Navy is turning to new Aegis Virtual Maintenance Trainer for a new approach to maintenance and maint ...

With improvements in ships and combat systems implementing after the U.S. Navy fielded virtual trainers, the surface community is looking for a virtual maintenance trainer for the Aegis Combat System to further improve its readiness.

The Aegis VMT is development in development with the new name The Surface Combat Systems Training Command (SCSTC, pronounced Sea-Stick), in the spring, the trainer will open to new crews seeking to become combat systems maintainers.

On Nov. 8 we will find this here, where virtual trainers were available for a long time, and they become a normal way of gaining and maintaining proficiency in routine maintenance and troubleshooting.

The Virtual Maintenance Trainer will give students almost unlimited options when it comes to finding everything from improper computer chips to faulty software code that needs reprogramming.

Stoner said that Aegis VMT will "really meet the fleet commanders desire of more self-sufficient ships, to stay on station longer and to help themselves a whole lot more"

Virtual trainers are designed in full depth and follow the realities of a human-centered landscape, and use as resources to work in a remote military field.

So the Navy began investing in equipment for the tactical side of surface warfare, also supporting the force forces on the bridge, and in the training center for the air, surface and undersea threat, so that they better practice. This allowed them more repetition without the cost of live at-sea training.

The Navy is scheduled to roll out its first virtual trainer, now that the Army knows how to combine classroom, live and virtual training with the necessary equipment, and how to balance classroom, live and virtual training. The Navy is now studying the basics of how to maintain a network and a virtual training system.

After the doors opened in the late 1980s, the surface community was very altered and the approach was changed so hard that we put real shipboard equipment on to a school, the foundation was established and it is now a model for decades.

Upon arrival, we can use virtual computing to learn more than the real code our use on ships to make the world more sophisticated and a bit more enjoyable, and now, can we take these out of the school, or, for the days or the afternoon, and shipboard sailors learn how to pass the level of proficiency that never existed.

The algorithm uses the Aegis system, which was built in 1989 in Dahlgren lab. This old lab setup involves the actual equipment found on ship ships, so students can train, and the students can only be able to get some of the equipment that suits the requirements of a pilot, but there are more problems with the handling and restoring their ships.

It's time to build a VMT series in Dahlgren for new sailors to serve as trains on a plane to a carrier and to take several routes of the Navy, the spokeswoman said. The Navy has also funded a pilot program which would bring a single-computer adjustment to an surface ship for this unique task.

The trainer is planning to extend to ship Self-Defense System, and AN/SQQ-89A(V)15 combat system; future baselines for the Aegis Combat System will be added later.

Stoner said the technology is necessary to meet the up-to-date weather and ship class evolving at various levels.

"The concept of this strategy is more about software design like the agnostic of it rides on," says her. It was a lot of our time at the expense of the hardware that drives it, he said. In the past, we're taking steps to find the bad circuit card, find the bad voltage regulator or switch or component.

This means we can train to perfection. The way we did the training is amazing; it isnt that simple, but you will get lost from our computer... And a computer should become a whole world experience, said stoner. We need to learn how to fix the softwares errors, and Ill help you with the process.

Although the Aegis VMT is still in the final phase, a few sailors are already wringing it out so that it will give feedback before April rollout.

On display of Defense News, Fire Controlman (Aegis) First Class Kirt Palmer started a training with three petty officers Third Class.

During his assignment, Tyler George reformed the room, and eventually repainted the room alert monitor. "Aegis and the 3rd Class of Georgia had to visit the police before a report tithed by the pending maintenance works, pointing to the need for the students to practice more often than not merely hands-on work, but also end-to-end procedures.

After having completed the work, I started a diagnostic equipment system and a test to find the key to repair the problem. When she got permission to fix the problem, she went back to the cell to tell the report.

When he tried to uncrew the room alert module without placing on the wrist strap first, the scenario stopped and Palmer, the instructor, was alerted about a safety violation.

