SUNY Maritime Selects Transas

Thursday, September 19, 2002
In July of 2002, the State University of New York (SUNY) Maritime College awarded the Buffalo Computer Graphics / Transas Marine USA team the contract for replacement of their existing full mission ship simulator. The simulator system includes a comprehensive Instructor control, monitoring and debriefing station, along with a seven visual channel full mission main bridge simulator designed to meet DNV Class ‘A’ navigational simulator standards. At the core of the system is Transas Marine’s industry leading Navi Trainer Professional simulation software with a comprehensive set of highly detailed vessel and geographic models. The bridge is designed to be flexible enough to be adapted for a number of specific marine training programs in the future and includes stimulated ARPA/Radar units, ECDIS, and the latest generation of large screen displays for its visualization. The simulator will be used to train college cadets, as well as for training programs for the regions maritime industry. Remarkably, the project that includes removal of the old systems, installation of a new seven channel full mission ship simulator, training and testing, has been completed in less than three months. Anthony Palmiotti, Director of continuing education at SUNY, and the project leader, commented, “The combination of high quality proven simulation product, history of quality customer support, excellent references, and a flexible professional approach to this important project for SUNY, made the Transas BCG team uniquely qualified to meet our requirements. A commitment to our delivery timescale was also an important factor”. George Toma, President and General Manager of Transas Marine USA noted, “We enter each individual project with a flexible open approach, and the aim of complete customer satisfaction. As we at Transas progress into our second decade in the simulation industry we continue to focus on providing the quality of systems expected of a global marine solutions provider, whilst maintaining the flexibility, and attention to detail throughout the life of a simulator system that this industry demands.”
