Mariner Training in Brazil: Inside the Institute of Nautical Sciences
with computer technology, sonar and radar technology. The Navigation and Maneuvering Simulator - SIMNAV - was developed by ICN in 2011 as an aid to the teaching for the preparatory classes for the PILOT CADET exam. The first class occurred in December of the same year.“As the first bridge simulation system developed entirely in Brazil, SIMNAV is also a technological milestone in the field of maritime training, presenting unique algorithms and system architecture. It offers an ideal environment to familiarize mariners with bridge procedures. The complete bridge station can receive groups of up
Tug Safety Training Offered at Port of Milford Haven
A powerful virtual-reality ship simulation system, operated by the Port of Milford Haven is running courses to train tug boat operators from across Britain. The Navigation Suite, based at Milford Waterfront, creates highly realistic computer-generated versions of any port in the world, giving trainees the opportunity to take the controls of any vessel, including tugboats, to practice scenarios. Tug skippers from Williams Marine Services and Teignmouth Harbor Commission spent two days undertaking theory based safety training and working on simulated ‘as real’ scenarios within the port.
