WAGENINGEN ~ The Maritime Research Institute Netherlands and 2 specialist companies are developing a Fast Small Ship Simulator to train Dutch special forces for high-risk operations in rough seas. That training is now done by instructors aboard special ops craft who may spend 1,000 hours a year in “dynamic nautical situations.” That is jargon at-sea training missions, often in rough weather.

MARIN, the world’s largest maritime research institute, says soon operators of fast special ops craft will be trained in the Fast Small Ship Simulator. It makes more training sessions possible, causes fewer injuries, less wear-and-tear and lower fuel bills. Marin’s project partners are the Dutch defense ministry and Cruden and Tree C Technology _ 2 Dutch companies active in motion-based simulator technologies. Marin also carries out research for recreational boating and yachting.
