Kongsberg Maritime has unveiled its latest generation ship’s bridge simulator, K-Sim Navigation, which meets the requirements of the most demanding navigation training for merchant, offshore and naval vessels. Designed for the future of advanced and integrated simulation training, K-Sim Navigation is based on a new cutting-edge technology platform enabling more realistic training scenarios and enhanced user benefits for both instructors and students.
K-Sim Navigation features an advanced physical engine and state-of-the-art hydrodynamic modelling, allowing vessels, objects and equipment to behave and interact as in real life. To enhance the realism further, a sophisticated new visual system is included, bringing vessels and objects in all possible weather conditions to life.
The result of these improvements is, according to Terje Heierstad, Global Product Manager, Kongsberg Maritime Simulation: “A fully immersive and optimum quality simulation experience. It’s a step change in maritime simulation. The shipping sector doesn’t stand still, and neither do we. Using our 40 years of simulation experience, it was our goal to take ship’s bridge simulation to the next level.”
