Sailors assigned to the Gold crew of the guided-missile submarine USS Ohio test the new submarine bridge trainer at Trident Training Facility Bangor in Washington.

A new submarine bridge trainer recently unveiled at the Trident Training Facility in Bangor, Washington, gives submarine bridge team members a learning experience through interaction with a complex visual and auditory environment.

"This is by far the most advanced trainer that I have experienced at TRITRAFAC [Trident Training Facility] Bangor," said Fire Control Technician 2nd Class Christopher Goetz, USN, assigned to USS Ohio Gold Crew, the test submarine crew for the new trainer. "With the 360-degree view, the vibrations you feel while on the bridge, the realistic wind and climate changes and the high-tech binoculars that let you see into the distance, it really prepares you for being on a real submarine.”
