KONGSBERG AND SEACROSS JOIN FORCES IN FAST CRAFT SIMULATION

Tuesday, September 10, 2019 

Maritime simulation technology specialist Kongsberg Digital and SeaCross, the company behind the advanced SeaCross navigation system for safe and effective high-speed craft operation, have announced a new partnership.

The pairing will focus on developing unique and effective products and end-to-end solutions for high-speed navigation and fast craft simulation. The training aspect is covered by Kongsberg Digital’s K-Sim Fast Craft Simulator technology. Designed to provide trainees with a realistic perception of operating in a real-life environment, the simulator utilises an advanced physics engine, motion system and hydrodynamic vessel modelling capabilities to replicate the behaviour of high-speed vessels in various sea states and at all speeds.

The SeaCross navigation system has been developed for use in craft which can attain speeds of up to 100 knots in the challenging environments of littoral waters or open seas. The system has been developed based on experience and knowledge derived from operating high-speed craft in this demanding navigational environment. The SeaCross navigation system is a modular, scalable and fully integrated system, specifically designed to meet the requirements for high-speed operations and includes unique capabilities that are specific to operators of high-speed interceptors, SAR vessels, patrol vessels, or any operator requiring accurate real-time data they can trust.

“Kongsberg and SeaCross have already been co-operating with common clients including police, naval and special forces,” said Lars Klemmetsby, VP Business & Development Defence, Kongsberg Digital, “and this exciting new partnership arrangement further strengthens our co-operation and allows us to benefit from SeaCross’ vast knowledge and experience within high-speed navigation and fast craft operations. Jointly we are able to offer the highest quality solutions for navigation and simulator training within this segment.”

“Kongsberg’s K-Sim Fast Craft simulator technology offers a unique addition in the training programs our customers conduct to secure safety and effectiveness when using the SeaCross navigation system,” said Axel Törneman, SeaCross Marine. “By combining our expertise and technology, users will be able to leverage the power of the SeaCross system when they come to deploy it in real-life situations.”
