Our cutting-edge K-Sim VTS is specially designed for VTS operator training in order to improve safety and efficiency of vessel traffic and to protect the environment. The simulator system combines the cutting-edge K-Sim Navigation technology with Kongsberg Norcontrol’s C-Scope VTS system providing realistic simulation that enhances the VTS operators skills significantly.
The K-Sim VTS simulator exceeds the relevant recommendations as stated in IALA Guideline 1027 Simulation in VTS Training. It is an ideal training tool to conduct simulation training for the IALA V-103 model courses.
The K-Sim VTS provides training scenarios for the following training objectives:
The simulator operator station uses the C-Scope Operator Client, which is the same application used in major ports and coast guard stations world-wide. Our modular design allows integration of any communication system, making adaptation to special training requirements easy.
To create realistic communication and traffic patterns for the VTS operators, up to 16 K-Sim Navigation desktop stations can be included.
A large library of exercise areas for VTS training is provided with the simulator. The exercises includes radar video, AIS data, Aids to navigation and electronic navigation charts (ENC).
In addition to radar, the instructor may enable tracks with an AIS transponder. When enabled, the AIS tracks will appear on top of the track’s radar echo. This allows trainees to access the simulated AIS data for the specific track, which includes the vessel’s identity (name, callsign, MMSI, IMO number), as well as other static, dynamic and voyage related data.
We have put much effort into the design of a user-friendly and flexible instructor and debriefing system. Our debriefing equipment includes large screen projectors, communication recording, printers, etc.
All K-Sim simulator systems and models within Class A, B and C are certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) according to the current standard DNV-ST-0033 Maritime simulator systems.
All K-Sim DP (Dynamic Positioning) simulators are complaint with the Appendix E – NI DP Simulator/Equipment specification issued by Nautical Institute in the Dynamic Positioning Operator Training Scheme Accreditation Standard.
