L-3 MPRI, a global provider of integrated training solutions, which includes simulation-based training systems, services and turnkey training facilities, announced the release of Version 5.0 of its Liquid Cargo Handling Simulator (LCHS) software called Safe Cargo.

The new release incorporates a new network communications infrastructure that vastly improves the speed and stability of the simulator as well as system diagnostics and recovery, the company says.

“Version 5.0 of our Safe Cargo software capitalizes on L-3’s extensive experience in liquid cargo simulation and feedback from our valued customers,” said Dennis Corrigan, senior vice president and general manager of L-3 MPRI’s Training Systems Group.

The redesigned instructor interface ensures the system is easy to use, minimizing the amount of training required before instructors can use the system effectively, the company says. The configuration wizard allows an instructor to define the required simulator configuration for the training exercise, selecting from multiple ship types, and assigning the student stations to be operated independently or in groups. Once defined, configurations can be saved and reloaded in the future with a single click of a button.

New tools are also available to simplify the monitoring of each of the student stations and the recording of student actions, with integration into the WISE Virtual Instructor and Competence Assessment tools.

The new software additionally features the option to incorporate real hardware consoles or virtual panels with the appropriate gauges and controls, allowing lifelike simulation of a fully operational Cargo Control Room environment.
