Marking a significant milestone in unlocking new simulation potential within MARIN, the Maritime eXperience Lab (MX Lab) is a cutting-edge facility dedicated to extending MARIN's simulation capabilities through eXtended Reality (XR) technology. The team were so impressed with the potential of the platform they nicknamed it LEVIATHAN (Learning Environment in VR Integrated with Aquatic Technology for Hydrodynamical Navigation).

Virtual reality (VR) stands out as a potent tool for immersive experiences, capable of eliciting psychological and operational responses closely mirroring real-life scenarios. Using VR alongside traditional simulators enables mixed simulations, enhancing MARIN's flexibility in evaluating operations.
