The Computer Display Set AN/UYQ-21(V) can also display remote tracks from
other ships and aircraft obtained through data links. Though much of the information
is computer controlled, the display console provides the operator with the necessary
interface for decision making. The Computer Display Set AN/UYQ-21(V) can be
configured to operate as part of a tactical data system (CDS, ACDS), command and
control system, or antisubmarine warfare (ASW) system.
The ships mission
determines the complement of equipment required.
Figures 4-1, 4-2, and 4-3 show typical configurations for a tactical system, a
command system, and an acoustic system, respectively. The different systems can
be combined to meet the requirements of the particular platform. The configurations
for each system are slightly different.
We selected the tactical configuration to
discuss in this chapter.
