Decision Support System for the Safety of the Fishing Vessels Subjected to Waves (SADEP)

Duration: 01.07.2007-30.06.2010 (32 months)

Coordination: Instituto Superior Técnico

Funding Entity: Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology

The main objective of this project is to develop a decision support system capable of indicating to the fishing vessel masters, in a simple manner, the most appropriate actions to be taken when the vessel is operating in conditions susceptible of jeopardizing its safety. These conditions include large beam waves, following to stern quartering seas, breaking waves, extreme forces due to fishing gear and water-on-deck.
