The NAUTIS Full Mission Bridge Simulator jointly developed by VSTEP, Damen Shipyards and Alphatron Marine for the Royal Bahamas Defense Force (RBDF) has successfully passed factory acceptance testing (FAT).
The RBDF is acquiring a range of Damen patrol vessels and upgrading its existing fleet.
The bridge of the simulator replicates four different Damen vessels, achieved by a changeable steering console with touch screen panels.
The simulator is based on the latest version 3.0 of NAUTIS featuring graphics, advanced ship dynamics and increased accuracy and visual fidelity of the sea, allowing for the most realistic training possible.
With the completion of FAT, the project will now progress to the next phase where the installation of the simulator in the Bahamas will be completed. Final touches will also be made on the virtual environment, which will make the entire Bahamas available in NAUTIS.
