Web enabled simulation
Kongsberg Maritime will also deliver eight student software licenses for. Our web enabled simulation allows students to run simulation exercises on their own PC, regardless of where they are. It is a scaled-down version of our Polaris Bridge simulator running on a PC with built in self-study exercises. It allows students to familiarise themselves with the Polaris instrumentation and ARPA radar at their own speed prior to entering a full mission Polaris simulator. Using web enabled simulation the trainee can start the full mission simulator training with a higher level of knowledge.
The local competitor Gdynia Maritime University is also equipped with a Polaris Ships Bridge Simulator. Both schools are active in selling training courses to crewing agents and shipping companies in an international market. Our program of continuous development of our simulator products allows both of these schools to meet the demanding training requirements of professional customers world wide.
