Title Training driven simulator development
Year 1993

MSCN has developed Nautical Simulator Systems including Manoeuvring Simulators, Engineioom Simulators and Cargo Handling Simulators They are designed to meet requirements of ship officers, pilots and nautical students to gain or augment their understanding of the behaviour of ships, the effect of external conditions such as wind, waves, current and shallow water, how to deal with tugs, how to control the computerized systems and how to act in case of emergency situations.
The Simulator Systems have a modular and flexible setup and can be scaled and adapted to any specific training needs and are hardware independent
This paper deals with the development of nautical simulator systems both in terms of technical and training requirements, aspects which are both covered within the MSCN organisation.
