Leveraging STK Coverage and Volumetrics to Re-create Russian Aircraft Buzzing of NATO Ship

Leveraging STK Coverage and Volumetrics to Re-create Russian Aircraft Buzzing of NATO Ship

In both the Baltic and the Black Sea, the Russians have been accused of flying their fighters dangerously close to US and NATO ships. These situations force the ship captains to maintain their sang-froid while the adversary aircraft venture within the ship’s missile engagement zone.

Shown here is a brief video re-creation using STK of a ‘buzzing incident’ in which a SU-34 is modeled as entering a ship protection zone and flying past at high speed. STK Coverage and the STK Volumetrics object are employed to visually display the danger zone, and in particular, the Su-34’s distance from it as it approaches.

Modeling, analysis, and movie-making are all covered during STKCore(TM) Training. The next course is 12-14 Sep, Ottawa, with Earlybird pricing ending mid-August!

DRDC S&T Announces All Domain Situational Awareness (ADSA) Program

DRDC S&T Announces All Domain Situational Awareness (ADSA) Program

Although its Letter of Interest (LOI) request has been out for a couple of days, senior members of Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) took the opportunity of the CADSI Military Outlooks to advertise this new $133M program (over 5 years) to industry and government partners. It has a particular focus on conducting R&D for continental surveillance, and in particular the Arctic.

The attached video describes a Modeling, Simulation and Analysis approach to examining the capabilities and effects of several possible surveillance assets such as satellites and UAVs, as well as analyzing their possible communications links.  Systems Toolkit (STK)® is particularly adept at analyzing system of systems, sensor mixes and performing trade-off analyses of options. You can contact Wayne Ellis at wellis@agi.com for more information about the capabilities of STK®.
