New Kongsberg Maritime simulators for extensive upgrade to South Tyneside College facilities

Kongsberg Maritime has been chosen to supply a suite of upgraded navigation, engine room and Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) simulator hardware and software for an extensive facilities upgrade to the School of Simulation & Senior Marine at South Tyneside College. The upgrade project is being carried out during the summer and will include installation of the simulation systems and improvements to the buildings that house them.

The project will feature a total refurbishment for the main Polaris bridge simulator, which includes two full-mission bridges and four part task bridges, with brand new consoles including K-Bridge and Polaris Radar ARPA upgrades and the introduction of Multiflex panels, which offer the ability to change functionality through software, rather than swapping out hardware panels. The bridge will benefit from a brand new projection system that is twice as bright and provides twice the resolution of the existing system, while all standard PCs will be replaced and the computer network upgraded from CAT5 to CAT6 cabling.

The School of Simulation & Senior Marine's full mission engine room simulator will be upgraded to Kongsberg Maritime's flexible solutions, which includes multiple use of touch screen technology. The engine room simulator will be upgraded with new Local Operating Stations for mimic presentations and 65 inch touch screens for presenting Kongsberg Maritime's new interactive virtual engine room applications.

"Although our simulation facilities are continually updated and improved we understand the need to keep at the cutting-edge of technology and quality in order to meet the changing training requirements in the industry," explains Paul Hodgson, Technical and Projects Manager, School of Marine Simulation and Senior Marine, at South Tyneside College.
