Simulator 'spark plug' for the U.S. Navy submarine
Prototype of Submarine Bridge Trainer (SBT) facilitates the training of the most critical phase in the operation of submarines, outputs and inputs of port
Using a series of projectors Barco SIM 5, the U.S. Navy developed the "Submarine Trainer Bridge," which provides students a high-resolution immersive experience that simulates the sail of a submarine.
The system was developed by the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWCDIVNPT) in Newport and allows eight students and an instructor lead training and undocking of attraction, increasing the skills of the crew, safety and efficiency of these operations.
For years only the pilots relied on the ease of flight simulators to help in the training and emergency procedures. And now, with the SBT, the sailors have the same level of control and realism to the training.
