Kongsberg Maritime has delivered a new high-speed navigation simulator to the Royal Norwegian Naval Academy.

The new Polaris ship's bridge simulator exactly replicates the bridge aboard the navy's Skjold Class missile torpedo boats (MTB).

The Skjold simulator features a 240° visual system that provides highly realistic scenarios for officer training while simulating the Skjold MTB movements at sea.

In addition, the bridge simulator is interfaced to real navigation equipment, which comprises three multifunction displays, AP 2000 adaptive autopilot, custom-made bridge consoles and a voyage data recorder as well as operator panels and control systems for four gas turbines.

Kongsberg Maritime previously delivered six Polaris bridge simulators, one frigate trainer and one desktop engine room simulator to the academy.
