Rheinmetall’s ship handling simulation “Advanced Nautical Simulator” (ANS) product line represents one of the most modern and comprehensive Ship Handling Simulators in the market. With ANS simulators, fundamental, basic and expert training can be conducted for maritime training and education from inexperienced junior officers to experienced officers of the watch. Moreover, the quality of simulation and the fidelity of mathematical models allow conducting research and development projects.
Stefan Vogelsang (Vice President System Integration Maritime Simulation) stated:
“Very important for the training is the visual representation of the projected scenarios, especially brightness, contrast and a very good black value are essential. For this, the high-quality and technically mature products from Norxe are the first choice for us. Moreover Rheinmetall uses Norxe high-end projectors for the training systems of flight and land simulation in combination with IR and motion platforms.”
The systems high flexibility of ANS allows customized training solutions from desktop trainers to part task cubicles up to full mission bridges including bridge mock-up with real IBS or emulated navigation equipment and vessel specific controls.
All simulators follow the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping guidelines (STCW) set out by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). ANS has been designed for training and research activities in accordance to the STCW regulations of IMO and have been certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV).
