Kongsberg Digital announced it has received a SGD21.2 million contract to deliver tactical boat handling and firing simulators to Singapore Coast Guard.
Hailed by the company as a landmark contract, it will see Kongsberg Digital Maritime Simulation deliver four K-Sim Tactical Boat Handling and Firing Simulators by 2020 with a 10-year maintenance agreement to the Singapore Police Coast Guard.
The new simulator facility is being established to provide realistic tactical boat handling and fast interception training for the Singapore Police Coast Guard. Kongsberg Digital will deliver four high speed craft simulators replicating different boat types with a 240 HFOV (horizontal field of view) on full motion platforms, two instructor operator stations and two briefing/debriefing rooms.
The simulators will also be equipped with weapon capabilities, provided by a third-party, for multiple weapon types to facilitate highly realistic and full-scale tactical training and provide trainees with the perception of operating in actual environments.
“We are proud of our proven ability to deliver advanced systems of this caliber, providing Singapore Police Coast Guard with simulation training capability on an entirely new level,” says Tone-Merete Hansen, senior vice president of Kongsberg Digital. “A financial commitment of this magnitude underscores our belief that simulator training is an absolutely crucial resource in the modern, ever-changing maritime environment.”
