VSTEP and its local partner, Pranatec, upgraded existing simulators for Fidena, the Mexican education authority, with the latest version of the NAUTIS software. The installation at the first two locations was successful and fully accepted by the customer.

In 2014, VSTEP was awarded the contract to install brand new NAUTIS simulators at three locations: Veracruz, Tampico and Mazatlán. The Fidena schools, now managed by the Mexican Navy, used NAUTIS simulators for over seven years. During this time, NAUTIS simulators have never impeded or limited their training. Satisfied with the performance and capabilities of the NAUTIS simulator, Fidena decided to move forward with VSTEP and contracted the company in December 2021.

VSTEP has upgraded Fidena’s simulators with the latest software version including new radars and ECDIS systems. The complete scope ranges from NAUTIS Class A simulators with projection screens to NAUTIS Tug simulators for each location.
