Full Mission Bridge Simulators

Maritime Full Mission Bridge Training Simulators

The NAUTIS Certified DNV Class A Full Mission Bridge simulators are fully compliant with the Class A DNV Standards for Certification No. 2.14 for Maritime Simulator Systems and IMO model courses 1.22 and 1.32. They address all new elements from the newly revised IMO STCW Convention, which entered into force January 2012 and allows realistic training of a wide variety of training courses.

TOTAL IMMERSION, TOTAL REALISM, FULL MISSION BRIDGE

Realistic training on board actual high quality ship bridge replicas becomes possible with the NAUTIS Full Mission Bridge (FMB) Simulators. These fully certified Full Mission Bridge DNV Class A simulators comply with the Class A requirements as set by DNV’s interpretation of the STCW.

FIELD OF VIEW

NAUTIS FMB Simulators are designed to provide a 240° horizontal field of view and are easily upgradable to a 360° horizontal field of view, providing full surround vision.

INSTRUCTOR STATION

Delivery of a NAUTIS FMB Simulator includes a NAUTIS Instructor Station. The NAUTIS Instructor Station is a mandatory element of the DNV Class A certified simulators. Under the STCW guidelines, the instructor must be located in a separate room and be able to visually follow the proceedings of an exercise. The NAUTIS Instructor Station includes duplicates of the student’s navigation screens as well as the instructor’s control panels. This way, the instructor can follow the trainee’s decisions and actions in detail.
