Drilling skills on the simulator follows the operational scheme that is below.
Students, while on the embarkation station, board the lifeboat, fixed on a 6 DoF dynamic platform. A coxswain takes place at the steering wheel. After boarding and preparation the coxswain initiates freefall launching. Then the coxswain clears the ship’s side and carries out handling the lifeboat in different weather conditions including rough sea.
All students can feel some stress during launching, emergence and being in the lifeboat, but in safe manner.
The dynamic platform ensures the movement of the lifeboat along the trajectories and at the speed set in the software, including freefall launching and float free, as well as the behavior of the lifeboat on the water surface in rough sea.
