Kongsberg simulator upgrades for Australian Navy

Kongsberg Digital reports that it has been selected to deliver and support a package of ship’s bridge simulators for the Royal Australian Navy, to be used to reduce the costs associated with qualifying bridge watch keepers and other staff before going to sea.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The simulators will be delivered for installation at a new training facility at HMAS Stirling in Perth starting May 2019, with the existing bridge simulators at HMAS Watson in Sydney being upgraded from December 2018.

“The Royal Australian Navy has trained crew on Kongsberg ship’s bridge simulators since 1998, and our engine room simulators are also integral to its engineer training,” said Lars Klemmentsby, VP business development defence, Kongsberg Digital.

“Their high level of satisfaction over these past two decades has played a major role in this latest contract award, which confirms Kongsberg Digital’s position as the supplier of choice for both bridge and engine room simulation to the Australian Navy.”

The contract also includes an extension to an existing Long Term System Support Programme (LTSSP) agreement, designed to ensure high operational availability and access to new Kongsberg simulator developments.{/mprestriction}
