Coordinate systems for a naval virtual environment

Kılıç, Aslı
The purpose of this thesis is implementing World Geodetic System (WGS) for Naval Surface Tactical Maneuvering Simulation System (NSTMSS), a High Level Architecture (HLA) based naval simulation, and also implementing body coordinate system for the ships of NSTMSS and its combination with WGS so that NSTMSS can be more accurate, and new ship dynamics models can be integrated to the NSTMSS environment more easily. To improve the coordinate system of NSTMSS these methods were used; World Geodetic System - 1984 (WGS 84) was chosen as the reference system of new coordinate system of NSTMSS and coordinates were transformed to Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) Coordinate System. Also, the terrains which NSTMSS uses created in OpenFlight (FLT) format with UTM map projection method. In addition to this, Ship Body Coordinate System was implemented as a Cartesian coordinate system. This thesis has achieved improved coordinate systems for the NSTMSS environment to increase the realism of the simulation.


Dynamic model integration and 3d graphical interface for a virtual ship
Çalargün, Canku Alp; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Department of Computer Engineering (2008)
This thesis addresses the improvement of a physically based modeling simulator Naval Surface Tactical Maneuvering Simulation System (NSTMSS), that combines different simulators in a distributed environment by the help of High Level Architecture (HLA), to be used in naval tactical training systems. The objective is to upgrade a computer simulation program in which physical models are improved in order to achieve a more realistic movement of a ship in a virtual environment. The simulator will also be able to ...
A study on conceptual modeling in simulation systems : an extended methodology for KAMA
Aysolmaz Bozlu, Banu E; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2007)
Conceptual modeling is considered to be essential in simulation development activities. However, there are only a few research studies on how to develop conceptual models. One of the important and comprehensive approaches is the methodology developed under the leadership of METU Modeling and Simulation Center (MODSIMMER) for Turkish Armed Forces. The project suggests a methodology to develop mission space conceptual models (GUKAM), and provides a Conceptual Model Development Tool for C4ISR M&S activities, w...
Federation architecture modeling: A case study with NSTMSS
Molla, Ayhan; Sarioǧlu, Kaan; Topçu, Okan; Adak, Mehmet; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S. (null; 2007-12-01)
We discuss the practical issues in modeling federation architectures in the case of Naval Surface Tactical Maneuvering Simulation System (NSTMSS), an HLA-based distributed interactive simulation system. We model the architecture of NSTMSS conforming to the Federation Architecture Metamodel (FAMM). FAMM provides a formalized language to specify the communication behaviors of federates along with their object models. Federate behavior specification is based on Live Sequence Charts. A federation architecture m...
Systematic component-oriented development with axiomatic design
Toğay, Cengiz; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2008)
In this research, component oriented development is supported with design guidance by extending the Axiomatic Design Theory for component orientation, and utilizing domain engineering and ontology mechanisms. Guidance is offered in the form of suggesting missing components and discovering incompatibilities among the candidate elements of software development, corresponding to different phases such as requirement analysis, design, and implementation. A mature domain concept is developed suggesting the availa...
Analysis Pattern of Sanliurfa Harran Plain in UML and its Implementation in Geodatabase
Çubuk, Ulaş; Usul, Nurünnisa; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2004)
An emerging trend in GIS is the adoption of object oriented concepts for both logical and physical design phases. Extensive research has been conducted on logical design of GIS and several conceptual models have been proposed. Classical data models like the relational data model have proven to be insufficient for the conceptual modeling of spatial data. Therefore among other object oriented modeling tools, a new modeling language, Unified Modeling Language (UML) has also become a popular modeling tool in th...
