Mobile Solutions

5DT’s SimBaseā„¢ Systems can be mounted inside a classroom (building) or can be mobilized.

The 5DT Mobile Solutions are based on High-cube ISO shipping containers. These containers are 300 mm (1′) higher than standard ISO containers.

5DT also offers a dual-size fold-out container that doubles the available floor space when deployed. The increased height and floor space lead to user comfort that sharply contrasts with the cramped mobile solutions offered by conventional simulator suppliers.

The containers may be transported with dedicated container trucks or with 5DT’s container trailer solution. When using the trailer, the container can be left on the trailer permanently or it can be removed from the trailer at the target site. The trailer can then be used elsewhere.

The containers may also be attached (by means of container locks) onto a truck. This solution provides for very rapid deployment and deployment over difficult road conditions.

Specific Features
Modular, standardised and turn-key solution
High-Cube ISO containers are used (some applications require that machine operators stand upright on motion base)
Eco-friendly (recycling of shipping containers and use of low-energy lights)
Rugged and secure
Fully insulated
Air conditioned (cooling and heating)
Non-slip flooring
Anti lock-in for occupants
Emergency lighting
Fire extinguisher
Whiteboard for instructor
Electrical distribution board

Single Container

The single container is 5DT’s mobile workhorse. 5DT applied ergonomic design principles to ensure that there is as much free floor space inside the container as possible. The single container is ideal for housing the 5DT Cube-Type SimBaseā„¢ System.

Specific Features
Motorized roll-down rear screen
Space for other class members

Dual-size Fold-out Container

A single container folds out to form a dual container space.

Specific Features
Almost double the floor space of a single container
Deployed by two persons in less than 1 hour
May be shipped via a container ship, railcar or road truck

Classroom Container

The objective of the classroom container is to provide a mobile computer-based training (CBT) classroom. A classroom consisting of one instructor desk and six operator desks are mounted in a single or dual-size container.

Specific Features
Privacy dividers or cubicle dividers between trainees
Large LCD classroom screen
Storage cabinet for manuals
Classroom whiteboard
All computers are networked


The 5DT trailer solution is essentially a trailer to which a container (either single or dual-size fold-out) is attached with container locks. The trailer may be deployed with the container or the container may be off-loaded so that the trailer may be used elsewhere.

Specific Features
Trailer weight, including container and simulator: 4,500 kg (9,900 lbs)
May be towed by most commercial tow vehicles
Tow ring coupling
Deployable in less than one hour
Optional lift gate
