Ice and Harsh Environment Operations

Ice and Harsh Environment Operations

The Centre for Marine Simulation's focus of research is modeling and simulating harsh environments. The objective of this research is to improve the safety and efficiency of offshore operations in harsh maritime environments through the development of innovative modeling and simulation capabilities focused on reducing human error.

It addresses industry demand for more accurate, innovative and reliable solutions to human factor challenges within the design and delivery of training programs for harsh environments (with a specific focus on ice management).

The following is an example of a research project:

Ice Maneuvring for the Full Mission Bridge Simulator

Developed first-year level ice models to incorporate into CMS's Bridge simulator, in collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada.
