Simulators and Labs

Cadets have access to outstanding simulators and labs in preparation for their career in the Coast Guard.

Simulation-based learning is a great way to accelerate skill development, train high-performing teams and prepare for worst-case scenarios, while minimizing risk. The Academy operates three simulators. The largest is the Shipboard Control and Navigation Training System (SCANTS), with training stations in four classrooms in Yeaton Hall. State of the art when first purchased, SCANTS will be replaced with a next generation simulation system in two years.

The Kongsberg lab consists of multiple simulation training stations located in a single classroom in Yeaton Hall.

The Redbird simulator is a flight simulator used by members of the Flight Team and Aviation Club.
