Abstract: DEVICE 15F12 is a digital landmass and target simulator for surface search radar sets. It is used to train bridge personnel and navigation teams in the techniques of shipboard radar navigation and collision avoidance. The trainer provides simulated radar video for landmass and target returns coordinated with depth indicator readings and a dead reckoning plot. The trainer was designed and fabricated by AA1 Corporation under contract to the Naval Training Equipment Center, Orlando, Florida. The digital landmass and bathymetric data base was produced by the Defense Mapping Agency Hydrographic Center.
