The article describes a system developed to monitor the stability of vessels under various loads and conditions. The system is designed to give a vessel's crew continuous and timely information about their vessel's initial metacentric height and can be used for the monitoring and management of the vessel during loading and unloading of cargo or during sailing, ensuring the safety and economic employment of the vessels. The sensor unit must be bulkhead mounted at or near the rolling centre of the ship. The data from the sensor is transferred using a data cable to the system computer. The results of the data acquisition, analyses and calculation are displayed on the computer monitor.
