Full mission ship bridge simulators
The Laurentian Pilotage Authority has contracted with Norway’s Kongsberg Digital for the supply of three K-Sim Navigation full mission ship bridge simulators.
The simulators will help Montreal’s LPA meet its public mandate through the development of best practices, risk assessments and in-depth incident reviews in support of maritime pilotage.
The K-Sim Navigation platform can simultaneously integrate multiple bridges to create a near real-life maritime operational environment wherein LPA personnel can evaluate manoeuvring techniques, communications protocols and assess tug escort operations with a view toward best practices. The system is designed to accommodate a wide array of ship models, databases and sailing areas with full environmental control, including weather, current and ice conditions to ensure the very highest fidelity simulation available.
LPA has also invested in development tools exclusive to K-Sim, enabling them to create their own ship models and area databases, berthing areas and waterways. By Jake Frith
