Press Release
Wednesday, November 07, 2012

ECDIS Ltd unveil Vstep Nautis Full Mission Bridge Simulator primarily for Bridge Team training but fitted with 4 ECDIS systems.

UK based ECDIS training and consultancy company ECDIS Ltd unveiled the simulator at the opening of the facility by MP George Hollingbery in Southampton.

The Bridge Simulator is to accompany the six smaller NAUTIS simulators already used for visual channels during the IMO 1.27 Model ECDIS Course. VSTEP are world renowned for their simulator software and have the capability of integrating their system with most ECDIS manufactures using standard NMEA strings as found onboard any vessel.

The Bridge Simulator has been setup with two Radars and four ECDIS systems including OSI, Kelvin Hughes, JRC and Transas which are all full integrated. However it can also be integrated with other ECDIS manufacturers as required by clients. The system is capable of displaying RADAR, AIS and ARPA overlays onto the ECDIS giving an extremely realistic experience for the mariner.

Mark Broster, Managing Director of ECDIS Ltd, says: “It represents another milestone in our company that we have partnered with such a large, well respected and global simulator manufacturer. However, our aim remains the same, to provide excellent quality training at affordable prices to the mariner. Expanding our portfolio with the Enav Centre is providing exactly that. Due to the success of this project, it is likely that we will select the VSTEP simulation solution for all our future facilities and procurements abroad.”
