Anti-Piracy training solution

Simulated pirate vessel of the Anti-Piracy package

During an exercise, trainees learn how to detect a hostile pirate vessel using ECDIS, radar plotting, AIS information, visual sightings (by fuel barrels on deck, weapons, type and number of crewmembers etc.) and by comparison of target data with known behavioural patterns of pirate vessels. The “Evasion for Merchant Ships Techniques” include avoidance of contacts with potentially hostile vessels or keeping out of range of known hostile vessel's weapons using course and speed changes.  Finally, preparations, best angle of approach and practicing of best course and speed decisions are trained for closing and engaging hostile vessels for anti-piracy forces.Ralf Lehnert, Transas Marine Simulation Business Unit director says: „Anti-Piracy training is all about early reconnaissance and recognition and about initiating the countermeasures and best management practice at earliest. That's why we put a lot of efforts in making those typical piracy attack vessels visually very close to reality and also provide realistic manoeuvring characteristics. The fact that these exercise objects can change their threat status from simple fishermen to aggressive attacking pirates during a scenario will help the training organisation to provide situational awareness training, from the early radar observation to the final visual identification. Our navigational simulator can also provide naval ships and helicopters as escort objects for convoy sailing and communication procedure training."

 

Transas has developed an anti-piracy training to support maritime schools in performing relevant simulation courses. One of the main goals is to help students understand what effect their avoidance manoeuvres would have on hostile vessels.
