On Board Ship Training according to STCW


Radar ARPA

The RADAR ARPA console is equipped with the Radar Simulator capable to offer the main training functionalities according to the standard STCW.

The radar simulator can also be used to carry-out Radar/ARPA courses in stand-alone mode by using a dedicated software combined with the Instructor workstation.

  • False echoes


The ECDIS console is equipped with the EGLOBE G2 ECDIS system already certified by DNV according to the following standards: Annex A.1, item No. A.1/4.30 and Annex B, Module B in the Directive. IMO Resolutions A.694 (17), MSC.191 (79) & MSC.232 (82).

The ECDIS is fully integrated in the bridge replica and its functionalities can be controlled through a dedicated user interfaces (also designed for touch screens).

  • Chart Management
  • Chart data display
  • Mode and orientation management
  • Radar Integration
  • Possibility to load multiple types of charts (e.g. S57. S63, etc.)
  • Alerts and warnings management
  • Antigrounding
  • Look ahead settings
  • Watch handover checklist
  • Customizable data display
  • User objects definition
  • Report generation
  • User Profiles

AIS System

The AIS simulator is able to manage AIS messages and, in addition, to receive messages from the outside (generated by other ships or by the instructor).
The AIS is fully integrated with the RADAR and the ECDIS systems.


The ECHOSOUNDER simulator provides a number of information including depth display, ship’s speed and position, graphic display of depth, markers on the depth graph, date and time along with other information and functionalities.

DGPS System

The GPS simulator includes functionalities such as display of geographical coordinates to define the position, display of connected satellites and data associated with them, registration of a route (including waypoint management), calculation of estimated time of arrival (ETA), man over board (MOB).


The Speedlog summarizes the most important navigational information in a single application. The Speedlog depicts, on a very intuitive interface: ship coordinates, route, gyrocompass, SOG, COG, rotation, drift speed, traveled distance, depth, wind velocity and direction (absolute and relative), sea currents, time, etc.

Fire System

The Firefighting system allows carrying-out emergency procedure in case of fire on- board. The instructor can recreate, through dedicated interfaces, different emergency scenarios that the student has to manage and solve in accordance with the procedures normally used on board ships.


The Ship Bridge Simulator is equipped with a full communication system to train operators to use correctly different types of instrumentations.

Communications can be directed toward other vessels, coast stations as well as toward the Instructor that can simulate a number of different communication scenarios.

Communications are simulated according to the International Convention for the safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS).

Functionalities include:

  • transmit aid alert ship-coast
  • receive aid alert coast-ship
  • transmit and receive alert of ship-to-ship aid
  • transmit and receive communications for the coordination of the operations search and rescue
  • transmit and receive signals for location aims
  • transmit and receive information on marine security (MSI)
  • transmit and receive general communications destined to networks or radioelectric earth systems
  • transmit and receive general bridge-bridge communications

The GMDSS simulator is equipped with different system such as:

  • Radiotelephone VHF
  • Radiotelephone SSB MF/HF
  • INMARSAT Standard C
  • NAVTEX (NBDP receiver)
  • SART
  • Watch Receiver – 2187.5 kHz and CH 70
  • DSC Controller/Receiver VHF – CH70
  • DSC Controller/Receiver MF/HF – 2-4-6-8-12-16 MHz
  • GPS readout (Lat./Long.)
  • Speed-log readout (NM)
  • Gyrocompassreadout (Deg.)
