MARINET launches the new expert group for the Human Resource Development

New MARINET expert group is established during the MARINET Meeting and regional conference in Tomsk which were held as a part of Young Scientists Forum U-NOVUS (May 18). New expert group will work on educational projects selection and support, talents attraction and development in the maritime industry.

“There is a clear connection between the most promising segments of the marine industry represented by MARINET and the development of educational technologies,” said MARINET Leader, Sergei Generalov. – On the one hand, new directions will require personnel with significantly different, new skills and knowledge. On the other hand, the perspective directions of MARINET can serve as targets for the training centers and universities””

Simulator complex – TRAWL

The simulator complex has been designed to solve a wide range of tasks related to numerical simulations, design and management of the trawl complex, maintenance of a document database, design and mathematical models of trawl complex elements, training journals and programmes, topology of fishing grounds (maps of fishing areas), commercial schedule (command placement) and access to the database.

Electronic sextant

The essence and content of the project, the available groundwork. The analysis of the technical means installed on the vessels providing the possibility of obtaining the observable coordinates of the ship’s position allows us to conclude that the only backup (independent of the presence of a radio signal and power supply) is the astronomical way of determining the observable coordinates of the ship’s position when navigating on the high seas.

The improvement of the procedure of obtaining the astronomical observable position of the vessel is associated with the improvement of the instrument intended for measuring the observable navigation parameter-the height of the luminary-the navigation sextant. Any action to improve the design of sextant stopped in the 70-80s of the last century, and this device does not meet the state of the art and scientific achievements. (more…)
