Rapid Radar Plotting Training Simulator
The USCG requires that a licensed mariner’s Radar Observer certification be renewed every five years. Since the advent of ARPA (Automated Radar Plotting Aid), which is required on many ships anyways, it’s not unusual that the last time most of us have done a plot was for our last certification. The purpose of this trainer is to provide an an easy to learn, low cost tool to help you “brush up” and improve your proficiency at Rapid Radar Plotting.
I need a beta tester or two who will run the simulator through its paces and let me know what issues they may run into. You’ll need to know how to do a manual plot, have the proper tools to do a plot, as well as a PC or Mac computer connected to the internet. In exchange you’ll get free access to the simulator for a month.
If you’re interested, drop me a private message and I’ll respond with instructions on how to get started.
