Force Technology recently introduced a simulator solution in order to offer highly realistic navigation training.
amely, the Denmark headquartered ship’s bridge simulator specialist launched the SimFlex Cloud, a dedicated SaaS (Software as a Service) solution.
As explained, SimFlex offers user-friendly access to next generation mixed reality simulation, using both Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) headsets to maximise realism and immersion.
Force Technology customers can configure training with SimFlex Cloud however best suits their organisational structure and training need. The system optimises maritime cloud simulator training with qualified instructors from Force Technology or the customer’s own network in control of all learning aspects, communication, exercise creation and delivery, debriefing and evaluation for live participants located anywhere in the world.
…the company noted.
SimFlex Cloud can also be used as a self study tool, giving junior officers, experienced captains and senior officers the ability to practice their skills whenever and wherever they can, using a laptop or desktop PC and monitor set up, as well the optional VR or AR headsets for even greater realism.
Flexible and scalable licencing options ensure that customers only pay for exactly what they use, while providing the ability to reduce or increase investment based on current requirements. Further, the connected nature of SimFlex Cloud ensures that users will always have the most recent content and training methods available.
“While navigational safety and competence drives our simulator development work at Force Technology, SimFlex Cloud also offers significant logistical advantages over attending training courses at physical facilities, including reduced travel costs, increased sustainability as a result of less employee travel, and continued access to high quality training in light of Covid-19 travel restrictions,”... concludes Jan Michelsen, Head of Department, Simulation, Ports & Training, Force Technology
