborne
helicopter simulator:
– At present:
• Optical reconnaissance
• ASW with dipping sonar and torpedo
• Controllable by inexperienced users
(e.g. via waypoints, no joystick or flying experience required)
• If real pilot available, HC training is possible (e.g. during GST)
– Future capabilities (due to modifications)
• Self-reliant modification/extension of game database
• Employment of HMG in AAsymW
