The Maritime Simulation and Resource Centre was featured on the Radio-Canada program Découverte.
In December 2005, the Corporation of the Lower St. Lawrence Pilots acquired a highly sophisticated multidisciplinary navigation simulator. Purchased from the Norwegian company at a cost of $1.35 million, this acquisition clearly demonstrates the importance the Lower St. Lawrence pilots attach to the maintenance and improvement of their maritime navigation skills.

The simulator reproduces the St. Lawrence River with its shores, its sea floors and its currents – all that with 330 degree vision. Pilot can rely on their senses just as they would on a real ship.
Découverte came to see for itself this technology that simulates navigation with such amazing fidelity.
