Transas TechSim cloud for SUNY Maritime College

SUNY Maritime College SUNY Maritime College Transas

Transas has reported that it will be delivering a combination of full mission, classroom and cloud based Technical simulation (TechSim) solutions for the State University of New York (SUNY) Maritime College.

The full mission and classroom simulators will be deployed in early 2015, bringing SUNY up to date with forthcoming United States Coast Guard (USCG) National Maritime Center (NMC) training requirements.   

The cloud solution, scheduled to go live soon after, will allow students and faculty members to access various Transas simulation models on their personal devices, away from the classroom and without the need for specific Transas software.

With simulation class time limited, Transas says cloud-based access for students will ease the training burden, providing access to its simulation library via a standard internet browser.

“We are excited to be at the leading edge of this technology in maritime training” said Steve Dear, TechSim product expert with Transas Americas.

“We believe that the SUNY Cloud Simulation project represents a significant step forward for delivery of simulation to our customers, opening up many new training opportunities inside and outside the confines of the classroom.”

Initial online content will also include course preparation tasks, familiarisation, exercise and exam preparation, as well as providing students with the option of additional simulation time.

A secure site within the cloud for SUNY’s content will also be delivered, alongside instructor access for upload, download and preparation of content, student access control, and related support services.

The solution also includes management tools needed for SUNY administrators to create and manage student records and accounts, as well as monitor and manage cloud simulation usage and cost statistics.
