Conning Officer Virtual Environment (COVE)
A Navy Conning Officer is the most junior officer in the bridge and is in training to become Officer of the Deck. Originally conceived in 2000 as a Research and Development (R&D) effort COVE has grown into an extensible ship handling simulator primarily used at the Surface Warfare Officers School (SWOS). Now COVE trainers can be found in many different locations such as; Naval Special Warfare Center (NSWC) in Panama City, Littoral Combat Ship Based Training Facility in San Diego, and at the Surface Warfare Officers School (SWOS) in Rhode Island.
The COVE (Conning Officer Virtual Environment) program is a PC-Based maritime training simulator for navigation, seamanship and ship handling. The trainer can be used as a stand-alone individual trainer, single ship bridge team trainer, and an integrated multi-ship team trainer. With integrated technology the trainer offers 360 degree out the window display, tactical and emulated hardware and speech recognition.
KAEGAN currently provides Program Management, Sr. Systems Engineering, and Visual System Acquisition support to the COVE program. Program Management support involves preparing and coordinating IPT meetings, reviewing financial status reports, and reviewing and accepting CDRL(s). Systems Engineering support involves assisting with the development of acquisition strategies, creating acquisition documents, and performing testing on the trainer. Visual Systems support involves the development and quality control of the harbor data bases. This includes creating the models that are used in the simulation such as; Navy ships, aircrafts and actual harbors images.
