The Multistatic Tactical Planning Aid (MSTPA) - User Guide V.4.5.0. Strode, Christopher.; Oddone, Manlio CMRE-SP-2016-001. January 2016

This overview is designed to introduce the user to the major functionality of the Multistatic Tactical Planning Aid (MSTPA) in order to facilitate its use within both the scientific and operational maritime communities. The guide begins with installation instructions followed by a description of the major components of the input file format. This includes the environmental and propagation model details together with sensor and platform motion components. Example output file format is then described together with Matlab code to facilitate more detailed plotting and analysis functionality. The optimisation mode of the tool is introduced and described by means of simple example scenarios. Finally, the batch processing mode is described such that the core acoustic and contact generation modules may be used to generate results while suppressing any graphical output. This may be used to incorporate MSTPA into existing simulation frameworks.

User guide for Artemis with convergence and range dependence. Harrison, Chris H. CMRE-SP-2014-001. September 2014.

Artemis is a sonar performance model that calculates target echo level and reverberation in a range-dependent environment. Unlike earlier versions that were based on energy flux [Harrison, NURC Report: NURC-FR-2011-009, (2011)], this version includes caustics and ray convergence effects using a technique described in [Harrison, Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 133, 3777-3789, (2013)].

Harbour Protection Table-Top Exercise HPT2E: Contextual read ahead Harbour Protection Table-Top Exercise HPT2E: Contextual read ahead

Harbour Protection Table-Top Exercise HPT2E: Contextual read ahead. Kessel, R. ; Gwatkin, N. NURC-SP-2012-001. April 2012

This document is a read-ahead provided to participants in the Harbour Protection Table-Top Exercise (HPT2E) outlining its context, aims, and methodology. The exercise is carried out entirely within a virtual domain, using the NURC OpenSea Maritime Tactical Theatre Simulator for serious gaming. The HPT2E exercise progresses from hands-on simulation-enabled instruction about the capabilities and use of emerging technologies for maritime force protection, to increasingly realistic free-play in red-on-blue (attacker versus defender) gaming for maritime force protection. In this way integrated surveillance-plusresponse will be exercised for force escalation in security exclusion zones in ports, in order to assess and develop concepts of technology use for countering small boat and underwater intruders. As with serious gaming generally, increasing realism begins to cross the boundary between exercise and operations. Some actions forbidden for safety during real exercises, but deemed necessary in real engagements, can be performed end-to-end, under realistic constraints of time, distance, speed, performance, and within a rich context of potential outcomes and collateral risks, within the virtual domain.
