Our Training Center collaborates with the industry and academia in marine training-related R & D projects with the aim to further expand our knowledge base, improve our training courses and help optimize the use of simulators.
Simulation exercises are designed to produce collision avoidance trajectories, using a number of modelled ships of diverse types, sizes and maneuvering characteristics, as well as, custom environmental and traffic conditions.
Competence assessment in the areas of ship handling, cargo management and engineering for newly promoted Officers are conducted, based on a well-developed procedure aimed at capturing the training needs of the individual or a watch-keeping team.
Research is to be also undertaken on the behavior, reaction and decision making skills of Officers under simulated conditions, promoting the behavioral competences required in the maritime profession.
Incidents or dangerous situations, the reconstruction of which on a marine simulator helps the investigation process, can be also designed to help identify the root or contributory causes or verify the results of the analysis.
