The paper reviews the environmental operational problems encountered in heavy weather, the applicable seakeeping theory and developing technology. On board response assessment and the corresponding prediction are discussed as they may be integrated into a ship response control system. Work underway on the development of satisfactory hardware for bringing this technology to bear is discussed. The requirements for successful application are proposed including special man/machine interaction, problem solutions and training requirements. Areas of current investigation are identified and system effectiveness is discussed.
