NAUTIS OSV Trainer
NAUTIS is a new generation of affordable certified advanced maritime training solutions for the military & civilian maritime industry. The NAUTIS range of advanced maritime training simulators offers an affordable and effective alternative for training maritime professionals, officers and crews in compliance with the latest STCW standards. With a full range of simulators, from desktop trainer to full mission bridge simulator, VSTEP has a cost-effective training solution fulfilling the training requirements of nautical colleges, naval academies, maritime training centres and individual ship owners.
The NAUTIS OSV trainer allows mariners to experience and train the handling of OSVs with different types of propulsion systems during off shore operations. The simulated OSVs are available with a conventional propulsion system or with 360-degree azimuth thrusters. Trainees can use the built-in DP system and control the vessel with a joystick to interface with third party DP systems from Marine Technologies, L-3, Navis, Converteam and others.
VSTEP offers integrated solutions combining the NAUTIS OSV Trainer software with different hardware configurations, to suit your budget and training requirements.
- Offshore operations
- Tug and Towboat operations
- High speed vessel operations
- Oil rig and platform moves
The NAUTIS OSV Trainer includes an extensive library of off vessels, platforms, and environments. Customized vessels/platforms and ports/locations can be integrated according to client requirements.
The OSV Trainer includes an easy to use set of instructor tools to prepare, save and control maneuvering exercises, multi-party rig move operations and fine tune ship maneuvering parameters Using the NAUTIS OSV Trainer Instructor Station, during a session an instructor can introduce a more severe sea state, increase the wind or set the current on the fly, and introduce faults and failures of the propulsion system and the navigation equipment. The Instructor Station has an extensive editor function for adjusting the propulsion system of any vessel, to make it suit the maneuvering characteristics of a desired vessel.
We offer a full range of simulators from desktop systems to full mission bridge simulators. Innovative mobile training solutions include an ultra portable trainer using head mounted display, or portable set-ups using multiple outside view screens.

RescueSim - Virtual offshore and port incident training for emergency responders
Already a success in the European and Asian markets, VSTEP has developed a US version of RescueSim which incorporates geography, equipment, and personnel.
RescueSim is training software that prepares public safety and security professionals for real-life incidents in a safe virtual environment. While hands on training remains essential, RescueSim allows first responders and emergency organizations to experience any incident as they would in real-life: Assess the situation, determine the best response strategy, implement it, then observe results and modify actions as the situation evolves. RescueSim enhances and makes hands on training more effective.
Specific Training Modules
RescueSim has different modules catering to the specific needs of an industry. Each module includes a wide range of emergency response units and many different incident types, thereby providing training opportunities for a wide range of organizations. RescueSim currently includes 130 virtual incident locations in which safety and security professionals can build their rescue skills and practice alternative response strategies in a safe, low-cost environment. An instructor or facilitator can develop exercises and scenarios to meet training objections.
Two of the modules of particular interest to the Workboat and Off-shore Maritime Industries include:
- PORT INCIDENT MANAGEMENT
This module focuses on incidents involving vessels, port facilities, and ports. It includes different port types and objects, allowing for complex incidents like explosions, on-board & shore fires, on-water spillage and environmental incidents situated near and on the waterways, and terrorist and CBRNE incidents. Exercises can involve the crews, port facility personnel, port authorities, law enforcement, fire departments, and rescue and assistance personnel. This module can also be used to script simulated exercises to support CFR 33 requirements.
- OFFSHORE INCIDENT MANAGEMENT
Offshore Incident Management focuses on incidents taking place on different types of vessels, as well as onboard of oil rig platforms. The module contains many offshore specific objects to create and train incidents ranging from small scale onsite or on-vessel accidents to large scale disasters, including oil rig fires.
A Complete Incident Training Solution
RescueSim can be used as an in-house training tool or as part of a specific training course offered by our certified training partners. Certified training partners provide training according to the latest guidelines and regulations for your organization. Organizations with their own training infrastructure can use RescueSim as an in-house training tool for their personnel. RescueSim includes all required training software, hardware, software updates, train-the-trainer course and full customer support.
RescueSim is currently used for one-on-one training, classroom training and multi-user team training. Both single and multi-agency training is possible.
