Virtual Ship Model to Aid the Ship Damage Emergency Plans (VIRTUAL SHIP)

Duration: 01.11.2001 – 31.10.2003 (24 months)

Coordination: Instituto Superior Técnico

Partners: Direcção de Navios

Funding Entity: Fundação das Universidades Portuguesas

A virtual reality ship model will be developed to be used as a decision support system for damage control planning. It is aimed at being used in the damage control centre for ships, where emergency control measures are coordinated. The system will simulate the presence of an observer in every compartment of the ship where it will be able to watch the relevant equipment and systems on board. Software tools will be developed to allow the geometric and topologic representation of the virtual reality model. The user will be able to control the state of the equipment, through an adequate interface also developed during the project.
