Abstract:

AN EFFORT TO ESTABLISH A METHODOLOGY FOR ASSESSING THE EFFECT ON SHIPBOARD ROBOTIC SYSTEMS OF SEAWAY INDUCED SHIP MOTIONS, VELOCITIES AND ACCELERATIONS IS DESCRIBED. THIS METHODOLOGY IS INTENDED TO PROVIDE: 1.) METHODS FOR ASSESSING THE IMPACT AND EFFECTS ON SHIPBOARD ROBOTIC SYSTEM PERFORMANCE, RELIABILITY, SAFETY AND SERVICE LIFE OF SHIP MOTIONS AND; 2.) A BASIS FOR DEVELOPING DURING PHASE II A MORE COMPREHENSIVE METHOD FOR ASSESSING SUCH EFFECTS. THESE METHODS WILL ALSO PROVIDE GUIDANCE FOR MODIFICATION OF EXISTING ROBOTIC SYSTEMS TO PERMIT THEIR USE ON NAVAL SHIPS AND FOR THE DESIGN OF FUTURE SHIPBOARD ROBOTIC SYSTEMS. THE EFFORT IS DIVIDED INTO THREE TASKS: 1.) DEVELOPMENT OF METHODS FOR ASSESSING MOTIONS EFFECTS FOR TYPICAL ROBITIC SYSTEMS; 2.) DEVELOPMENT OF A SUITABLE METHOD FOR PREDICTING RELEVANT SHIP MOTIONS AND COMBINATIONS OF MOTIONS AND; 3.) APPLICATION OF THESE METHODS USING AN EXAMPLE APPLICATION OF CURRENT INTEREST TO NAVSEA.
