Full Mission Ship Handling Simulator (FMSHS)


Full Mission Ship Handling Simulator

Our state-of-the-art Full mission Ship Handling Simulator (FMSS) is designed and built on validated and robust hydrodynamic models and algorithms to deliver accurate behavioral characteristics of the simulated ship and training environment. It is compliant with the IMO Convention and STCW 95 standard.

In addition to the basic FMSS, our solution includes a complete suite of trainers: ship Steering Simulator, Electronic Chart Display and Information System Trainer, ARPA Simulator, GMDSS simulator and Full Engine Room Simulator.  Training on the simulators will be managed through a centralised Instructor Operating Station (IOS).  The friendly user-interface Instructor Operating Station(IOS) provides the trainers with the necessary tools to prepare, execute and monitor the exercise under different conditions such as poor visibility, congested and high traffic waterways, and malfunctions.

The exercise at sea is conducted in real-time and the performance of the trainees will be recorded for After-Action Review and analysis. A debrief auditorium equipped with projectors and other training aids is also supplied to provide a comprehensive facility for post-exercise review of trainee performance.

Our scalable and configurable trainers may be networked  for an integrated ship operation training.
