Simulation and navigation – new partnership
A global innovator of maritime simulation technology and an advanced navigation system developer and provider have formed a new partnership.
Kongsberg Digital and SeaCross are set to use the joint strength of the two companies to focus on developing unique and effective products and end-to-end solutions for high-speed navigation and fast craft simulation
Designed to provide trainees with a realistic perception of operating in a real-life environment, Kongsberg Digital’s K-Sim Fast Craft Simulator technology utilises an advanced physics engine, motion system and hydrodynamic vessel modelling capabilities to replicate the behaviour of high-speed vessels in various sea states and at all speeds. This allows military and professional fast craft operators to perform efficient, safe and repeatable training in tactical scenarios, that would be dangerous, expensive and resource-demanding to do in real life.
Based on experience and knowledge gained from operating high-speed craft in exceptionally demanding navigational environments, the SeaCross navigation system has been developed for use in craft which can attain speeds of up to 100 knots in challenging littoral waters or open seas and includes unique capabilities that are specific to operators of high-speed interceptors, SAR vessels, patrol vessels, or any operator requiring accurate real-time data they can trust
Modular, scalable and fully integrated, the SeaCross navigation system is currently in use on a large number of vessels around the world; primary customers are Special Forces, Police, Firefighting vessels, Coastguard, SAR, and Naval Forces.
“Kongsberg and SeaCross have already been co-operating with common clients including police, naval and special forces,” says Lars Klemmetsby, VP Business & Development Defense, Kongsberg Digital, “and this exciting new partnership arrangement further strengthens our co-operation and allows us to benefit from SeaCross’ vast knowledge and experience within high-speed navigation and fast craft operations. Jointly we are able to offer the highest quality solutions for navigation and simulator training within this segment.”
“Kongsberg’s K-Sim Fast Craft simulator technology offers a unique addition in the training programs our customers conduct to secure safety and effectiveness when using the SeaCross navigation system,” adds Axel Törneman, SeaCross Marine AB. “By combining our expertise and technology, users will be able to leverage the power of the SeaCross system when they come to deploy it in real-life situations.”
