Ship simulator for maritime demonstrations and training

vSHIP 2.0 is designed for flexible scalability, unmatched visual realism, realistic physics simulation and compliance to a wide range of industry standard interfaces. Ideally suited for interfacing, training and demonstration of modern marine electronics.


Available as a 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.

vSHIP is used by Hamilton Jet for their trade show display.

Oceanographic Buoy Mission

This mission includes a mid-ocean weather buoy.  Locate the buoy on RADAR and maneuver close enough to recover the buoy for repairs.  Be sure to monitor and avoid any ship traffic.

Offshore Oil Rig Mission

This mission includes an offshore oil platform located in the Gulf of Mexico.  Be sure to avoid the other AHTS while coming alongside the platform.

Coastal Wind Farm Mission

This mission is located in a wind farm facility off the European coast.  Navigate the island’s coast line while avoiding shoals and obstacles.

Industrial Port Mission

Make your approach to the harbor and beware of the shoals just outside of the marked channel.  Beware of the outbound freighter.  Moor your vessel on the floating dock once inside the harbor’s break wall.
