"The result is a completely modular platform with an extremely robust physics engine that can easily support the simulation of the full scope of maritime operations," remarked Terje Heierstad, global product manager, Kongsberg Maritime, Simulation.

"K-Sim is scenario-centric and object-oriented, which means that the simulator and its various components, such as its engine, bridge, cargo or crane, can be added or removed as needed to create a training system that supports the full range of operational training, mission rehearsal and crew resource management," Heierstad said.
The technology was first applied to offshore and anchor handling operations due to the heavy demands of these operations for precise physical modelling of such objects as various anchor types, wires and connection shackles. Subsequently, the same platform is being used to simulate vessel maneuvers and positioning of surface and sub-sea equipment for marine well containment and other complex procedures.
"In the next several years, the scope of K-Sim scenarios and training will be expanded to include all aspects of complex navy operations including traditional major combatant maneuvering, aircraft launch and recovery, as well as amphibious operations, including the loading/offloading of cargo and landing craft launch and recovery," Heierstad revealed.
All naval clients use the simulators for training in ship handling, navigation and tactical skills. For naval engineers, the K-Sim Engine simulator is used for process understanding and engine room and engine control room operational training. "Navy clients also use the simulators for pre-mission planning and research, such as fatigue studies," Heierstad added.

Which, at the end of the day, is what maritime simulation is all about," concludes Heierstad.
