MPT Upgrades Simulator System

(Press Release)
Thursday, December 15, 2011
Maritime Professional Training (MPT) has upgraded its simulator, and the maritime training and education provider is claiming that it will be world’s most visually realistic maritime simulator training experience. The system – which provides a true-to-life preview of a career at sea – is a result of MPT's plans to upgrade the visual projection systems of the Main Bridge located at their S.M.A.R.T. (Simulation For Maritime Assessment, Research and Training) Campus in Fort Lauderdale.
This is the latest capital improvement in MPT’s Project 2010 and Beyond, an ongoing campaign to upgrade virtually all of the facilities at their three Fort Lauderdale campuses. A DNV-approved Maritime Training Center and an ISO 9001:2008 company, MPT operates the most complete full-service private maritime training school in the country. MPT has chosen NavSim Services as the Prime Vendor for the upgrade and Projection Design as the hardware supplier. Transas USA will continue as the software provider. The installation will feature newly upgraded F32 Projectors that supply up to 8000 lumens each projected onto a 120-ft. (36.5m) curved screen to provide a visually immersive environment that greatly improves on direct-view displays. The upgraded installation will also feature Projection Design’s patented Multi Image Processors supplying image adjustments at the pixel level, which provides a level of realism unmatched in other display solutions.
MPT’s S.M.A.R.T. campus provides a full range of Simulation for Maritime Assessment Research and Training and features three full mission INS/IBS-equipped navigational bridges along with ARPA, ECDIS, and Electronic Navigation Labs. The campus is utilized primarily by ships’ officers and crew, pilot groups, and vessel operators to provide realistic training and assessment for the U.S.C.G., MCA, BMA, MI, and STCW regulations. The facility also hosts many unique training programs providing specialized training and assessment tailored to meet individual and corporate standards.
