Introduction to Poseidon Borealis Navigation Simulator System

Poseidon was the first manufacturer to develop and distibute a PC-based simulator for radar navigation training when the PC's became commercially available in the early nineties. Before this all training was carried out on real ship equipment and using PC-technology was a brakthrough both with regards to pedagogics and cost efficiency.

The Poseidon Borealis Navigation Simulator system has been developed through many stages and both smaller desk-top solutions and full bridge set-ups are installed throughout the world.

A training system for navigators can consist of various simulator modules, depending on the specific training objective, the trainees level of competence and the number of trainees that shall attend the trainng course.

There are obvious differences on ratings training at a maritime school and training of experienced proffesionals. Therefore our customers can choose the modules needed according to their curriculum and to either have a general system or various degrees of customization.
