Subs To Use 3D Simulator for Training
The Navy’s Virginia-class submarines are among the most technically advanced vessels ever built. But even these cutting-edge, fast-attack, nuclear-powered boats need emergency generators on hand—and Sailors trained to operate and repair them.
Enter the new diesel generator simulator, delivered to Pearl Harbor naval facilities this month by the TechSolutions program at the Office of Naval Research. High-fidelity 3D software lets Sailors use 50-inch touch screens to see and access all parts of the massive generators aboard the Virginia-class subs.
