"Designing the simulator system for training and increasing the navigation skills of the marine corps, which has been sanctioned, took eight years during which we were able to indigenize the know-how," said Kazzem Alipour, the managing director of the knowledge-based company.
He explained that the structure of this training simulator is based on the instructor-student method with an instructor station and several student stations, adding that visualization of the sea environment and ports has been designed in accordance with the Iranian ports with 4K image quality.
“Also, the instructor’s simulator software enjoys the capability to design and implement various educational scenarios for students,” Alipour said.
“The simulator system has been built based on a real ship situation and it is compatible with the latest version of communication and navigation equipment of new ships in terms of software and hardware,” he added.
In a relevant development, another knowledge-based company active in production of advanced equipment in Iran succeeded in manufacturing a weather simulator chamber to simulate the atmospheric and environmental conditions.
“The design and production of chambers is one of activities of our company. Chambers are closed enclosures in which different weather conditions are simulated,” Mohammad Ali Balouchian, the managing director of the company, told ANA.
He added that researchers and manufacturers use these enclosures for innovation and increasing the safety of the products they produce, noting that different types of chambers exist and the chamber which works without vibration is one of the most widely used ones.
“Products in different climate should show the necessary resistance to different temperatures during production, transportation, storage and use, and therefore, chambers help the producers in this regard,” Balouchian said.
“This testing equipment can withstand the temperature range of minus 70 to 180 degrees and humidity of 0 to 98%,” he added, noting that chambers are used in production of car tires and pharmaceutical products, testing cars, and other industries.
