K-Sim® Navigation radar e-Learning
Access to simulators at school can be limited by capacity and school hours, while it is commonly understood that volume training is key to increasing competence. Used as an advanced eLearning tool, our cloud-based radar simulations application enables instructors to facilitate radar training for students, who now can practice anytime and anywhere.
Our legacy in navigation simulation excellence, combined with our state-of-the art cloud technology, puts us in a unique position of setting a new standard in maritime training. The new K-Sim Navigation radar simulation is designed to be compliant with the IMO Model Courses 1.07 and 1.08. It assists in delivery of simulation-based exercises meeting key learning objectives such as marine radar operational principles; radar navigation and plotting; use of radar in Search and Rescue (SAR); and use of ARPA.
The radar eLearning solution introduces a new line of navigation instruments based on IMO performance standards. Leveraging market-leading K-Sim Navigation functionality and cutting-edge cloud technology, it is a powerful and intuitive tool providing students with optimal realism in radar simulations and training scenarios.
A CLOUD-NATIVE SOLUTION
Our cloud-based radar eLearning solution is available on K-Sim Connect, our ecosystem thorugh which we provide cloud-based simulation services to the maritime education and training industry. The instructor tool is easy to use and enables instructors to efficiently manage and distribute exercises to students, with cutting-edge radar simulations.
In contrast with many similar online training solutions, Kongsberg Digital’s cloud-based simulations solutions are truly cloud-native, which means that the simulations operate 24/7 without any need to limit the number of instructors and students running exercises at the same time, or for the instructors to book a timeslot on a remote simulator to provide the exercises.
The radar eLearning is delivered with initial condition exercises. As an instructor, you can choose between a selection of ship models and geographical sailing areas to meet the exact training objectives. You will later also have the option to connect an instructor system for creating your own-made exercises.
The radar application, is designed to comply with the IMO Model Course 1.07 - Radar Navigation, Radar Plotting and Use of ARPA and the IMO Model course 1.08 - Radar, ARPA, Bridge Teamwork and Search and Rescue.
It is specifically designed for the following learning objectives:
- Basic theory and operational principles of a marine radar system
- Radar setting and operation
- Using radar to ensure safe navigation
- Manual radar plotting
- Operation of ARPA or radar target tracking (TT) and AIS reporting functions
- Application of COLREGs when using radar
- Use of Radar in Search and Rescue (SAR)
THe fIRST IN A LINE OF K-sim navigation e-learning modules
The radar is the first in a line of cloud-based training applications within the K-Sim Navigation portfolio on K-Sim Connect. Supplemented with ECDIS and additional functionality, K-Sim Navigation will constitute a complete cloud-based training solution, compliant with all the requirements for ship officer training as stated in the STCW convention.
The radar elearning module is a subscription-based service and the volume of use can be scaled based on how many students who require access. Please see the marketplace on K-Sim Connect, or contact us for an offer adaptable to your number of students and current training needs.
