OSI, MSI Join Forces for Navy Training

Monday, January 14, 2002
Offshore Systems International Ltd. and MarineSafety International signed a Memorandum of Agreement to offer ECDIS-N (Electronic Chart Display Instrumentation Systems-Navy) training to the U.S. Navy. Under the agreement, MarineSafety has purchased Offshore System's proprietary Electronic Chart Precise Integrated Navigation System (ECPINS-M) for installation at MarineSafety's three training facilities.

Offshore Systems will install ECPINS in classrooms and on the full-mission bridge simulators at MarineSafety's ship-handling training centers located on U.S. Navy bases in Norfolk and San Diego, and at MarineSafety's training center in Newport, Rhode Island. Using ECPINS as part of its U.S. Navy Certified training courses, MarineSafety will provide training to Navy crews using a system that meets the U.S. Navy's ECDIS-N standard. John Jacobson, President and CEO of Offshore Systems, said, "Training is a key link in the logistics chain that the Navy requires for all of its deployed systems. Having ECPINS throughout the MarineSafety training centers ensures that ECPINS training is available at the home bases of the U.S. Navy's Atlantic and Pacific Fleets. MarineSafety's world-class facilities, instructors and curriculum will provide unmatched training for growing numbers of ECPINS users." MSI will add ECPINS-M systems to its current USCG approved 5 day Electronic Chart Navigation (ECDIS) course and the ECPINS-M system will be integrated into the simulators used in existing ship-handling courses offered by MarineSafety. Additionally, a new one-day ECPINS Introduction course will be available to new ECPINS users.
