Share: Polaris bridge simulator instructor station

In order to meet different training requirements our bridge simulator can be configured with one or several instructor stations up to a maximum of eight. These instructor stations can be used to control the same or different exercises. In the case of different exercises, one can divide the own ships bridges between the instructor stations in any order. The bridge simulator will then work as two or more separate simulators.
