World’s only digital solution
Dive Control Simulator
A touch panel-based digital simulator for the training of diving supervisors
The work of diving supervisor is by the control panels. Those are the panels to control life parameters of the diving crew, during an underwater operation. The parameters include oxygen, temperature, and pressure, among others.
Valves and buttons
System can model traditional and digital control surfaces. Traditional panels feature hardware gauges, meters, and levers – for interaction with touch. More modern ones show computer monitor-based buttons and controls.
Dive Control Simulator gives simulated scenarios training to diving supervisors, with normal operations, what-ifs and emergency cases covered. This is makes a simulator stand out, compared to training in real operation conditions.
No custom hardware is required, as the simulator runs on off-the-shelf hardware components: computers and touch monitors. The system can be provided as a full package including the hardware, or as a software-only system.
We believe that training using simulator technology will be a significant and valuable supplement to the offshore industry in terms of training, qualifying and certifying air and bell diving supervisors. PaleBlue technology can potentially play a significant role in this market.
- Performs as a diving supervisor
- Runs operational checklists
- Follows operation plan
- Communicates to divers
- Communicates to vessel teams
- Responds to introduced situations
- Oversees training process
- Directs the training operation
- Runs communication
- Initiates what-if scenarios
- Launches emergencies
- Triggers panel alarms
For Dive Control Simulator, we have taken control panels of dive support vessels and carefully digitized them to the last knob, making sure all the details are in place. Then, we have programmed the controls to respond to touch interaction. The result is deployed to a work station with large touch monitors.
Training that is fully immersive
Skinnable nature of Icon touch panel engine, on which Dive Control Simulator is based, allows to switch panel screen views among different designs as needed.
Simultaneous Operations Training
Simultaneous operations, or SIMOPS, means running different offshore operations at the same time, for example, crane and diving or DP and diving.
Dive Control Simulator provides interface for integration with other types of simulator systems, so training in diving can be run in parallel with other simulator systems, such as crane simulator, DP simulation, ROV simulator, and other training systems.
