Every project has its own challenges and opportunities. In ‘Behind the Simulator’ a sneak peek is offered regarding the challenges VSTEP colleagues are facing and how they find new solutions to solve it. The first edition and kick-off is for Jelle Tuininga. Jelle is Project Manager for the Naval Training Centre (NTC) project that is built in United Arab Emirates (UAE) together with CAE.
“Around six months ago, I was asked by the management to manage the NTC project with CAE”, says Jelle Tuininga, Project Manager at VSTEP simulation. “The project is the biggest one in VSTEP’s history as maritime supplier and I was honoured to be considered. The project requires VSTEP to deliver a number of different maritime bridge simulators that will be connected to other simulation suites that will cover other aspects of the naval vessels being simulated, such as the Combat Information Centre, the Machinery Control Room and various (naval) aircrafts. The system will allow bridges to train separately (stand-alone), in groups (mimicking a ship) or are all together (acting a whole battlegroup).”
