Wärtsilä Navigational Simulators

Wärtsilä VTS Simulation and Training Solutions

For comprehensive and reality-based training and certification of VTS operators and supervisors.

Overview

Our VTS Simulation and Training equipment and software imitate all the main VTS functions and allow instructors to create areas with different navigational situations, control target ships and generate various training scenarios and tasks. VTS simulators fully correspond to the functional capabilities of our actual VTS systems operating in dozens of ports worldwide. VTS simulators can operate in a common environment with navigational and GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress and Safety System) simulators. This enables interactive group exercises under instructor supervision.

The simulators comply and exceed relevant requirements stated in IALA (International Association of Lighthouse Authorities) recommendation V-103 on Standards for Training and Certification of VTS Personnel.

Simulation Trainings available for

  • Full mission simulator: The simulator equipment and software imitate all main VTS functions, allowing the instructor to create areas with different navigational situations, control target ships and generate various training scenarios and tasks.  
  • Functionalities correspond to actual VTS systems operating in dozens of ports worldwide that provide comprehensive training in procedural knowledge, reactive capabilities, and emergency responses.  
  • Networked class: The simulator can operate in a shared environment with navigational and GMDSS simulators. This enables interactive group exercises under instructor supervision.
  • Remote training: Computer-based training enables individual in-house or distance learning regarding equipment familiarisation, knowledge refreshers, self-examination, and competence assessment. 

Key features

  • Full functionality of an actual VTS operator workplace. 
  • Information on the current simulated navigational situation based on radar, chart, AIS (Automatic Identification System), RDF (Radio Direction Finders), and other data.
  • Detection of local traffic rules infringement. 
  • Record/playback: targets tracks, audio, sensor data
  • Simulated CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) provides an accurate view of the monitored area.
  • 3D imitation of the view from the control tower. 
  • Imitation of the Radio Direction Finder. 
  • Interconnection with the navigational simulator. 
  • Compliance: Wärtsilä VTS simulators comply and exceed relevant requirements stated in IALA recommendation V-103 on Standards for Training and Certification of VTS Personnel.
