Buffalo Computer Graphics (BCG) Inc. has launched a turnkey desktop ship simulator that adds a visual component to the company’s existing line of radar and communication simulation products.
The system represents the integration of BCG products with third party software for a complete desktop simulator which features an out of window single channel visual display.
The simulator is scalable to meet the requirements and budget of the customer; but is suited for small schools looking to add ECDIS and Radar/ARPA capability to their list of available course offerings, BCG said.
Included in the simulator is an IMO approved ECDIS, one of BCG’s radar emulations and a selection of ownship controls to allow each student to maneuver his or her vessel.
The system will be delivered as a turnkey system with the software installed and including monitors and all computer accessories. Instructor control is through BCG’s Enhanced Graphical User Interface workstation. For configurations that utilize multiple student positions BCG will provide the required network hardware and cables.
