Ship simulator with NMEA and AIS support

vSHIP is specifically designed to train and prepare ship board personnel for the ever growing roles and responsibilities they face offshore. Flexible scalability, unmatched visual realism, and compliance to a wide range of industry standard interfaces are all integral to the simulator’s design.

Available as a desktop PC based simulator, vSHIP can interface with marine electronics and navigation software via industry standard interfaces, as well as with other vSHIP and ROVsim Pro installations, providing a real world, coordinated operation simulation. Drawing on our experience in undersea simulation, vSHIP sets a new level of unmatched visual realism and advanced physics simulation.
