Christie Upgrades Marine Simulator

Publish date:

Christie has installed a state-of-the-art display system to replace the existing CRT technology for the Full Mission Bridge (FMB) simulator at the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University of Newfoundland. The upgrade includes 10 Christie Matrix 3000 simulation projectors, which feature SXGA+ DLP display technology and Christie's ChristieTWIST image warping and edge-blending module.

Additionally, Christie is integrating a comprehensive control system, designed around ChristieNET network-based functionality, as part of a system optimization component. The control system will be customized to configure the display depending on specific application requirements. The upgrade also includes design of a custom projector support structure, engineered to allow for movement of the ship bridge mockup. The FMB is the only one in North America in which the ship bridge is mounted on a motion platform. Christie is performing all integration work related to the display.

The Marine Institute is a post-secondary institute specializing in career programs related to the fisheries and marine industry. Its Centre for Marine Simulation (CMS) comprises of seven marine simulation facilities that cover an entire range of training, educational, and research and development capabilities. The FMB is part of a modeling and simulation system used for training in a variety of scenarios that replicate harsh environments at various times of days, as well as extreme winter and arctic environments. The 24-foot tall screen provides a 360 degree horizontal field of view on a compound curved surface.
