SEA delivers DECKsim to the Royal Norwegian Navy


SEA, December 05, 2012 - SEA, a Cohort PLC company, has delivered the latest, third generation Flight Deck Officer Training System (DECKsim) to the Royal Norwegian Naval Training Establishment (RNoNTE). This particular DECKsim now includes the latest gesture recognition technology and updated scenario builder.

DECKsim allows rapid development of training scenarios within a high fidelity synthetic environment. It has been developed using SEA’s immersive procedure training infrastructure. The deployed system provides a wide range of training scenarios, from basic aircraft marshalling to complex vertical replenishment and high line in-flight refuelling. It delivers significant reductions to the cost of training by reducing the number of ‘live’ flight hours, environmental impact and man hours.

The DECKsim infrastructure provides a high fidelity training solution for all maritime and land based flight deck operations and has the advantage of being able to be configured and deployed within short development timescales.

The key additions to the third generation DECKsim system, in use by the RNoNTE, include:

  • Full integration of gesture recognition using Microsoft’s Kinect™ hardware for the marshalling of aircraft
  • A fully dynamic Ship Helicopter Operating Limits (SHOL) computer simulation system
  • An updated Scenario Builder with improved Graphical User Interface (GUI)
  • Further emergency training scenarios and enhancements to the visual effects in the simulation engine.

    Steve Hill, Managing Director, SEA, said:

    "When you combine all of the latest updates, existing system capabilities and a solution that can be deployed as either fixed or portable, it is easy to see why DECKsim is the ideal solution for advanced high fidelity Flight Deck Officer Training and puts SEA at the forefront of Synthetic Environment Procedural Training development."

    Jarl Inge Nielsen, Chief of Helicopter Branch, Centre of tactics and doctrine, Haakonsvern Naval base, said:

    "Over the last few years Norway, as well as many other nations, has been suffering from reduced budgets but we are obliged to do the same work for less costs. The main need behind the simulator is saving money and being able to educate more students within the same timeframe. The student will have increased their capability before the seagoing phase. The students that do not perform well in the simulator will not participate in the seaphase, that way we will not use valuable flight hours on students that are likely to fail the exam. The simulator will also be a tool to maintain the flight deck officers skills, which will also save valuable flight hours that can be used for operational flights."
