Kongsberg Ship Simulator
MPI’s ship simulator is a wrap-around, high vertical field of view, full mission ship simulator provided by Kongsberg, the world leader in marine ship simulation. This advanced system utilizes the finest real-time hydrodynamic vessel modeling for the utmost in realism and vessel behavior. The geographic areas in the MPI Kongsberg ship simulator are technically accurate representations of their real-world counterparts. These custom geographic databases provide an immersive and compelling training experience, and an accurate platform for technical research. The system is equipped with the latest in network technology allowing for lightening fast simulation load times while rendering smooth visualization of the nautical scene. Console hardware is from Norwegian maritime controls manufacturer Lilaas, providing real hands-on control for all type of vessels including tankers, containerships, cruise vessels, supply vessels, tow vessels and azimuth stern drive (ASD) Tugs. The system is equipped with render/recover winch controls, RADAR/ARPA/ECDIS/AIS, pilot plug and monitoring equipment for ship’s sensors. The system is plug-and-play ready for Pilot laptop navigation systems (PPU) with full control to alter the quality of DGPS signals input to the PPU for interesting fault training for Pilots. The MPI Kongsberg ship simulator is best in class technology ready for your Pilot training and technical research.
