b. These panel displays are updated continuously to indicate the changes that
have occurred in the represented cockpit panel.
c. These panel displays permit the instructor to monitor switches, controls, and
indicators in the trainee cockpits that might otherwise not be viewable; analyze
trainee performance of procedures related to use of each panel; determine if panel
switch, controls, and indicators are correct; and provide Doppler inputs to the
pilot during independent mode operations.
7-39. TARGET ENGAGEMENT EXERCISE.
The target engagement exercise (TEE) is a fea-
ture that automatically inserts events associated with the engagement of hostile
targets in response to certain relationships between ownship and the target and
trainees performance. The events include initiation of targets movement, targets
firing at ownship, activation of hostile radar, weapons hits on ownship. and system
malfunctions resulting from hits. The factors that trigger these events include
altitude, line-of-sight exposure, range to target, and release of ownship weapons.
Up to three of these triggering contingencies may be required to activate an
event. When the specified insertion contingencies have been met, the target event
occurs in the manner programmed for it without instructor intervention.
a. There are 20 preprogrammed TEE's available for training. They are available
to both the pilot and CPG instructors in the independent and the integrated modes.
Each TEE can include up to ten targets. Five of the targets are capable of moving
over predetermined routes. The other five are on fixed sites and do not travel.
All targets capable of firing weapons can articulate and fire at the ownship. Wea-
pons systems with radar are capable of electronic emissions that activate the radar
warning receiver on the ownship. Aircraft survivability equipment (ASE) aboard the
ownship is capable of foiling the respective type of weapons system.
b. All threat weapons systems are modeled after real-world weapons and perform
accordingly. Preprogramned hostile events in a TEE are controlled via a sophisti-
cated threat algorithm once the triggering contingencies have been met. For exam-
ple, when intervisibility exists between the ownship and a hostile target and the
ownship is within the effective range of the threat, the threat begins the acquisi-
tion process. If the threat is employing radar, it triggers the ownship radar
warning receiver. If line-of-sight exposure is maintained, the threat engages the
ownship. Hits on the ownship and resultant damage (malfunctions) are preprogrammed
for each target in the TEE. Breaking line-of-sight (remasking) disrupts the threat
acquisition process. Engagement and destruction of the threat also terminate the
c. Trainee (student) performance data is automatically stored during target en-
gagements. This data is on CRT pages 595-596 and can be displayed at the IOS and
retrieved in hardcopy. Additionally, data related to threat acquisition of the
ownship is automatically recorded and can be displayed by calling up CRT page 594.
d. Preprogrammed TEE sets are indexed on CRT pages 500A and 500B. Individual
TEE's are described in CRT pages 501 through 520. (See figure 7-38.) This page is
addressed via the data entry keyboard on the console control panel. A TEE set can
be reviewed on the CRT by keying in the 3-digit page number and depressing DISPL.
The displayed TEE set provides all the data related to the targets for that set.
This data includes target types, location, presence or absence of hostility, direc-
tion of travel, hits and associated malfunctions, and triggering contingencies
applicable to each target. To enter a TEE set into the simulation, key in the
