  • Cruden to demonstrate fast small ship simulator at I/ITSEC 2017

    ORLANDO, FL – Cruden, the leading designer, manufacturer and integrator of training and R&D simulators, will highlight the benefits of simulators to crew training for high speed boat handling, navigation, drills and tactics scenarios at I/ITSEC 2017. On booth 313, Cruden will offer live demonstrations of its fast small ship simulator that has been developed to offer training organisations: increased hours; reduced costs; repeatable, programmable conditions and scenarios; realistic and detailed data-led AAR; and protection to trainers and trainees from physical stress.

    “Cruden is already well-known as a provider of training simulators, from our background in the motorsport, automotive and aerospace industries. However, we are seeing a particular need for a highly realistic, dynamic training tool, as an addition to  training at sea. This is why visitors to I/ITSEC will be able to experience something completely different this year,” says Cruden CEO, Maarten van Donselaar.

    “While scenario-based simulator training is established for larger vessels, Cruden has introduced a completely new concept in the high speed boat simulator, which uses detailed modelling and motion-cueing techniques and professional image generation, to present a cost-effective solution for any training situation where motion and dynamic feedback are important factors.”

    Cruden’s experts in attendance at I/ITSEC are also deeply involved in simulation, modelling and training for ground-based vehicles. As an important feature for military and law enforcement: Weapon simulation can be added as a fully integrated solution.
