Cruden, a 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 the Interservice Industry Training Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) 2018, at booth 712. Cruden will offer live demonstrations of its Fast Craft Simulator that the company says offers training organizations increased hours; reduced costs; repeatable, programmable conditions and scenarios; realistic and detailed data-led AAR and protection to trainers and trainees from physical stress.

“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,” says Cruden CEO, Maarten van Donselaar.
