Captain Bradley Moore joined the Centre for Marine Training and Research at Georgian College seven years ago. The majority of his work is focused on simulation research and project coordination. He also teaches regularly.
He recently contributed to analysis and development of the virtual Equinox Class of vessel, in conjunction with the Transas hydrodynamics team from St. Petersburg, Russia.
His investigation of simulated new and multi-year ice dynamics, as related to vessel interaction and operational procedures, led him to present on Simulated Response Preparedness in Harsh Environments at the Maritime Arctic Safety and Security conference in 2014.
In 2012, Captain Moore conducted a transportation logistics study through simulation for the Port of Goderich. This study assisted in determining the re-design and future uses of the port after the city’s natural disaster.
In 2011, Captain Moore began the development of the Contiguous Hydrodynamic Simulation Model Of Great Lakes Basin and Connecting Waters. This application of technology integrated over 500,000 data points and is the only one of its kind in Canada.
While attending University of Toronto for Engineering Science, Brad founded and became the CEO of ComSoft Systems. Over 10 years, he led extensive research and development projects in cloud computing, with a focus on transportation logistics and business integration.
Brad began his sailing career in 1982 on the Great Lakes. In 1984, he sailed out of Canadian waters on to the North Atlantic, Mediterranean and Indian oceans.
A lifelong learner, he holds multiple certificates: Simulation Instructor and Development, Teaching and Training Adults, Master 500t, Watch-Keeping Mate, as well as all MEDs, SENs, GMDSS-ROC, ECDIS, Company Security Officer and Celestial Navigation certificates. Brad also earned his private and commercial pilot’s licenses.
