K-Sim Safety is a simulation system developed to practice management and procedures for firefighting, search and rescue operations. With an immersive 3D virtual environment, the simulator provides a realistic, safe and cost-efficient way of training for safety professionals.
The firefighting simulator allows emergency crews to experience an incident as if it happened in real life. During a simulator exercise, they can assess the situation and determine the best response strategy. Thereafter, implement it and then observe the consequences of their decisions during a debriefing.
By using K-Sim Safety critical training can be carried out to ensure enhanced competence in fire prevention and firefighting techniques.
K-Sim Safety enables practical exercises simulated in a realistic 3D environment. It meets the STCW regulation VI/3, section A-VI/3 table A-VI/3-1, where methods for demonstrating competence in firefighting, search and rescue onboard are described as:
The K-Sim Safety includes a full mission simulator, which can train up to three diﬀerent teams at the same time. Whereas the teams typically consist of one management team and two firefighting teams.
In an emergency situation the management team will meet at the bridge/safety command center. Their main task is to manage the firefighting through communication with internal teams and with externals using radio. In order to provide the management team the full overview of the emergency situation, the simulator includes a bridge/safety command center equipped with safety panels and an Integrated Automation System (IAS).
A fire control and safety plan is included with the system. This is a mandatory requirement of the SOLAS convention onboard ships. The plan is located at selected locations on the ship. And it provides detailed information about fire stations, type of fire detection and firefighting systems available onboard.
The full mission training system includes two separate fire team muster stations (fire station 1 and 2) with detailed 3D virtual ship hotel & machinery space application. All of which has an interactive walk-through virtual animation of the entire engine room and the four upper decks.
K-Sim Safety contains a 3D interactive walkthrough of selected areas in the simulated ship. It features visual elements such as equipment for the fire teams, doors, lights, fire, smoke and people. In addition to this, corridors, stairs, cabins, offices, lockers, storage, emergency exits and muster stations, including firefighting and lifesaving devices, are displayed in 3D.
During an exercise, each fireteam may consist of a team leader, an assistant and two smoke divers who can train on procedures and virtually walk around selected areas of the ship.
An X-Box controller is used for navigating around the ship. When a situation requires the smoke divers to split from their managers, they can continue into the virtual smoke diver’s area with their own monitor and X-Box controller.
K-Sim Safety facilitates also training on emergency communication, the use of extinguisher equipment and the search for missing persons.
The K-Sim Safety is delivered with a cutting-edge Instructor system developed in cooperation with experienced customers and DNV. The system allows the instructor to customize exercises for individuals or teams. It can easily create emergency situations like fire, smoke, blackout, ﬂooding and missing persons. The scenarios and fault settings can either be pre-programmed, or manually set during the exercise to challenge the teams.
With the ability to monitor and interact together with the automatically recording of all activity during the exercise, a replay function for debriefing and a built-in assessment system, structured training and objective student evaluation have never been easier.
