The Advanced Research Projects Agency is sponsoring a maritime simulation demonstration which will occur from the 13th to the 17th of September 1993 on the Defense Simulation Internet. The objective of the demonstration is to show how various ARPA developed technologies can be used to increase the fidelity of simulations. Naval warfare relies on sensors and processing systems to detect, track, engage, and fire on hostile targets. These systems are unlike tank battles were visual contact with targets is needed to fire. The September demonstration will be the first distributed interactive demonstration to utilize sensor driven weapon systems. The demonstration will link the components of a carrier battle group with low frequency active search, and mine countermeasures capabilities into a realistic command and control environment. The demonstration will play out components of a major regional contingency and engage hostile undersea forces. For this demonstration, platforms and or command centers will be located at CINCPAC, CTF-12, The Pentagon, SPAWAR, NAVSEA, ARPA, JHU/APL, SAIC, Alliant Tech, Draper Laboratories, NAVOCEANO, Sandia National Labs, etc.
