Simulator upgrades for QMT

BCG’s PCBME ARPA radar simulator BCG’s PCBME ARPA radar simulator

Buffalo Computer Graphics (BCG) reports that it has delivered a series of simulation upgrades to Quality Maritime Training’s (QMT) facilities in both Jacksonville and Saint Petersburg, in the US state of Florida.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The software upgrades are being deployed in an effort to standardise the two BCG training simulators in use at QMT, the company said, allowing the training provider to offer the same curriculum at both of its sites and share a common set of training exercises.

Both the Jacksonville and Saint Petersburg locations are now running an instructor position and two student training stations. Each student has a fully functional ARPA radar (BCG’s PCBME), a Raytheon ECDIS, and BCG’s Virtual Steering Stand (VSS) software.

The equipment allows for navigation, radar operator and ECDIS training classes, with all of the simulation run on laptop computers.{/mprestriction}
