MITAGS Technology Center to Celebrate Grand Opening of Simulation Technology Center

Wednesday, March 14, 2007
The Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies (MITAGS) will celebrate the grand opening of its marine simulation technology center on March 26. The event will include a reception, entertainment, and continuous tours of the various technology centers including the full-mission bridges, the towing simulators, the 14-station computer lab, the vessel traffic, the All-Weather Navigation, and the new crane simulator.

•Full-Mission Shiphandling Simulator #1 This is one of the largest and most sophisticated class A full-mission simulators in the world and it has been upgraded and integrated into two towing, six part-tasks, and one vessel traffic simulators. All simulators are equipped Automatic Identification Systems (AIS), Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems, Vessel Traffic Controls, and the very latest in visual projection systems. The systems are supported by an experienced in-house team of database and hydrodynamic modelers. •Full-Mission Towing Simulator (SHS#3) This simulator utilizes a unique 330° horizontal and an unprecedented 42° vertical field of views. This simulator works in tandem with the Full-Mission Simulator #2, and Towing Simulator #4. SHS#3 &4 are specifically designed for ship assist and escort training (direct and indirect towing forces).

The completion of the $2 million upgrade is on top of the $3 million upgrade of Shiphandling Simulator #2 (SHS#2), completed in 2002. These investments were made in response to the growing demand for high quality simulation training and operational research at both MITAGS and the Pacific Maritime’s Seattle facility.
