Utilization of a virtual environment for combat information center training

Recent fiscal and personnel cutbacks have placed significant restrictions on surface ship training opportunities. As a result, additional methods of training must be established in order to maintain current operational readiness. This thesis research investigates the use of a workstation based shipboard virtual environment (VE) as complementary training for naval personnel, in particular, in the combat information center (CIC). The approach taken was to extend the Naval Postgraduate School's Shiphandling Training Simulator (SHIPSIM) and shipboard Virtual Environment Trainer to include a combat information center virtual environment system (CICVET). Using the NPSNET 4 framework, the system provides two levels of training; the first reflects the dynamics of real world warfare theaters with the capability for distant entities to interact, while the second allows for the team training of shipboard personnel, possibly in separate locations, within the same virtual CIC. To achieve our goal we built a real time, distributed, interactive shipboard environment for combat information center training. It consists of a three- dimensional CIC model, containing functioning consoles for information display, sensor management, and weapons control
