The Ship Bridge Simulator is our leading solution for Ship Bridge operators’ training developed according to STCW.
As spin off Company from a top level Research Institution, the University of Calabria, we are able to think differently providing both disruptive and incremental innovation and that’s the spirit of our Ship Bridge Simulator. Our mission is to invest in values and create innovation side by side with our customers.
Seamless Augment Trainees Skills & Capabilities
High realism and training effectiveness are achieved through the use of enabling technologies and methodologies and through ad-hoc customization according to customers’ needs:
An advanced training experience based on STCW requirements
Our Ship Bridge Simulator, designed for bridge operators’ Education & Training, provides the users with a state of the art solution in terms of accuracy and realism not only for the ships motion at sea but also for the onboard instrumentations, including Radar ARPA, ECDIS, GMDSS and navigational aids.
Simulating Complex Scenarios and Environments like in the real world
The Ship Bridge Simulator is equipped with all the instrumentations that trainee can usually found on board real ship to provide an effective and realistic training.
Equipment, consoles and workstations are installed, mounted and arranged in a ship-like manner.
The system is characterized by a modular and flexible architecture in terms of future expansions allowing an easy integration of new students’ stations and new training scenarios.
Bringing Reality Into Simulation
The Steering Console includes control units for different types of ships such as: traiditional main engine, FPP/CPP, tunnel thrusters, azimutal thrusters, etc.
The simulation of own ship and target ships is based on a mathematical model with 6 degrees of freedom.
Control units are provided by KWANT CONTROLS, a specialist supplier of nautical controls since 1937 with more than 60.000 controllers installed.
The ECDIS console is equipped with the EGLOBE G2 ECDIS system already certified by DNV. The ECDIS, in addition to all the functionalities needed for navigation planning and control, is already developed to work on touchscreen technology and meets all the IMO digital navigation regulations.
Multiple Configurations for Multiple Needs From initial training to Full Mission Ship Bridge Simulator
Examples of possible configurations
This configuration can be used to carry-out port assessment operations with the aim of understanding port potentials and operating efficiency.
Starter Ship Bridge Simulator
This configuration can be used for initial training and familiarization: on board instrumentations and multiple students workstations can be easily arranged.
Full Mission Ship Bridge Simulator
A realistic replica of a Ship Bridge; equipment, consoles, workstations, software and instrumentations are installed, mounted and arranged in a ship-like manner.
Full Mission Tugboat Bridge Simulator
A realistic replica of a Tugboat Bridge; equipment, consoles, workstations, software and instrumentations are installed, mounted and arranged in a ship-like manner.
Full mission Training & Exercise System
Combining in a single simulation multiple workstations types: from starter solutions to Full Mission to satisfy all the training needs.
The Instructor’s Workstation
The Instructor Workstation has been conceived, designed and implemented to provide a wide range of functionalities and to deeply control training scenarios and trainees’ performances over the time.
The own ship as well as the target ships can be fully customized; all the onboard instrumentations (Radar, ECDIS, GDMSS, etc.) can be configured to recreate all the situations that the trainee can experience on board real ships. Multiple instances of the Bridge Simulators can be controlled by a single instructor’s workstation.
