The latest version of SEA’s portable DECKsim virtual reality trainer has been officially accepted by the Royal Norwegian Navy (RNN), the company announced on 30 May.

Norway has used a fully integrated Flight Deck Officer (FDO) simulator DECKsim for five years at its training establishment in Haakonsvern Naval Base, Bergen. The new man-portable solution can be used to train personnel on board any ship or at any land-based facility.

The DECKsim system replicates ship flight decks and land-based airfield environments for training aircraft handling procedures.

The system can be configured for specific airframes, platforms and scenario requirements. It also delivers an environment where individuals can train in routine and emergency operating conditions, which is not possible with the live platform.

Andy McGowan, business development executive, SEA, said: ‘DECKsim harnesses the latest developments in virtual reality technology embodied within a modular system and users around the world have already benefited from considerable improvements in training effectiveness and the costs of delivering FDO training.’
