SeaBotix and BlueView Simulator for Efficient Operator Training

SeaBotix and BlueView Simulator for Efficient Operator Training

18-Jun-2018 The Royal Canadian Navy operates a total of six Teledyne SeaBotix simulators with BlueView multibeam sonar across three national locations. The simulator capability includes simulation of dual vehicle missions and a range of training content for Navy ROV pilots, including:
High fidelity BlueView multibeam sonar
Surface splash zone dynamics
Realistic tether and manipulator dynamics 

The simulation capability supports team-training using Teledyne SeaBotix and BlueView simulation, with a focus on team-training capacity for multiple surface vessels, launch and recovery systems, and vehicle classes in a single scenario through Common Operating Picture simulation. The Common Operating Picture training mission features six controllable surface vessels with four subsea platforms vehicles (including Teledyne SeaBotix vLBV950, SeaBotix vLBC, an AUV, and Workclass ROV) operating in a single coordinated graphical and dynamic setting in a mine-countermeasures and submarine rescue scenario. 

For hull inspection the simulator provides high fidelity simulation for operation of the SeaBotix Little Benthic Crawler (LBC).

Simulation based training supports rapid skill development for Navy ROV pilots when fast proficiency development is required when changing roles due to postings. The simulations support realistic training and operation of sonars, manipulators and a range of measures. The simulation supports assessment of proficiency and training can be conducted without the need for continued presence of experienced training supervisors.

Missions included in the simulator are:
Ship hull and infrastructure security
Mine countermeasures
Search and Rescue
Body Searching
Evidence Collection
Black Box Recovery
Oil& Gas inspection

The simulator runs on a single laptop with the SeaBotix OCU hand controller and Seanet Pro Control Software. The simulator also supports training and development of autonomous systems.

 Instructor view of ROV operations supports training and assessment of pilot progress.

 Black Box recovery mission is an important ROV task.
