Kongsberg Digital have launched a new cloud-based simulation service for maritime radar training. Used as an advanced e-learning tool, it enables instructors to manage and control exercises with realistic radar simulations to students, who can now practice and prepare for their exams anytime, anywhere and at their own pace.

The new K-Sim Navigation radar application introduces a new line of navigation instruments based on IMO performance standards, leveraging the K-Sim Navigation functionality and cutting-edge cloud technology. 

Designed to be compliant with the IMO Model Courses 1.07 and 1.08, it assists in delivery of learning objectives such as marine radar operational principles; radar navigation and plotting; use of radar in Search and Rescue (SAR); and use of ARPA.

The radar simulation application is the first in a line of training applications to be released on K-Sim Connect as part of the K-Sim Navigation portfolio. Within the next few months the radar application will be supplemented with ECDIS, followed by increased functionality for the complete cloud-based K-Sim Navigation, which will be compliant with all the requirements for ship officer training as stated in the STCW convention.
