U.S. Navy Award for Cross-Platform Training Database Solution


Posted on December 2nd, 2019


Dignitas was recently awarded the Naval Cross-Platform Hypercube Enabled Acquisitions and Targeting (NxP HEAT) contract by the U.S. Navy. Dignitas will serve as the prime contractor with AER supporting as the subcontractor. This project's objective is to create an environmental and targeting database solution enabling shareable data as the Naval Enterprise trains, assesses, and certifies ships and aircraft in warfare against submarines and anti-ship missiles.


The project will build upon the Environmental Data Cube Support System (EDCSS) already integrated into Fleet Synthetic Training (FST). This provides for fast transformation of meteorological and oceanographic (METOC), and targeting scenario data for parameters of interest. This innovative hypercube approach helps to address the challenge in engineering content by providing a source of METOC and targeting impacts outside individual Navy training systems. This also reduces the burden on individual training simulation systems to produce these METOC and targeting impacts and will help to ensure simulation consistency among training systems using the hypercube. Our solution can be easily integrated into FST to provide a comprehensive solution for cross-platform, collaborative combat skills for Live, Virtual, and Constructive training at sea.


This work is supported by the Naval Air Warfare Center under Contract No. N68335-20-G-3006.
