Transas to Supply Mid-Atlantic Maritime Academy With Simulator

Wednesday, August 29, 2007
Transas USA announced the supply of a Full Mission Ship Handling simulator to the Mid-Atlantic Maritime Academy (formerly Tidewater School of Navigation ) based in Virginia Beach, VA. The simulator, based on the Transas Navi-Trainer Professional 4000 simulation software, will consist of a 225 degree horizontal field of view forward combined with three rear viewing channels.

The bridge equipment is convertible to enable ship handling training on large vessels as well as tugs and offshore supply vessels. Transas was also contracted to supply all related PC hardware and the supply included control equipment such as Z-Drive and Voight-Schneider propulsion controls seen on most tugs and offshore vessels. The Full Mission simulator will be an extension of the already existing ARPA / Radar and ECDIS class room simulators. In addition, M.A.M.A is equipped with the Transas TGS4100 GMDSS simulator and is able to offer a full range of USCG and STCW approved maritime training courses from Able Seaman to Master Mariner. The training center is also approved by the Virginia State Board of Education. The installation of the simulator will complete an expansion program of the M.A.M.A., while filling an ever increasing need for a full service maritime training facility in the Chesapeake Bay area.
