More than 250 maritime professionals from 41 countries gathered in Maryland, USA to discuss the Future trends and New Challenges in Maritime Simulation during the recent Transas Simulation User Conference (Transas SimUC).

For the first time ever, the event ran across two venues, giving attendees an opportunity to experience what Transas describe as two of the most unique and trend setting Training Centers in the World.

During the first day at the Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies (MITAGS), the conference focus was, appropriately, on Research and Development applications of simulation and advanced tug operations, with attendees given the opportunity to tour the extensive MITAGS simulation facilities at their leisure, as part of an open house.  The series of papers demonstrated not only the growth in simulation research opportunities, but also the extensive, and wide ranging ability of Transas simulators to be applied for research and development studies, as well as in the most advanced tug operations in practice today.

Upon completion of the day one program, the entire conference moved to the Calhoon M.E.B.A. Engineering School (CMES), on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, in Easton, with a continued program of conference sessions for the remainder of the week.

Prior to the event, CMES's navigational simulation facilities were fully upgraded to meet the latest regulatory requirements.  Additionally, upgraded Techsim 5000 classroom and full mission solutions from Transas were delivered to CMES for liquid cargo handling and Engineering personnel training.  The upgraded equipment received very positive feedback from the CMES Instructional team, and Transas SimUC attendees who participated in demonstrations on the new equipment.

The event's success was demonstrated by the positive feedback received from attendees who commented favourably on the interesting, educational, relevant and current session content.
