RTM STAR Center Upgrades Full Mission Bridge Simulator

Wednesday, February 13, 2002
RTM STAR (Simulation, Training, Assessment and Research) Center has announced the upgrade and modernization of its 247-degree “field-of-view” Full Mission Bridge Simulator. The simulator is located at STAR Center’s Dania Beach, Fla., facility and is based on a design by Kongsberg Maritime Ship Systems Inc. (KMSS). Following the successful upgrade of STAR Center’s 360 bridge with the Litton Sperry 2100 Integrated Bridge System in 1999, STAR Center is proud to announce the upgrade of its other Full Mission Bridge Simulator. The 247° Full Mission Bridge Simulator has been upgraded with KMSS equipment and features the capability to simulate Azipod equipped vessels in addition to other traditional propulsion systems. The bridge equipment also features four radar/ARPA units, two of which have the option to display ECDIS. Furthermore, a “BridgeLine” Integrated Navigation System has been installed on this simulator. The installation of a “BridgeLine” System will greatly enhance both the research and training capabilities of the simulator. The “BridgeLine” System is the latest improvement in shipboard navigation equipment and has been installed in many modern vessels such as petroleum tankers and LNG carriers. The simulators are augmented by one of the most diverse databases of over 100 hydrodynamically accurate and validated ship models, as well as an impressive variety of ports and over 150 geographic areas around the world. STAR Center’s in-house modeling team continually enlarges these databases. The capability of STAR Center’s two Full Mission Bridge Simulator’s enables both training and research tasks including work in areas such as shipboard resource management, ship handling, rules of the road, emergency response, tug operations, vessel and harbor familiarization, and port design.
