Australian Navy upgrades ship training simulators

Australian Navy upgrades ship training simulators ABIS Alan Lancaster / Commonwealth of Australia

The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) is expanding its maritime simulator facility at HMAS Watson, Sydney, with the addition of new Kongsberg ship-handling and navigation simulators and the integration of a new visual display system for its existing bridge simulator.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}New Kongsberg Group division Kongsberg Digital will be responsible for delivering a new stand-alone Full Mission ship’s bridge simulator, and a Part Mission bridge simulator based on its K-Sim Polaris simulator platform. Both systems will have the same functionality as the RAN’s existing bridge simulators at HMAS Watson.

Kongsberg will also adapt the existing full mission bridge simulator – which is being relocated within the HMAS Watson facility – using new visual display technology, upgrading it from a projector based system to the same LED screens that the RAN’s new Polaris simulators will use.

“Kongsberg’s selection for the HMAS Watson expansion is based on its ability to meet the RAN’s training needs with advanced bridge simulator technology,” said Lieutenant Commander Ben Wellfare, RAN officer-in-charge, bridge training faculty.

“Kongsberg Digital’s commitment to the stability and capabilities of the K-Sim Polaris simulator platform provides the confidence for us to ensure we can continue providing high quality simulator training to a growing number of individual and team training commitments.”{/mprestriction}
