Turkish Meteksan Defense Company added the Republic of Korea among the users of Damage Control Sımulator (DCSIM). Inno Simulation – Meteksan Defense Partnership won the Republic of Korea Navy ‘s bid for Damage Control Simulator requirement. Meteksan announced that the contract for the project was signed in February.
“The production and subsystems of the Damage Control Simulator will be made in the Republic of Korea with local facilities under the support of Meteksan Defense” Meteksan said.
Meteksan developed and delivered the Damage Control Simulator for the Turkish Naval Forces first. Meteksan also signed a contract with the Oman Navy and completed the delivery of the same system. With the latest agreement, the third user of the DCSIM became Republic of Korea Navy.
The main goal of damage control is to keep the ship floating, moving and fulfilling her mission. To achieve these goals, damage must be quickly confined and repaired. Naval Damage Control capability is a critical effect for preserving the integrity, stability and maneuverability of vessels. The key to enable these capacities is a realistic training environment for the ship’s crew to develop and conduct damage control exercises. Consistent and realistic training produces an optimal level of readiness that prepares members of repair party teams to react more efficiently to actual casualties.
