Ships and Marine Technology – Virtual reality and simulator training equipment and systems for lifesaving appliances and arrangements

Scope of the proposed deliverable

This international standard provides general provisions and minimum criteria for virtual reality and simulator equipment and systems used for training, drills and maintenance of lifesaving appliances.

Purpose and justification of the proposal

This standard will support the use of virtual reality (VR) and simulator technologies in at least three areas of the maritime community.

    1. First, it will provide a consensus standard for traditional brick-and- mortar maritime training schools that want to augment their live training with virtual reality and simulators to improve the student’s training experience. In this manner, it will support certification required under STCW. The use of VR and simulator technology is already a mainstay in many traditional maritime schools for bridge management and navigation, and the market is growing for this type of training specific to lifesaving appliances (LSA).
    2. Second, the standard would support training in the operation and maintenance of conventional LSA, where “live” training with the LSA is limited or restricted due to: operational factors; company policies; inclement weather; sea-state; operating schedules; port restrictions; etc.. This is particularly advantageous for the mariners undergoing pre-arrival training to their next ship. Additionally, training for onboard survival craft and associated appliances and arrangements such as free-fall lifeboats and davit-launched life rafts that are traditionally limited in their “live” training usage could benefit from VR and/or simulator technology.
    3. Third, LSA that are technologically advanced and novel may not be practicable for both live training and traditional deployment frequencies. Due to the nature of such alternative designs and arrangements, the need for VR and simulator training for these types of LSA is particularly valuable to provide the necessary, consistent training frequency and familiarity for the mariners who will operate and maintain them.

Is there a verified market need for the proposal?

Yes, in discussions with LSA manufacturers, traditional brick-and-mortar maritime schools, mariners, shipping and maritime companies, and developers of simulators, the market for such technology is already here.

What problem does this document solve?

It is intended to provide a standard of characteristics and capabilities for various levels of VR and simulator training equipment and systems specific to operating and maintaining lifesaving appliances. A standard of characteristics and capabilities of VR and simulator training could be aligned to standards for certification under STCW or other qualification and training programs designed by the manufacturer, ship operator, or required by an Administration.

What value will the document bring to end-users?

It will provide a level of assurance to users that the equipment and systems of VR and simulator technology in the maritime community are based on a consensus standard so that no matter where they go, they can be assured they are using a product that meets a specific standard. This standard is not intended to define what training must occur, rather it is intended to provide a standard of various capabilities and functions the VR or simulator equipment and/or systems could provide as a means to support the training.

Über die NSMT

Die DIN-Normenstelle Schiffs- und Meerestechnik (NSMT) in Hamburg ist zuständig für die nationale Normung auf dem Gebiet der Schiffs- und Meerestechnik. Außerdem ist die NSMT verantwortlich für die deutsche Mitarbeit in den entsprechenden europäischen und internationalen Gremien.

Über die ISO

Die Internationale Organisation für Normung ISO ist die zuständige Normungsorganisationen und erarbeitet internationale Normen für fast alle Bereiche mit wenigen Ausnahme. Stand 2015 sind 162 Länder in der ISO vertreten. Hiervon sind 119 member bodies (Vollmitglieder), 39 correspondent members (korrespondierende Mitglieder) und 4 subscriber members (haben Beobachtungsstatus). Jedes Mitglied vertritt ein Land, wobei es aus jedem Land auch nur ein Mitglied gibt. Das Deutsche Institut für Normung e. V. (DIN) ist seit 1951 Mitglied der ISO für die Bundesrepublik Deutschland.

Über ISO TC8

ISO / TC 8 ist ein technisches Komitee innerhalb der Internationalen Organisation für Normung, das Normen und andere Dokumente in Bezug auf Methoden und Grundsätze für Terminologie und Sprachressourcen zu den Bereichen Seefahrt, Schiffstechnik und Navigation erstellt. Das deutsche DIN-NSMT-Gremium spiegelt die nachfolgenden internationalen Gremien
