An Ontology for a Naval Wargame Conceptual Model

Naval wargames play an important role for both training of naval cadets and trying out tactics for naval warfare. Constructing an ontology can be regarded as a way to formalize the mission space component of a simulation conceptual model. An ontology has been developed to capture the entities involved in a naval wargame and the relationships among them. The ontology is defined in OWL (Web Ontology Language), using the Protege ontology editor and knowledge-base framework. This paper presents the ontology development process, discusses the decisions made throughout the creation of the ontology, and identifies the lessons learned.


A Branch and Bound Algorithm for Sector Allocation of a Naval Task Group
Karasakal, Orhan; KANDİLLER, LEVENT; Özdemirel, Nur Evin (Wiley, 2011-10-01)
A naval task group (TG) is a collection of naval combatants and auxiliaries that are grouped together for the accomplishment of one or more missions. Ships forming a TG are located in predefined sectors. We define determination of ship sector locations to provide a robust air defense formation as the sector allocation problem (SAP). A robust formation is one that is very effective against a variety of attack scenarios but not necessarily the most effective against any scenario. We propose a 0-1 integer line...

The purpose of this thesis is to analyze the air defense effectiveness of a naval task group (TG) under different coordination levels. Event Graphs methodology, and component-based discrete-event simulation modeling techniques are used. The simulation model is built using Simkit, an open-source java package, which enables the use of component-based modeling. TG is analyzed under different coordination policies consisting of no-coordination, partial coordination, and full coordination within TG, then these c...
An ontology for trajectory simulation
Durak, Umut; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Ider, S. Kemal (2006-12-06)
From the concept exploration for a weapon system to training simulators, from hardware-in-the-loop simulators to mission planning tools, trajectory simulations are used throughout the life cycle of a weapon system. A trajectory simulation can be defined as a computational tool to calculate the flight path and flight parameters of munitions. There is a wide span of trajectory simulations differing widely with respect to their performance and fidelity characteristics, from simple point-mass simulations to six...
Mathematical model and autopilot design of a twin engine jet plane
Atak, Hazal Cansu; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2020)
Fighter aircrafts have very important place in military and aerospace industry. Lots of types of these aircrafts are used according to their primary missions like providing fire power from high above the ground and support for ground forces. Selecting the number of engines and their type are dependent to these missions. Turbojet, turbo prop and ramjet engines are most preferred types for these applications, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Turbojet engines have high performance as a means ...
Rapid prototyping of cognitive agent simulations using C-BML transformations
Topcu, Okan; Yılmaz, Levent (2020-04-01)
Simulating battle management is an essential technique used in planning and mission rehearsal as well as training. Simulation development costs tend to be high due to the complexity of cognitive system architectures in such applications. Due to this complexity, it takes significant effort for a simulation developer to comprehend the problem domain enough to capture accurately in a simulation code. Domain-specific languages (DSL) play an important role in narrowing the communication gap between the domain us...
