SEA has received a contract from the Royal Norwegian Navy (RNN) to provide upgraded portable DECKsim virtual reality (VR) trainers.

The new man-portable solution will enable the RNN to train personnel on any ship or at any land-based facility.

DECKsim replicates vessel flight decks and land-based airfield environments for training aircraft handling procedures. The DECKsim can be easily configured for specific airframes, platforms and scenario requirements.

Norway has used SEA’s fully integrated Flight Deck Officer (FDO) simulator DECKsim for five years at its naval training establishment in Bergen. 

Andy McGowan, business development executive, SEA, explained: ‘We have harnessed the latest developments in VR technology and embodied it within the modular DECKsim system. The result is a truly portable solution which efficiently addresses FDO ‘currency’ training and testing, which is a challenge for all organisations.’
