Simulation Training And Research Center To Open In Seattle In April

The West Coast's first commercial ship simulation training facility will begin operations in Seattle this April. STAR (Simulation Training And Research) Center Seattle will be equipped to serve up to 1,000 mariners per year.

The Seattle facility will feature two full mission, visual simulation bridges, as well as a suite of navigational radar/ARPA simulators. Each bridge will be created as an authentic wheelhouse, equipped with radar/ARPA, a steering stand with autopilot, communication systems and navigational instruments. Clearly visible through the wheelhouse windows, via computergenerated imagery, will be land, shore structures, buoys, channel markers, tugs and passing ships. Both bridge simulators will have debriefing theaters. Together, instructors and trainees will review simulation exercises that can include mechanical and engine failures, high winds,etc. STAR Center Seattle will provide both training and operations research services to the West Coast and Alaskan maritime communities. For more information on STAR Center Seattle, Circle 14 on Reader Service Card 91
