Application of simulator complexes in maritime education as services

Пламен Браняков, Юлиан Цонев, Йордан Сивков


This work presents an approach for creating an information and educational environment by building a marine virtual training complex based on a distributed infrastructure of technical and programing resources. The use of cloud technologies is proposed to create a distributed infrastructure and a web interface for user access. Introducing the approach for using a marine training complex in a cloud environment is defined as Interactive Simulator as a Service (ISaS).
