ALEXANDRIA, Va., November 30, 2012 – L-3 D.P. Associates (L-3 DPA) announced today that it has recently delivered upgrades of its Liquid Cargo Handling Simulator (LCHS) software to four maritime training academies and training centers. These LCHS upgrades, which include a new software platform and graphics engine, have been installed on existing LCHS training systems at Massachusetts Maritime Academy, Buzzards Bay, Mass.; Teekay Shipping Training Center and Italian Maritime Academy Philippines, both in Manila, Philippines; and Wärtsilä Land & Sea Academy, Subic Bay, Philippines.
“The enhanced graphics that have been integrated on L-3’s LCHS systems increase training scenario realism and improve the transfer of knowledge for junior and senior personnel responsible for handling bulk liquids and gases,” said Dennis Corrigan, president of L-3 DPA. “These software upgrades equip our customers with models to simulate any liquid cargo handling system and underscore our ongoing commitment to provide maritime academies and training centers with highly effective, state-of-the-art training solutions.”
L-3 DPA’s LCHS trains crewmembers on the use of modern control consoles and interfaces used in the day-to-day handling of bulk liquids and gases while at sea in modern vessels or at shore terminals. This PC-based system, which supports both individual and networked training, includes an instructor station connected to multiple student stations. Depending on the training objective, the LCHS systems can be configured as separate ships, multiple ships or grouped together as a single control room. Intelligent monitoring and feedback software supports student self-training, and serves as a sophisticated competence measurement and assessment system.
