The Advanced Simulation Combat Operations Trainer (ASCOT) 7 System is a dynamic and intuitive Computer-Generated Forces (CGF) platform for use in your M&S environment. With its cutting-edge user interface, modular and scalable design, and comprehensive yet extensible database, ASCOT 7 simplifies the development of complex scenarios for your training needs and budget.

Airspace and Layer Creation

  • Create visual layers displayed on the “Map View” shared over the network to indicate special use airspaces, political boundaries, or areas used to drive scenario objectives
  • Upgrade any shape to an “Airspace” unlocking automated commands for assigned entities including “Wander;” “Wander” commands confine entities within an area offering automated movement, altitude, and speed variation
  • Load Airspace Control Order (ACO) files to have shapes/ airspaces associated with an Air Tasking Order (ATO) create automatically; alter colors and parameters to dynamically change the appearance and functionality of ACO shapes
  • Import layers, shapes, and terrain files (BMNG, LandSat7, OSM, DAFIF, 2525B, DTED, and others) to enhance the exercise experience and take full advantage of ASCOT 7’s physics and geographic-based modeling of entities

Dynamic Scenario Creation and Editing

  • Create exercises from dynamic driver inputs which can be edited and saved to use for repetitive training or combined with other exercise files to build a large force scenario
  • All commands can be edited, copied, or deleted; each detail of a command can be altered to execute a unique entity response creating realism and supporting training objectives
  • Flexible and straightforward UI provides numerous ways to edit a scenario from basic heading, altitude, and speed commands to scripting IFF transponder changes or RADAR beam frequency alterations
  • Stacked automated commands reduce driver workload and increase role playing efficiency; automated entities perform commands in sequence based on the drivers time table

Data Link Modeling

  • Fully integrates with live operational systems to transmit and receive data link packet information; simulates Link16 and Link11 network architecture to provide realistic data transfer from link capable entities to real-world equipment
  • Comprehensive UI gives drivers the ability to model entities operating in a tactical link environment providing operators with data link feedback, automated link responses, and tailored message sets
  • Drivers can use geographic factors, transmitter limitations, or jamming to initiate link troubleshooting training; or remove all interruptions to focus on process and procedures
  • Comprehensive data link message library from MIL-STD 6016E and STANAG 5516 Ed 6
  • Emission tracking to link conversion shares line-of-bearing indications of tracks to other link participants internally and externally connected through the exercise network

Database Editing

  • Databases can be edited during scenario creation or at exercise runtime to alter future created entities; edit entity parameters, munitions, expendables, systems/sensors, resources, and more
  • Quickly duplicate entities and edit to create operational modifications, foreign variations, or expand the database by building unique systems or advanced modernized equipment
  • Add or remove database elements to create customized libraries catered to specific exercises, designed for software/hardware integration, or DIS and HLA compliant simulation suites
  • Streamlined UI helps drivers to navigate to database types and search for particular fields for editing; quickly alter values and adjust the exercise timeline to see the results immediately

Emitter Modeling and Track Sharing

  • Advanced emitter customization including beam parameters, frequency, effective range, clutter, plot loss, scan specification, and Area of Probability (AOP)
  • Simulate Air Traffic Services (ATS) information through an ASTERIX capable RADAR; data can be used to stimulate correlation and tracking software and equipment referencing simulated entities
  • RADAR generated data simulates real-world RADAR, Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) interrogators, Automated Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B), and strobe indications
  • Fully functional RADAR Cross-Section (RCS) modeling, when combined with ASTERIX based RADARs provides advanced track detection and interrogation training environments
  • Establish auto-tracking criteria by activating a particular emitter’s beam based on the identification and distance of a target to the system; replicate individual fighter timelines for training

Groups and Integrated Air Defense System (IADS)

  • Group entities together to form entity owned internal networks sharing track information, sensor data connection, and distributed munition control
  • Simulate real-world IADS systems by assigning entities to particular roles within a Surface-to-Air (SAM) battery, functioning as air surveillance, battle management, and weapons controls
  • Link together different environment types to model state-of-the-art integrated networks; attach airborne early warning to multiple ground systems defending multiple geographically separated locations
  • Simple visual UI gives drivers the flexibility to design, build, edit, and remove groupings/ IADS quickly and easily during exercise execution; drive individual engagements or allow automated entities to prosecute targets

Transponder Notifications and Jamming Events

  • Complete control over IFF transponder and signal transmission states; assign Modes 1-5 and Mode C, alter system operation, change codes, or script transmission states to occur at specific times and locations
  • Attach interrogators or transmitters to any entity to send out erroneous codes or transponder states supporting tactics, techniques, and procedures for tracks of interest
  • Add a jamming system at any time to any entity; edit the range, azimuth, elevation, frequency, and beam parameters [Including Pulse Repetition Frequency (PRF) and Effective Radiated Power (ERP)]
  • Easily model self-protection systems by establishing auto jamming rules based on the identification of the target entity or the distance of the received acquisition emission
