Paper Abstract

This paper introduces the main functions and technologies used in distributed full-mission marine simulator developed by Dalian Maritime University recently. As a facility for research analysis, captain training, engineering design, the simulation system has advantages of high accuracy mathematical model, low price and can display three dimension scene with 270 degree viewing field, ship dynamic image on ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display Information System) and radar image of certain sea area for training. The paper describes the main technologies used in the simulator include DIS (Distributed Interactive Simulation) technology, ship manoeuvring mathematical model, ship dynamic display based on ECDIS, Radar image, 3D scene generation using OpenGL and OpenGVS and network technology etc. The paper also introduces the application of this system in wharf design, pilot plan etc.
