“MPT (has) a dynamic and on-going upgrade process that identi? es key areas of improvement and takes steps to integrate those enhancements. This is done on a six-month cycle wherein computers, graphics, cards, hardware interfaces, software, etc., are all evaluated and upgraded. Improvements and additions to ship models and geographical areas are also addressed,” said Capt. Ted Morley.

ARI simulators are DNV-GL certi? ed to the highest Class A standards, and use Windows-based technologies and a

GPU-based visualization engine. In or- der to future-proof simulator solutions,

ARI also uses common off-the-shelf equipment with the latest platforms commercially available to ensure the user is not dependent on any propri- etary platforms or technologies which could cause problems in the upgrade process. High-accuracy, high-perfor- mance mathematical models relate across every process that is simulated, giving as close to real a feel as possible.

Flexibility is important in customiza- tion. For instance, for naval custom- ers, when combining bridge simulation with machinery control room simu- lation, Combat Information Centre,

Combat Management System, weapon- ry systems and other simulation play- 27
