Kongsberg Maritime Ship Systems (KMSS) held its 15th Annual Simulation Users’ Conference (UC-2002) in Tonsberg, Norway on June 16-21. UC-2002 was held in conjunction with the Vestfold University College and over 100 participants attended the five-day conference, of which 75 percent were KMSS customer delegates. The implementation of e-Learning in maritime education was the main focus of UC-2002 and participants were presented with an overflowing itinerary consisting of presentations, papers, workshops and social events, all of which proved a resounding success. Rita Krathe, KMSS Conference Co-ordinator said, “The conference evaluation forms clearly showed that all participants were very pleased with the technical papers at UC-2002, and they also enjoyed the social program.” As part of the conference KMSS presented an e-education workshop. This involved the demonstration of a suite of advanced training and e-learning tools that are set to transform the processes involved in maritime training. “A student can run a full simulation exercise, including interactive ship instruments, full radar and visuals from a simple laptop,” said Arnstein Bugge, Vice President of Product Development at KMSS Many key speakers took to the stage at UC-2002, including IMO Ambassador Captain Orlando Allard of Panama. Participants also heard presentations covering Navy-to-Navy protocols and reports from maritime training institutions from around the world.
