CAE understands the critical importance of safe navigation and collision avoidance in designing its integrated maritime training solutions. Combining its expertise in synthetic environments with those of a Bridge Trainer provider, CAE develops and delivers integrated bridge training solutions that prepare trainees both as individuals and as team members for navigating and operating their ships at sea. Simulation models are selected for the level of fidelity required by the customer while also meeting the appropriate accredited certification. Key elements include representative hydrodynamics, fitted navigation aids and sensors such as a radar. If required, individual consoles can be made reconfigurable to represent more than one ship class for crew and joint training.
