The Underwater Warfare
Software Simulation Toolset
Simulation Toolset
Underwater model of choice for the UK Ministry of Defence
ODIN is the complete underwater warfare software simulation combining environment, weapon, sensor and
C2, with the capability to design, evaluate and determine maritime security requirements in the 21st century.
ODIN key features
Acoustic modelling
Easily configurable
Modularised design
User selectable fidelity
Interfacing with other models
Autonomous behaviours
Extendable functionality
Validated models
Tactical doctrine
Proven Impact
ODIN provides an advanced capability to model the complete maritime engagement scenario at unit and force level.
The model has a rich heritage of development which has resulted in a consistent integrated approach to performance
assessment and algorithm development. ODIN models the detailed interaction between individual elements such as
torpedoes, countermeasures, ships, submarines, or other seabed objects (e.g. rocks, reefs) whilst retaining an execution
speed sufficient for both real time operations and detailed studies.
The model provides a ‘whole system’ approach, enabling modelling of diverse applications using one tool. It has
flexibility to model arbitrary entities in both single shot and Monte Carlo modes.
Applications Include
Fleet engagement simulation
Torpedo defence on and below the surface
Procurement decisions
Platform detect to engage
Weapon and countermeasure design
Assessment of novel concepts
Anti submarine warfare
Tactics effectiveness evaluation
Threat assessment
High definition torpedo homing
Tactics development

Scalable and Agile
ODIN’s object oriented design allows all entities, whether ships, submarines, torpedoes, mines or sonobuoy’s to be handled
with the same common interface. Consequently there is no restriction on scenario size or complexity which can be as
simple as a torpedo vs ship assessment or a Carrier Strike Group deploying ASW rotary wing aircraft employing sonobuoy’s
hunting modern AIP submarines using countermeasures to evade air and ship launched torpedoes.
Acoustic Modelling
Extended target signatures
– Targets, wakes, false contacts
Sonar processing
- Beamforming, detection association
- Doppler processing
- Tracking, classification
Multiple Fidelity
- Simple sensors, sonar equation or time series
Acoustic Environment
- Self-noise, reverberation, ambient noise
- Propagation loss can be;
Iso-velocity or Multi layer
Complex profiles using multi-path and ray bending
User selectable fidelity
ODIN allows detail and fidelity to be tailored to
particular requirements, for example;
– Single salvo, multiple salvo and Fleet engagements
Target signature
- Single or multiple highlights
- Omni directional or aspect dependent
- Hull, towed, dipping, off-board above and below the surface
Diverse use
ODIN can be easily modified to integrate into current systems and there are recent examples of controlling hardware at
sea, in real time. The model can also be combined with live assets to provide a realistic combat scenario for Tier One and
Tier Two training at sea.
Autonomous behaviours
Platform tactics can be written in C++ and/or in ODIN’S High Level Language (HLL). This
flexibility provides the user with versatile tools for controlling and developing individual
platform behaviour and determines a level of autonomous war gaming to the user for C2.
Interfacing with other models
ODIN has proven flexibility in model integration providing greater functionality.
Examples include:
Virtual Battlelab – gives the commander realistic weapon and countermeasure representations
Nereus – enables higher fidelity signal processing and time series data analysis
SURVIVE – allows better prediction of likely platform vulnerability
Matlab – allows the scientist to develop algorithms in a familiar COTS package
SIMDIS – provides a runtime interface to this graphics tool. Output can also be visualised post run
Debrief – scenario visualisation and analysis and NMEA compliant
Machine independence: ODIN, written in ANSI C++, runs under MS Windows, Linux
