Hunt/Kill Sims Are Coming

With design and prototyping of key vessel systems well advanced, attention is being turned to the skills and training Endeavour’s crew will need to carry out our deep space mission. The most fundamental skills are maneuvering the ship and maintaining full operational awareness of the surrounding space.

Civilians getting close to our nav tech?

Interesting article on "x-ray navigation" that sounds similar to our deep-space nav systems:

Navigation Reference

Reference material for navigation has been posted in LIAIS, which has been written to support training and operations. The current material covers impulse (sublight) navigation, which is the mode where most combat will happen (for example).

This is a good place to start: http://crew.isdc.network/liais/navigation/navigation-overview-574 or through the main menu at TECHNOLOGY > VESSEL SYSTEMS > NAVIGATION.

Superluminal Navigation

Superluminal navigation involves relativistic faster-than-light travel, enabling transit between star systems within hours or days.

Impulse Navigation

Impulse navigation occurs at subluminal speeds up to a maximum of 0.2C (one-fifth the speed of light). This navigation mode is where encounters with other vessels are most likely and where most tactical operations will occur.

Vessel Orientation

Vessel orientation determines where other objects are positioned relative to the vessel’s current heading. This is an important consideration for a number of operational areas as it indicates which parts of the vessel are facing an object.

Navigation Systems

Navigation involves management of the vessel’s movement in space, including faster-than-light travel between stellar systems and maneuvering the vessel around other vessels and objects at subluminal speeds.

Impulse Maneuvering

Impulse maneuvering uses the main engines to control acceleration, speed and heading.

Navigational Bearings

Navigational bearings describe the direction of an object relative to the vessel and thereby the vessel's orientation to that object.

Navigation Overview

Navigation involves management of the vessel’s movement in space, including superluminal travel between stellar systems and maneuvering the vessel around other vessels and objects at subluminal speeds.
