Methodology for Ship Maneuvering Tests using Self-Propelles Models (Ensaios de Manobrabilidade)

Duration: 01.01.2009-31.12.2011 (36 months)

Coordination: Instituto Superior Técnico

Funding Entity: Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology

It is planned to develop in this project a control and measurements system for conducting manoeuvring tests on any pre-fabricated free-running model of a surface ship. This system will include all necessary sensors, on-board computers for steering the model and acquiring data, necessary digital-analog converters and effectors, a remote-control unit, transmitters, receivers and a shore-based server.
