FIDE (Fleet Interactive Display Equipment) Trainer Installation

posted Jul 31, 2012, 3:14 PM by The Nakoa Companies, Inc
This project was constructed within an area of the second floor of Bldg 39 to house a S9G Submarine Fleet Interactive Display Equipment Trainer, administrative and classroom spaces for the Navy. 

This trainer is required to train operators to effectively execute shipboard propulsion plant operations and provide realistic training opportunities to enhance operator and crew efficiencies.  NAKOA was required to adhere to strict
tolerances in locating equipment in the trainer to match that of the boat to within fractions of an inch. 

Materials for the trainer were prefabricated off-island and transported to the project site.  Installation of the trainer commenced following the installation of the suspended flooring system. 

Electrical and Mechanical Systems were upgraded to accommodate the computer simulation loads.  Monitors were not activated during construction due to the high security requirements.