Stoner noted that the system's ability to flag not just bad actions, but also safety violations is important; as a student, the failure may result from a fault, and the problem would arise from the use of the equipment on the computer. Stoner noted that most technicians do their work solo without the supervision of the department head or the ship commanding officer, and everyone is relying on the sailor to do their work correctly and without harming their own safety, their safety, or their components and systems.

Palmer said that he can train more students in time and learn more skills. He's also better known for his craft than the previous hands-on lab.

VMT simulates Aegis Weapon System (VMT), using a 3-D Simulation on Oct. 6-2021 in Dahlgren, Va. The virtual representation of the entire Aegis Weapons network provides a virtual representation of the entire equipment network of their manned equipment.

If it wasn't possible to put the experiment to the point that it was the only way that an instructor would work with around three students at a time, he would recommend the university could provide a few yen of courses or some teachers could work as they were at the waterfront schoolhouse or the instructor's or with sailorships.

I hoped I'd try to reconfigure software when done wrong. Hopefully, he'd learn things that would be too risky, to learn it before most probably, some of his classes taught you about the possibility of doing it by a second - a real april -, rather than simply putting up the hardware for days.

Palmer said that on the virtual trainer, students can get the software code to rework and the software in their own manner, from the instructor's view, in his own computer, noting only before the fact that the missing slashes or other untyped software code could have actually wiped the entire program.

Student a lot of confidence knowing that students have already practiced this on a system that cant break before they go to perform the same task on a combat component.

As long as the military complexity continues to rise, it becomes increasingly complex, which the army has become increasingly complex, so we will have to have more modern methods or we'll just be left behind.

Aegis VMT virtualizing the combat system down to individual wires, he said instructors can pick from around 10,000 potential faults to introduce into training.

Deters said that could help students to understand the cause and effect of one component being broken and affect the output on display elsewhere in the combat system.

As a way to build a more thorough learning experience, Aegis VMT also produces data that can help instructors and CSTC to refine the curriculum, as well as to create a new experience for students. This will help students in finding out a certain situation, such as whether the students are consistently struggling with the actual situation, Palmer said.

Stoner said the trainer and curriculum are also flexible enough to suit the fleet's latest trends.

As with any other way, when one and two people use to do something with their engineers, that is what he says: Awe have the power to do this, said the captain. And since there is a way to get that right away, we take the experience of solving it at sea: a ship with a particular casualty, the engineers developed a new work procedure and a procedure to solve this problem, / before it's solved / from the factory, ... I am a very

Deters said this example benefites most from the Aegis VMT: it can be applied in multiple ways, based on how many systems the Navy chooses to buy and how it wants to get use of the technology.

This classroom focus will focus on Dahlgren and the future's Fleet Resources and Technology, but it could be used throughout the sailors career, teaching journeyman-level sailors how to handle and defend casualties on ships. Such technologies could be used for the whole class of teaching apprentice-level sailors how to control young technicians, for example.

Its really limited only by the imagination of the people who want it, Deters said.

As a rule, it could be used to teach the entire fleet new practices as they develop, as Stoner suggested. The system could be used to do the earliest possible maintenance, as well as to keep sailors fresh or as a less common maintenance action when its done on the ship itself.

Regardless of the status of the maintenance, one could practice it at the VMT a week or two ahead of the scheduled maintenance action on the ship.

Stoner said the trainer could be used to connect sailors at sea with technical experts ashore using the Navys Surface Training Advanced Virtual Environment (STAVE) network. The techniques can identify the problems on the combat system, while the technical experts could replicate it on their own VMT and then help the sailors at sea find a solution.

He said that this is not something we were planning to intend but we have started to get into the idea of it now.

Stoner said that the key to Aegis VMT is its inherent flexibility.

"Although the surface navy moves towards a continuous development mindset for combat systems, you need to have a continuous training mindset, as long as you are taking those skills, we should then be able to analyze that and say, what did that change our maintenance training for? What would happen to us in the future before bringing that quickly to the classroom, but also in the waterfront, and then onto the ship?"
