· Transas signs a prestigious contract with City of Glasgow College
10 April 2014 .
April, 2014 – United Kingdom. On March 14, Transas Marine and City of Glasgow College signed a contract to supply a simulation complex. The simulation centre in the Riverside campus which is under construction, will be one of the largest, the most up to date and most technically advanced simulation suite in the UK. Training courses are expected to start in Autumn 2015.
Image Copyright 2006-2013 Transas. All rights reserved
The ship simulator suite forms a core part of the new Riverside Campus and the complex nature of the equipment and fit out require a high degree of integration with the New Campus NPD Co (Scottish Government's Non Profit Distributing revenue funded procurement model) design. Transas provided technical integration input into the refinement of design for the New NPD Campus project.
The simulator suite will include a full mission engine room simulator, three simulator labs: for studying of electronic navigation systems, GMDSS training, liquid cargo handling and DP operations training. Ship handling simulators part will house four part-task bridges with 135° visualisation and a 360° full mission ship handling simulator which will be used for advanced training and certification.
Iain Marley, Project Director, City of Glasgow College remarks: "Due to expected growth in maritime training over the coming years and introduction of the Manila Amendments of the Standards for Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) 2010 conference, the College acknowledges that in order to maintain its position within the sector, both nationally and internationally, that now is an ideal time to enhance the provision of simulation equipment installed previously. The requirement for leadership and management courses at all levels, but particularly at the operational and management levels, as defined in STCW 2010, has also influenced the identification of requirements. This is true particularly in regards to the connectivity of individual items of simulation equipment, as joint training of deck and engineering officers for certain aspects of leadership and management training will now become mandatory. The expected demand for growth in dynamic positioning training has also been a major factor in the design of the simulation equipment."
Frasca First to Integrate Garmin’s GTN 650 Into Flight Simulators
Frasca International, Inc. Urbana, IL has recently delivered flight training devices (FTDs) with Garmin GTN 650 avionics, making them the first simulator manufacturer to integrate these new avionics into FTDs.
Garmin’s GTN 650/750 series is the long-awaited replacement for the incredibly popular GNS 430/530 series. It features the latest WAAS GPS features, electronic charts, integrated NAV/COM radio, traffic displays, and full Class B TAWS terrain alerting – all controlled by an intuitive touch screen interface.
Fleet owners who retrofit their existing aircraft fleet with newer avionics may now match their simulators to their aircraft, thus enabling flight students to transfer more learning from the simulator to the aircraft. The first customer to request GTN 650’s into their simulators is Sault College with their Frasca-built Zlin 242L Level 5 FTD.
Frasca was also the first company to integrate the (now ubiquitous) Garmin GNS 430 into flight simulators. In fact, it was Frasca’s engineers who wrote the original Interface Control Document (ICD) for GNS 430 GPS’s to be installed into simulators – all other simulator manufacturers have used the updated version of this same ICD. Over the years Frasca has built over 100 simulators with GNS-430 (and 430W) GPS’s.

· A new ship navigation simulator is helping engineers design autonomous freighters that can cross the oceans without a crew.
Advances in GPS, auto pilot, radars and sensors mean that the bridge of a modern ship is already largely automated and partners from five different countries working under the EU project MUNIN (Maritime Unmanned Navigation through Intelligence in Networks) are using this technology to develop and test a concept for an unmanned freighter.
Such a vessel would be primarily guided by an automated on-board decision systems, but controlled by a remote operator in on shore control station, and the goal for the project is to have a fully working computer simulation that allows experts to test and review their ideas on a virtual basis by autumn 2015 ahead of a decision to fit out a real ship with the automated system.
