Singapore’s Ministry of Home Affairs has awarded a record maritime simulator contract to Kongsberg Digital to supply the Police Coast Guard.

The simulator delivery will include four high speed craft simulators replicating different boat types all of which will be integrated with weapon capabilities for full-scale tactical training.

“We are proud of our proven ability to deliver advanced systems of this calibre, providing Singapore Police Coast Guard with simulation training capability on an entirely new level,” said Tone-Merete Hansen, Senior Vice President of Kongsberg Digital.

“A financial commitment of this magnitude underscores our belief that simulator training is an absolutely crucial resource in the modern, ever-changing maritime environment.”

Record contract

The SG$21.2 million contract is the largest ever simulator contract for Kongsberg. The four advanced K-Sim Tactical Boat Handling and Firing Simulators with a ten-year comprehensive maintenance agreement will be delivered in the first quarter of 2020.

Kongsberg’s new simulator facility is being established to replicate different boat types with a 240 HFOV (horizontal field of view) on full motion platforms, two Instructor operator stations and two briefing/debriefing rooms.

The simulators will also be equipped with weapon capabilities, provided by a third-party, for multiple weapon types to facilitate highly realistic and full-scale tactical training and provide trainees with the perception of operating in actual environments. Kongsberg Digital’s delivery will also encompass project management and engineering, installation, commissioning and testing and an integrated logistics service.

To simulate fast craft used by organisations such as the Singapore Police Coast Guard, necessitates advanced hydrodynamic modelling performace to ensure realistic and near to real-time simulator training.

The new simulators will push the technology to achieve an enitrely new level of hydrodynamic capabilities and will create a realistic and immersive simulated environment to effectively train the boat crew on ship handling and fast interception operations together with weapon engagements.
