For each simulation assignment, RISE communicates with the customer to ensure that the simulation has the right level of detail in both accuracy and cost efficiency. To reach the proper level, there are several areas that RISE will tailor to the customer's needs: Ship Dynamics, Modelling, Instrumentation, Visualization and Analysis.
The core of any serious nautical simulation is calculations on how the ship will react under the influence of the control forces and the ship’s environment. Our knowledge of ship dynamics stays at the forefront of the industry.
Even though the laws governing the behavior of ships in water are the same, every ship is unique. That is why RISE has methods to identify which factors are relevant in the behavior of a specific ship, and ways that these factors are accurately affecting the simulation of the ship.
To ensure that the ship can be maneuvered in a way that reflects reality, good instrumentation is fundamental. What is right for a specific simulation can range from a full mission bridge with instrumentation authentic to that of a real bridge, to a simple desktop mouse control.
Visually displaying the state of a simulation at any given moment is important. The purpose of this is to give the person controlling the ship the same situational awareness that they would have in a real situation, and to give other stakeholders in a simulation an intuitive grasp of situations. RISE delivers several types of visualizations to ensure the right option in a specific simulation, considering both accuracy of the simulation and the economics of it.
While the preparation and execution of the simulations are critical, they are wasted if the right conclusion cannot be drawn from their results. RISE has created several tools and methodologies to ensure that both quantitative and qualitative results of the simulation can be reported in a concise manner. Our commitment doesn’t stop with the performed simulation but continues until the correct conclusion has been reached.
