3-35. Operation in Emulator Mode.
Points created using the training modes will not be available in normal
operation mode, and vice versa.
Switching from normal operation mode to training modes requires operator
confirmation. When using IPADS, the CDU will then be shut down. When
using a PC, the PC will not be shutdown, but the IPADS emulator will be
exited. The operator must then re-start the emulator. All other operations
described below may not operate the same on a PC.
When changing from training modes to normal operation mode the
time/date will not restore to the normal operation mode.
d. Emulator mode capabilities.
Verify IPADS is in the emulator mode as indicated by the white text and the word "TRAIN" at the top of
the CDU display. While in the emulator mode the IPADS CDU will not communicate with the CPNU, and
will not be capable of performing normal survey operations. However the operator can simulate:
(1) Position initialization simulation. See paragraph 3-13 for entering initial position in either UTM or
(2) Motion simulation. Once position is initialized, simulate movement by entering NAVAID or the MAP
page (press F5 or F6 on the MENU) and using the A, W, D, and X keys to simulate motion in the
westerly, northerly, easterly, and southerly directions. Prolonged depression of any of these will
rapidly increase simulated vehicle speed. Use S to stop motion.
(3) Marking simulation simulate mark operations as described in paragraph 3-21. To simulate 2-position
azimuth marking when the CDU displays OS (P1) MARKED; MOVE TO EOL (P2) POSITION
paragraph 2-23, simulate movement to EOL as described above (motion simulation). The LEN OL
indicator and TIME IN P1 P2 OPERATION xx:xx will operate as normal.
(4) Update simulation. Once simulation of mission is complete (points were marked), an update can be
simulated. Simulate motion from the last marked point to a few meters from the initial or another
survey control point. Follow instructions in paragraph 3-15a to simulate the update using the initial or
other SCP point data. The IPADS position will appear to be updated as described in paragraph 3-15c,
and the marked points will be adjusted based on their simulated total distance traveled from the
initialization point, and the error between the SCP used and the simulated IPADS closing position.
Map display capability is available and operates as described in paragraph 3-29.
Waypoint navigation is available and operates as described in paragraph 3-30, except that vehicle heading
remains pointing TRUE north.
