BCG Debuts Desktop Ship Simulator
Buffalo Computer Graphics (BCG) Inc. launched a turnkey desktop ship simulator that adds a visual component to the company’s existing line of radar and communication simulation products.
The system represents the integration of BCG products with third party software for a complete desktop simulator which features an out of window single channel visual display. The simulator is scalable to meet the requirements and budget of the customer; but is suited for small schools looking to add ECDIS and Radar/ARPA capability to their list of available course offerings, BCG said. Included in the simulator is an IMO approved ECDIS, one of BCG’s radar emulations and a selection of ownship controls to allow each student to maneuver his or her vessel.
