imitate connection of the microtelephone handset.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION

21

2.2. FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION

2.2.1 USE OF EXTERNAL LOUDSPEAKERS AND SIMULATION

OF MICROTELEPHONE HANDSET

The simulator provides for the connection of a simulated microtelephone handset attached to the required communication device.

In the left bottom part of the screen there is a button labelled by default as

MF/HF. The label on the button changes to indicate which communication device the simulated microtelephone handset is currently connected to. If the button is labelled MF/HF, this means that the handset is connected to MF/HF radio station. Place the cursor on the button and right-click on the “mouse”. The

MF/HF button is then highlighted in yellow. This means that the handset is lifted from the holder and the push-to-talk switch is activated. You can start transmission in MF/HF band using whichever MF/HF station frequency the radio is tuned to. After you press MF/HF button a second time, the button returns to the non-activated grey colour. This indicates that the handset has been returned to the holder.

When another station allowing radiotelephone communication to be maintained is called on the screen, e.g., INMARSAT-B, the handset will automatically be switched to this station.

Additionally the user can switch the handset manually to any other communication device which is not currently displayed on the screen.

Active loudspeakers connected to the sound card are used for listening to the required frequencies (channels).

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION

22

2.2.2 PRINTING OUT

The simulator enables information received and transmitted by all the units which have an output onto the printer, to be printed out for records and review by the trainee.

The external printer should be connected to LPT1 port.

A useful aspect of this system is, if you do not have a facility for an external printer, this function is optional, as the simulator program imitates a printer which can be displayed on the screen

.

2.2.3 ALARMS

Some units included in the simulator generate an audible alarm upon the receipt of important messages or when the vessel is made to switch to a certain status, in order to draw the operator’s attention to the change or problem.

The simulator program automatically switches on a visual alarm to warn the operator of any such circumstance.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION

23

2.2.4 CHART SYSTEM

GENERAL INFORMATION

During work with the simulator, the trainee can use the electronic chart system included in the system funcitons. This option provides the following capabilities:

to view any chart fragment on a suitable scale;

to determine coordinates of any object plotted on the chart;

to determine the distance and bearing between any two points on the chart;

obtain and change ownship coordinates, course and speed;

to plot other trainees’ ships on the chart, setting their coordinates, names, types and icon colours;

to obtain information on any of the previously plotted ships;

to use the database of coast radio stations, NAVTEX system stations and

INMARSAT coast earth stations.

to view GMDSS Sea Areas and Search and Rescue Regions.

availability to make a rough estimate of the radio waves propagation in the selected frequency band.

CHART FEATURES

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION

24

The electronic chart system allows the following objects to be displayed on the chart:

outlines of the electronic nautical charts;

ships;

coast VHF/MF/HF radio stations;

NAVTEX stations;

INMARSAT coast earth stations;

GMDSS Sea Areas and SRRs.

The program allows the user to obtain information on ships and stations.

The following standard chart features are provided: previewing, zooming, centering, information, etc.

An electronic chart allows the geographic coordinates of any chart point (object) to be determined, and the distance and bearing between two objects to be measured.

The trainee can add to the chart the known parameters of any other ships in the vicinity, edit parameters of those ships plotted on the chart, change their coordinates and delete these ships.

2.2.5 USE OF SELF-EDUCATION PROGRAM (TUTOR)

SELF-EDUCATION PROGRAM MENU

The Tutor program enables the trainee to gain knowledge of the instruments included in the simulator at his/her own place. Trainees can check their knowledge in the test or examination mode.

The following self-education modes are provided:

Demonstration mode (Demo).

Check-of-knowledge mode (Test).

Examination mode (Exam).

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION

25

It is advisable to use the demonstration mode for the process of training in the handling of instruments. This program will show, when operated in automatic mode, the procedure for completion of the selected exercise. The program’s operation is complemented with clarifications and comments displayed on the screen. There are two demo modes whilst using the self-education program:

AUTO: The program automatically completes the entire exercise passing to each following step after a pre-defined time interval.

STEP BY STEP: The program automatically completes the exercise, however, in order to go on to the next exercise step, the user must click the left mouse button or any key on the keyboard. The Step by Step mode has been specifically designed to aid individual training, as it allows the user to learn at their optimum work rate. Each trainee is therefore given the opportunity to read comments on each step in their own time and ensure that each step serves as a useful learning example.

It is advisable to use the check-of-knowledge function after working in demonstration mode, as this enables the trainee to accurately review progress made and highlight any areas that may need further exercise practise.

The final stage in the self-education mode is an examination in the trainee’s operation of instruments included in the simulator.

The program keeps a log of exercises completed in both the checks of knowledge and examination modes. After pressing the Examination button, an

Exercises window displays statistics for each of the exercises. These statistics include the following information distributed among the columns:

number of attempts to complete the given exercise in test mode

number of successful attempts in test mode

number of errors in the last attempt in test mode

number of attempts to complete the given exercise in examination mode

examination result.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION

26

Log of exercises completed in the check of knowledge and examination modes can be printed out on the external printer by pressing Print button.

2.2.6 HELP SYSTEM
