SEA to provide RNN upgraded portable DECKsim Virtual Reality Trainer

Posted 5 February 2018 · Add Comment

The Royal Norwegian Navy (RNN) has become the first customer to order the upgraded portable DECKsim Virtual Reality Trainer to be delivered by Cohort plc company SEA.


 
The Norwegians have used SEA’s fully integrated Flight Deck Officer (FDO) simulator DECKsim for five years at their naval training establishment in Bergen.  The new man portable solution will enable them to train individuals on board any ship or at any land-based facility.
 
The DECKsim system replicates flight decks (ships and oil platforms) and land-based airfield environments for training aircraft handling procedures. DECKsim is used by various navies around the world and is currently attracting strong interest globally for both fixed installation simulators and portable solutions. The system is easily configured for specific airframes, platforms and scenario requirements.
 
SEA Business Development Executive, Andy McGowan explained: “We have harnessed the latest developments in VR technology and embodied it within the modular DECKsim system. The result is a truly portable solution which efficiently addresses FDO ‘currency’ training and testing, which is a challenge for all organisations.”
 
Current users of DECKsim have reduced FDO related live aircraft flying hours by up to 50% giving a rapid return on investment. In addition to lowering training costs, the system delivers an environment where an individual can train in routine and emergency operating conditions, which is impossible with the live platform.
