Anyone who wants to use or buy a (bridge) simulator does so mainly to train really complex maritime operations and situations, in an efficient way in a safe environment. You can also use professional simulators for research studies and testing innovative developments. Think of the application of virtual reality, operational advice tools and the testing of autonomous ships. The basic condition in all these cases is that a ship or maritime construction behaves exactly as it does in practice during the simulation.
That is precisely what makes MARIN's simulators so unique: very realistic behaviour, based on our hydrodynamic knowledge and more than 85 years of experience with model tests and calculation studies for ships and offshore structures. With our expertise and powerful software - MARIN Inside - we can, for example, 'generate' customer-specific ships and have them interact realistically (6 DoF). Consider, for example, interactions with waves, between passing ships or sailing in shallow water. It is very important that these interaction effects are accurately modelled.
Every day we feed and validate our software with new insights and wishes. From ourselves, but especially from people from the field, such as pilots, captains and instructors who use our simulators.
Simulator | simulator software sales
Our in-house developed simulator software allows you to simulate the full range of maritime operations. From simple ship handling to complex, high-risk, multi-player offshore operations, from maneuvering vessels to planing vessels. We process our knowledge and experience during research and design in our software that our customers and ourselves use on a daily basis. We continuously validate our tools with test results of models and full-scale data.
We build simulators and use them for our own research and for training complex maritime operations and situations. We also sell simulators. In this way, customers can easily train their crew at their own location.
