The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board’s (NTSB) Office of Marine Safety (OMS) in November installed BMT’s fully certified REMBRANDT navigation simulator system.
Dr. Phil Thompson, Director of Simulation and Training Products at BMT commented: “There is a growing momentum and awareness in statutory bodies worldwide, as well as other maritime stakeholders, of the value of digital evidence generation in automatic scene reconstruction and forensic analysis. One of the many capabilities of REMBRANDT includes its ability to automatically read VDR and AIS to deliver a high-fidelity 3D reconstruction.
“REMBRANDT also allows the user to switch seamlessly from its scene reconstruction mode into full manoeuvring simulator mode, taking full control at any time within the reconstruction replay to explore a range of alternative ‘what if’ scenarios – a key enabler for targeted training, forensic analysis and reflective learning.”
Other statutory marine agencies that have recently adopted BMT’s REMBRANDT simulator system in-house include the UK’s Marine Accident Investigation Branch, the Australian Transport Safety Board and the Dutch Safety Board. Additionally, the REMBRANDT software is used by a large number of international maritime stakeholders for applications ranging from the onboard training of deck officers, port navigational risk assessments, pilot training, planning complex manoeuvres and Ship to Ship transfers.
The U.S. NTSB is an independent federal agency charged with investigating major marine accidents on or under the navigable waters, internal waters, or the territorial waters of the U.S. and accidents involving U.S. flagged vessels worldwide.
The NTSB seeks to determine the probable cause and identify safety recommendations which will prevent similar events in the future, and also investigates accidents involving U.S. public vessels and non-public vessels, and accidents that may involve the United States Coast Guards’ marine safety functions.
