NAUTIS simulator for coxswain training

VSTEP has announced that it has delivered a NAUTIS simulator to Seafood and Maritime Industries Training (SMIT) in Darwin (Australia) for specialised ship handling, manoeuvring and radar training of coxswains.

The Rotterdam-based developer says that its NAUTIS DNV Class A Full Mission Bridge simulator allows specialised navigation and ship handling training of coxswains and maritime personnel alike in full compliance with the latest STCW requirements.

The simulator features a 240° field of view and an additional projected stern view, as well as a Kelvin Hughes Radar system for radar training. A NAUTIS Instructor Station was also delivered to SMIT Australia, which focuses on training of maritime personnel aboard fishing and recreational vessels.

VSTEP’s CEO Cristijn Sarvaas said: “SMIT is well-known for its high quality training of maritime personnel in the region. We are pleased that our NAUTIS simulators were selected to enhance their training curriculum. We have previously delivered multiple NAUTIS simulators to the Australian Army and Australian volunteer Coastguard and are proud to add SMIT to our clients in Australia.”
