The ASWTT is a complete multi-platform simulator [Air-Surface-Subsurface] created to respond to ASW training while more than one platform is involved in the mission; for this reason is focused on platform coordination and on single platform crew training.
Using the ECA-Sindel SonSim [Sonar Simulator] and a complex database system, it is possible to create complex real-like tactical situations.
Equipment consoles, equipment HMI [Human-Machine Interface] and internal logical process can be customized to match real equipment, or generic ECA-Sindel products can be supplyed.
ASWTT is a powerful complex simulator able to prepare ASW teams to be "combat ready" and therefore ready to be assigned to operative units; moreover it is an invaluable tool to test and develop new ASW tactics.
