The SO3-project carried out in 1976-1981 was an interdisciplinary ship-handling research project conducted at Det norske Veritas and other Norwegian facilities. Preliminary studies of the project indicated that available state-of-the-art hull monitoring systems were too expensive to acquire in addition to being too complicated for the average mate to understand. The project, therefore, was developed as a simple and reliable hull surveillance system that could accurately monitor hull motions and wave loads even in rough weather conditions. After extensive prototype development work and full-scale tests over a 5-year period were carried out, a final version of the complete hull surveillance system was completed. A description is given of the system, an inexpensive, reliable, all- weather instrumentation and recording set that is designed to require a minimum of operator training. The monitoring system is designed for use in most ships, and is said to have an average installation time of only one day.
