BMT Surveys REMBRANDTBMT ARGOSS and BMT Surveys, subsidiaries of BMT Group Ltd, have launched a new service as part of its marine casualty investigation portfolio.
Using REMBRANDT, the real and fast time simulation tool developed by BMT ARGOSS, the Collison Reconstruction and Simulation Team will be able to accurately reconstruct specific incidents involving collisions in order to identify the root cause and any lessons that can be learned.
The simulation uses shipboard Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) data, radar images and regional AIS information combined with high fidelity ship models, which can be re-modelled to required parameters, to produce 3D simulations. Voice, radar and position data sets are automatically synchronised, together with environmental data and navigational circumstances, to present a complete reconstruction.
The REMBRANDT simulator is regularly used by an international client base of cruise, ferry, LNG, tanker, container and bulk carrier operators and port authorities.
The new collision reconstruction service will be active from 1 October 2014.
