BCG Delivers New Desktop Ship Simulator to Inlandboatmen’s Union
Buffalo Computer Graphics (BCG) Inc. has delivered a four (4) station Desktop Ship Simulator system to the Inlandboatmen’s Union ILWU Marine Division in San Pedro, CA. The training system consisted of an Instructor Station running BCG’s Maritime Simulation Tool (MaST) software for simulation control, along with four student training stations consisting of PCRadar (ARPA radar), ECDIS (Maris9000), Conning Display (our VSS), the Desktop Steering Console and a single channel Visual Display.
Using MaST, the instructor can set up four separate training scenarios with each student ship operating on their own, or a combined scenario with all four ships interacting with each other in a common area. The operator can control all aspects of the training from the MaST program including time of day, traffic ships, environmental conditions, AIS and many other features.
Each student station operates independently so the user can take full advantage of the operating their own vessel including maneuvering control. BCG provided instructor training on the system and will continue support with a full two (2) year warranty.
