DynaSim©- An Interactive, Physics-based, PC Real-time Ship Maneuvering Simulator

DynaSim© is a user-friendly ship dynamics simulator that incorporates Systems Identification Techniques to determine ship maneuvering characteristics. Once these parameters are known the simulator can accurately reproduce  ship motion in the presence of waves, wind, currents, and obstacles or other ships. Multi-threading enables simultaneous simulation of multiple ships. The initial efforts to develop the technology were funded by Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) awards from the National Science Foundation the Department of Defense and The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Our new developments have been featured recently in Sea Technology Magazine. You can read more Here
