DOCUMENTATION OF DESIGN, PERFORMANCE, AND QUALIFICATION OF THE SES WAVE PROFILING SYSTEM

This report describes the design, calibration, and laboratory qualification testing of the complete motion-compensated wave profiling system (except for the altimeter) as installed on the high-speed surface effect ship, the SEA-100A. It also describes the detailed design and analysis of the strapdown inertial motion compensation system used to remove vehicle motion from the altimeter signal. The system is necessary to achieve real-time on-board wave profiling. (Author)
