Hornet Update: Introduction to JDAM, LTWS and More
PLANNED FOR 27 MARCH 2019 1- Update to IFF and D/L identification system 2- LTWS 3- JDAM Next week we plan (not promise) a new Hornet Open Beta update that includes changes to the IFF/datalink identification system and introduction to Latent Track While Scan (LTWS) and the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM). JDAM in particularly is still very much work in progress with large elements to still add. This video is provided to provide you an initial understanding of these systems. Please also note that the A/A radar is an iterative process from which LTWS will be built upon to create the Track While Scan (TWS) mode and the Azimuth / Elevation (AZ/EL) modes. Once the AZ/EL page is created, then the various automatic IFF modes will be implemented. Before you ask… the targeting pod will come after the HARM is complete. Thanks, and have fun!
The Datalink and Situational Awareness (SA) Display of the F/A-18C Hornet - Introduction
This week we plan to release the initial version of the MIDS/Link-16 datalink / Situational Awareness (SA) page for the Hornet. This is a basic, introduction video to get you started understanding the system. Later, once the datalink is feature complete, I’ll create a full academic video, interactive training mission, and an updated manual. A few notes to keep in mind: 1- This is the initial version with more features to follow like automatic IFF modes, IFF code XP and AI setup, Link-4/HARM/FLIR display options, declutter options, flight ground target markers, basic ROE indications, MIDS voice, and a few more. 2- The logic that determines when a target is own-ship classified unknown, hostile or friendly is determined by an ROE matrix of factors. In this initial release it will be determined by Mode 4, but later we will probably factor in NCTR and SURV. 3- An NCTR print requires an L&S or STT lock, therefore I was unsuccessful in the print attempt. My error. 4- Friendly PPLI data is always fuel state, not range. 5- Later with the TXSDSG, it will be based on flight TGT ground designations, not necessarily WPDSG (it can, but not always). 6- I did not show it, but the static SAM threat rings will be included in the version this week. 7- Sorry for the low energy, I’m recovering from a cold and I’m dead inside. - Wags
DCS: F/A-18C Hornet - SA Page, Pilot Identification (PLID)
In an upcoming Open Beta we will be adding the Pilot Identification (PLID) function to the Situational Awareness (SA) page. PLID allows you to manually set the top half of a HAFU (your identification) for a non-PPLI contact on the SA page. The top half of the HAFU can be manually set to friendly, hostile, or unknown. This video talks about how to use this why you would.
Hornet Alternate Maverick Slew OPTION
In the next Open Beta we plan to release a new option for the AGM-65F Maverick slew that does not require realistically pressing down on the TDC switch while slewing. This video is to help set it up and understand the logic. This is added to address issues with the Warthog throttle mini-hat.
