.   There are some fundamental aspects of maritime simulation training that will remain the same, specifically its use in providing a forum for people to demonstrate their understanding of navigational and watch keeping practices in situations they might encounter at sea.  However, as simulation technology has improved, and specifically the fidelity of the physics engine and visual displays, the ability to use simulators in more specific industry applications that go beyond just training and certification is happening. The shipping and offshore industry has started to accept simulators as a

with SUNY Maritime to build a first-class simulator on campus that would not only benefit cadets, but would benefit our employees. We’re going to do our training here with our captains and mates.”   The simulation center is the latest in Kongsberg’s Polaris Bridge Simulation technology, and it was funded by a gift from Bouchard Transportation, the largest independently owned ocean-going petroleum barge company in the Unieed States. It offers full mission bridge simulators, instruction stations and a de-briefing area, where instructors can discuss topics regarding navigation

Maritime's Digital Transformation & Simulation-based Training

Nearly 200 delegates from across the world gathered in Den Haag, The Netherlands in September 2017 to hear about the latest developments in maritime training based on state-of-the-art simulation technology. The three-day Kongsberg UC2017 International Maritime Simulation User Conference brought attendees up to date on developments in digitalization, maritime training, navigation technology, maritime operations simulation and the use of virtual reality in training. Tom Mulligan reports.   New digital technology and advanced simulation are set to improve modern education and training methods

Simwave Maritime Center of Excellence Opens

Digital have completed the Site Acceptance Test (SAT) of one of the largest, most advanced maritime simulation suites ever delivered. The SAT, which took place January 19, means that the new Simwave Maritime Center of Excellence in Barendrecht, Rotterdam is now fully operational. As the sole simulation technology partner in the development of the unique Simwave facility, Kongsberg Digital delivered the full scope of work in accordance with the contract awarded in April 2017, which represented one of its most extensive deliveries to date. Following the SAT, all technical aspects of the delivery, a

Kongsberg to Deliver Fisheries Training Simulator

Kongsberg Digital has signed a contract with Lofoten Vocational School for development and delivery of a complete new K-Sim Fishery Simulator with fish finding and fish catching applications. The simulator will be based on sophisticated Kongsberg K-Sim simulation technology and market-leading Kongsberg Maritime (SIMRAD) professional fishery equipment, including echo sounders, sonars and trawl monitoring systems. Demand for a fishing vessel specific simulator, integrating all key operations on board has grown in recent years, based on implementation of new STCW requirements (STCW-F), advancement in
