Thales Canada is investing more than $315,000 in a new research and development project to enhance Virtual Marine’s embedded ship simulation system, the company announced on 3 October.

The 12-month, multi-phase research project aims to create an advanced ship simulator software product that will support advanced platform testing and integration needs for programmes such as Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ships and Joint Support Ships In-Service Support (AJISS).

The simulator system will be flexible to allow for current and new ship types and equipment configurations for use across multiple vessels and projects in both naval, coast guard and commercial applications.

Jamie Turcotte, VP, services, Thales Canada, said: ‘This investment in R&D and supplier development reflects Thales’ deep commitment to innovation and digital transformation in Canada.

‘As one of its first supplier development activities under AJISS, Thales is excited by the potential for Virtual Marine’s advanced ship simulator capabilities that will help ensure that Canada’s Arctic and Offshore Patrol Vessels and Joint Support Ships are mission ready where and when they are needed.’
