The simulated environment of Aboa Mare provides excellent opportunities for research, testing and product development. We also provide assistance in carrying out your studies as well as in finding sponsors and partners. Maritime simulations are our speciality in training, research, and product development.
Examples of the R&D projects of Aboa Mare in a simulated environment include the MONALISA 2.0 and BONUS STORMWINDS projects. A new e-navigation concept, Sea Traffic Management, and applications, such as an automatic exchange of route informations and voyage plans, have been developed in MONALISA 2.0 project. Aboa Mare joined the testing of these applications in cooperation with other European simulator training centres. Moreover, in the BONUS STORMWINDS project, Aboa Mare´s simulators are used in the testing of new solutions for optimizing the route of a vessel in icy conditions.
Our most recent project is the Arctic Simulator Training Program (ASTP), which is developing a next-generation simulator for arctic conditions and other challenges. The objective of the project is that the simulator can provide high-quality training for handling a vessel, ice navigation, icebreaker operations, and escort towing. The simulator utilizes decades of ice data collected by Aker Arctic. Development work is carried out in cooperation with professionals of seafaring, ice, training, simulation, and mathematical modelling.
