Hi, perisher anyone?

Hi there,

I'm not technically a submariner but am doing a final year project to develop a periscope ranging training simulator for the royal navy, as requested by the CO of HMS Vanguard!
I hope it's okay to post here. I found this site in my search for enlightenment on all matters maritime

I've made the basic simulator already, so need to start considering training scenarios. I'm vagually familiar with perisher, and want to use it as a basis for the scenarios of my system, but I'm finding it hard to get hold of more info.

So I'd just like to say hello!
And I was wondering if anybody could tell me a little about the perisher scenarios, or maybe point me in the right direction?

Thanks a lot, and merry christmas!

Hope I'm wrong but I feel slightly uncomfortable!!!

Hey boats,

Why not ask the CO of Vanguard about perishers, he will have seen many unless he was CO of the skimmer type battlewagon.

You're a suspicious lot - rightly so mind you.

To put your minds at rest there is indeed a bit of a project under way - Birmingham University I believe. I think its along the lines of using gaming technology to create Computer Based Training package for Eyes Only training (not exactly a tactical secret although possibly regarded as a black art by some!). Likely to be similar to the current Command Team Trainers that exist in Guzz/Faslane but without the associated hardware (ie on a PC). I've met the professor involved in initially setting up the project that Wake seems to have won as part of his/her course.

As for getting hold of VANG's CO then the MoD Operator/Global Address List doesn't exactly help us get hold of each other - and that's within the Service!

The suspicion comes from our training, to answer the 1st post in any depth on line in a forum such as this would probably breach securuity rules somewhere along the line and possibly drop a currently an unthinking serving member of the RN in the brown stuff.

I also suspect that a project of this sort, be it conducted on a Naval Base or a Uni would be covered by some security classification too and a breach would involve someone else in the crap.

Attack teachers were in existance before PCs etc so why a project that turns back the clock and use a Pc to do it?

Ask yourself or the guy working on the project why you may not be able to contact the CO of Vanguard! A couple of reasons immediately spring to my mind.

The use of the phrase or title Eyes Only suggests to me some degree of restriction and that the web cannot control.

If the post was submitted niavely, fair enough, however if it is a wind up then it is a dangerous one.

Fully understand and agree with your reservations. I fully appreciate the issues involved and to go any further into the weeds on a public forum such as this could be seen as standing into danger so I'm not.

Sorry if my post concerned you.

No problems at all, hope the project goes well.

Hi!

Gosh, sorry... I seem to have caused the wrong reaction :|

Sorry, it was simply Naivity on my part.

My supervisor has the CO's details, but... I'm meant to conduct my own research and don't want to bother either of them, so I thought if some people knew the details, or could point me to them, then that'd be okay.

But thinking about it now, my post probably was a bit stupid.

Here's a screenshot of my system so far...
