SEAKEEPING IN SHIP OPERATIONS
Four types of seakeeping intelligence data systems, Optimum Track Ship Routing (OTSR), Tactical Operation Ship Routing (TOSR), Ship Survivability in Extreme Weather (SSEW) and Heavy Weather Operator Guidance (HWOG), can be useful to the operator. This paper focuses on Heavy Weather Operator Guidance whereby quantitative information is provided to the operator on the behavior of his ship under a set of arbitrary sea conditions as well as guidance on avoiding severe ship motions. Three methods for transfer of seakeeping intelligence data are described: cataloged onboard guidance; interactive shore/ship guidance; sensor/onboard guidance. The development of an HWOG Catalog for a typical frigate class is presented and the techniques for implementing the other two methods are outlined.
