LEOPARD 2A4 TANK DRIVING SIMULATOR PART 1. DRIVER'S CAB, PIOTR WOCKA, ŁUKASZ BURY
Abstract: The article discusses previous solutions used in the process of training Leopard 2A4 tank crews. A concept of the design of a driving simulator (formulated by OBRUM) for training a Leopard 2A4 tank driver is presented. A more in-depth discussion is provided regarding some selected structural units of the simulator cab and applied design technologies, where the required representation and all functionalities of the real object are maintained.
CONCEPT OF A MODULAR TRAINING COMPOUND, ANTONI KURZEJA, MONIKA KURPAS, MAREK Ł. GRABANIA
Abstract. The paper discusses a concept of a modern modular training compound (KOKOS) developed at OBRUM intended for training special forces and uniformed services (police, border guard, fire brigades). Standard ISO containers were used to build the training infrastructure, allowing for variable configuration of rooms. The training compound composed of functional modules is demountable and can be transported on public roads by transport means intended for moving containers. The paper presents several variants of setting up the compound. Mention is made of the versatility and modernizability of the solutions.
INDOOR POSITIONING METHODS FOR SMALL AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES, ŁUKASZ SOBCZAK, ŁUKASZ BIJOK
Abstract. The estimation of their position by unmanned vehicles is crucial for successful reconnaissance, procurement and rescue missions in autonomous mode. Determining goals and mission checkpoints allows the platform operator, and also the decision-making algorithms, to take appropriate actions. The paper presents popular positioning methods in spaces where GNSS navigation signal is not available. The potential of using such technologies as UWB, US, INS or SLAM algorithms based on readings from LiDARs or cameras is discussed in the context of small land platforms that can perform specific tasks in an automated manner. The paper also discusses the solutions described in detail in the cited literature related to the subject of data fusion from various types of sensors, which ensures greater accuracy and reliability of the readings obtained.
THE USE OF AGILE PROJECT MANAGEMENT METHODOLOGIES IN NON-IT APPLICATIONS, KRZYSZTOF BAŃCZYK GRZEGORZ ĆWIKŁA
Abstract. The article presents an analysis of available literature on the application of agile project management methods in the implementation of projects going beyond the field of IT projects, with particular attention given to short series manufacture of machinery and equipment. The definition of agile manufacturing methods as well as the principles of their application and implementation are presented and exemplified by the most popular SCRUM methodology. The results of previous works on the subject are presented, summarizing the use of the methodology and presenting a summary of the results of individual studies. A summary of the available documents is presented and areas for further research are indicated.
EXPERIMENTAL DECOMPRESSION TESTING OF AN ACETYLENE CONTAINING CYLINDER, GRZEGORZ MOTRYCZ, PIOTR STRYJEK, DANIEL JASZCZ
Abstract. The paper presents the possibilities of using a high-speed measuring camera in experimental tests of decompression of acetylene cylinders in a fire environment. Optical measuring technique was used in the tests. One of the main goals of the experiment was to calculate the energy that the fragments of an exploding cylinder would have during a fire that led to the explosion. In addition, the proposed solution was used to present the advantages and difficulties resulting from the use of measuring equipment in the planned experiment. On this basis, the research methodology was developed and verified. Specifications of the safety zone for the research team were determined, the manner and the rules of fracturing of this type of steel cylinders were determined.
