Kongsberg Chosen for Navy Simulation Test

January 27, 2004

The United States Navy selected Kongsberg Maritime to supply simulation training tools for its Navigation, Seamanship, and Shiphandling Training (NSST) programs. The contract is for Kongsberg Maritime to supply and install ‘demonstration simulator systems’ to be tested and evaluated toward determining the feasibility of new simulator configurations and their integration with the NSST programs.

Kongsberg Maritime will supply a cross section of its simulation systems including a Version 1 Desktop Polaris Simulator, 25-station Polaris E-learning navigation lab and a Version 2 Part-Task Trainer to the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Two more Version 2 Polaris Bridge simulators have been selected for installation at US Naval bases in Japan.

Herbert Taylor, President of Kongsberg Maritime Simulation Inc., said “In addition to installations in the majority of the world’s leading maritime colleges, we have also supplied many systems to Navies around the world."

The Polaris system forms the basis of Kongsberg Maritime’s bridge simulation products. It replicates the operation of real ships in a high fidelity simulation package that is fully scaleable. Polaris systems can range from one PC workstation with all panels and instruments emulated on screen up to full mission simulators with complete IBS controls and stations, interfaced to full 360° visual systems.
