Ship Handling Simulator for Portuguese Navy


Ship Handling Simulator for Portuguese Navy

Kongsberg Maritime Ship Systems (KMSS) has been awarded the contract to supply a ship-handling simulator to the Portuguese Navy. The contract consists of several naval bridge cubicles in two different locations, connected via a fibre optic network. The main ship handling bridge simulator will be installed at the Navy’s tactical centre and will replicate the bridge of the ‘Vasco de Gama’, MEKO-class frigate. Each of the two training sites will be equipped with differently configured bridges providing the capacity to train several bridge crews operating in the same exercise scenario, simultaneously.

The delivery will include the latest technology in system architecture on all levels, including multiple simulator sites, a wide area network using fibre optics and object oriented programming. In addition to the bridge facilities, a simulated OPS room will be installed at the tactical centre to provide tactical information to each scenario. The system allows interface and interaction with future training simulators such as tactical trainers, flights simulation and other military training devices.KMSS has an ongoing relationship with the Portuguese Navy, having supplied the world’s first combined diesel and gas engine room simulator based on the ‘Vasco de Gama’ in 1997.
