Simulator for the RS Operator Using Visual Depiction

Open access

Abstract

The high operational cost of exploitation of armaments in near-battle conditions and numerous restrictions in use of the battle equipment in places of permanent deployment have contributed to seek new training methods. In recent years, there has been a rapid development of simulators used in the process of education and in-service training associated with the technological advancement and the modernization of the armed forces of the Republic of Poland. In this article, an experimental model of the simulator was introduced for the operator of manual tracking (RS) using a visual system. This model was built by the authors as part of their master’s thesis. It allows either manual or automatic tracking of targets against the simulated background and gives a grade to the operator based on the accuracy achieved while tracking the target. The solution suggested by the authors may raise the effectiveness of training of operators using television- optical systems, as well as reduce the associated operating costs of the weaponry.
