World’s only digital solution
Dive Control Simulator
A touch panel-based digital diving simulator for training diving supervisors and earn the IMCA diving certification
The work of diving supervisor is by the dive 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 dive control 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.It also eases the preparation for the IMCA certification
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.

IMCA Regulations for simulators
IMCA provides a regulation document, IMCAD013: Offshore Diving Supervisor and Life Support Technician Certification Schemes. This document sets the Minimum Requirements for Certification of Diving Supervisors.
According to IMCA grading, PaleBlue DCS is a Class B (fully digital) simulator.
Air Diving Supervisor
Up to 40 panel hours and 20 surface dives can be gained by 20 hands-on hours’ experience on a class B simulator working as a trainee air diving supervisor.
Bell Diving Supervisor
Up to 70 panel hours and 10 bell runs can be gained by 35 hands-on hours on a class B simulator.
Dive Control Simulator Using
We believe that training using diving 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.

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 resulted dive control panel is deployed to a work station with large touch monitors.
Diving Simulator Training
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.
Project rehearsal 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 an interface for integration with other types of simulator systems, so training in diving simulator can run in parallel with other simulator systems, such as crane simulator, DP simulation, ROV simulator, and other training systems.
