ROVsim Pro Chosen By New ROV Training Facility

Thursday, January 15, 2009

Marine Simulation LLC recently teamed with Cabaco Marine Pte Ltd to sell two ROVsim Pro training systems to Seahorse Services Co. Ltd. to be used in their new ROV pilot training facility in Vung Tao, Vietnam.  ROVsim Pro is a physics accurate, visually realistic and highly configurable Remotely Operated (submerged) Vehicle (ROV) simulator intended for undersea and marine professionals.  By implementing the very latest technologies for real-time 3D visualization, it is able to simulate a wide range of mission variables: from changing currents and visibility, to electronics and gear failures.

The complete ROVsim Pro training system consists of an instructor's control system, a number of student pilot systems and connected SONAR displays.  Through the control system, an instructor is able to monitor student ROVs in a virtual 3D display and trigger any combination of environmental changes or system casualties.  The system comes configured with a selection of pre-built, realistic missions for a variety of tasks including tunnel/pipe/tank inspection, marine biologics research and sampling, human remains/crime scene investigation and recovery, ship's hull inspection, harbor security, and marine archaeological research and recovery.  ROVsim software is currently being used in 11 countries worldwide including the US and now Vietnam.

Marine Simulation LLC produces interactive, computer-based simulations of surface and sub-surface craft for marine professionals,  using technologies originally developed for the video game industry.
