New Version of Liquid Cargo Handling Simulator Software

L-3 MPRI announced the release of Version 5.0 of its Liquid Cargo Handling Simulator (LCHS) software called Safe Cargo. This release incorporates significant improvements to the performance, instructor features and configuration options currently available in the software suite. The release is fully compliant with the latest Windows operating systems and incorporates a new network communications infrastructure that improves the speed and stability of the simulator as well as system diagnostics and recovery. The configuration wizard allows an instructor to quickly define the required simulator configuration for the training exercise, selecting from multiple ship types, and assigning the student stations to be operated independently or in groups. Once defined, configurations can be saved and reloaded in the future with a single click of a button, providing considerable flexibility. New tools are also available to simplify the monitoring of each of the student stations and the recording of student actions, with integration into the WISE Virtual Instructor and Competence Assessment tools. The new software additionally features the option to incorporate real hardware consoles or virtual panels with the appropriate gauges and controls, allowing lifelike simulation of a fully operational Cargo Control Room environment
