Research Institution

Triton Systems, Inc. and partners propose to develop a 3D motion-controlled technology to eliminate or greatly reduce the need for tag line handlers when transferring boats, craft, and other cargo loads to, from, and on vessels. Current crane lifting operations are inherently hazardous and require tag line handlers to orientate suspended loads from vessel mounted cranes. Triton Systems’ solution will be a modular and scalable design that is able to work with current vessel machinery in up to sea state 3 conditions. Triton intends to simplify and minimize the burdens of conducting a lifting operation by introducing a new system that works with existing infrastructure and lifting methods while mitigating personnel risks and requirements.
