IMDEX 2019: ST Engineering launches its new Integrated Ship Bridge Simulator


Also showcased by ST Engineering at IMDEX are solutions designed for smart maintenance which include predictive maintenance, maintenance management and VR training. Making its debut at IMDEX 2019, the Integrated Ship Bridge Simulator offers a realistic environment that promotes collaborative training in ship-handling, engineering watch and combat operations for the navy crew.

Designed as an Integrated Command Centre, the Ship’s bridge, Combat Information Centre (CIC) and Machinery Control stations are centralised to promote collaborative training between various operational roles. Equipped with actual shipboard equipment and high fidelity 360-degree projection, it delivers an immersive out-the-window (OTW) view of the ship’s surroundings for navigation training and conducting of combat procedures.

The system features Virtual Reality (VR) stations that enhance realism with targeted scenarios including berthing and dealing with small vessel threats. From basic ship handling to complex mission rehearsals, the Integrated Ship Bridge Simulator offers a highly realistic and e¬ffective training environment for instructors and crew members to hone their technical and combat skills.

“In today’s context, it is no longer feasible to focus only on one aspect of maritime defence and expect a foolproof solution. With rapidly evolving digital technology, engineering innovations like what we have featured here at IMDEX 2019 demonstrate the full spectrum of maritime defence and security needs – from in-house proprietary ship designs, ship construction, to smart autonomous solutions and integrated digital defence solutions.

At the heart of it all, we are showcasing indigenous defence capabilities that are diverse enough to value-add and help our partners take future-proofing of maritime security and defence to the next level,” said Chew Men Leong, Chief Marketing Officer, ST Engineering and Deputy President & President (Defence Business), Marine.
