New Touch Panels for Simulator Training

Thursday, November 06, 2008

Kongsberg Maritime has developed the Multiflex Panel, a flexible touch-screen panel for its Polaris simulation systems that can be configured with different panel functions. This enables training institutes to offer a wider range of training on their Kongsberg Maritime Polaris full mission simulators.

Over 70 different panel functions are available. The system has been designed as a replacement for hardware panels by replicating the same panels in a touch sensitive graphical format.

During an exercise, students can easily switch between different functions, e.g. Doppler log and Echo sounder on the same panel. The instructors can choose between a range of panel functions to be made available to the students via the Multiflex Panels from the Instructor-PC or the instructor can use pre-configured training scenarios for a specific ship class, which will automatically present the panels required.
