Seaworthiness Management System


Seaworthiness Management System

Seaworthiness Management System (S.M.S.), is an advanced computerised stabilisation system. It can be used for the fast ferries as well as for motoryachts greater than 28 meters in length. The S.M.S. has been successfully installed on board the latest generation of ‘Aquastrada’ fast ferries, reducing to a minimum the vertical acceleration and pitching/rolling motions. In short, all those traditional ship movements, which affect the passengers’ comfort. The S.M.S. system guarantees a smooth navigation at high speed even in very severe weather and sea conditions.

Thanks to S.M.S., the Motion Sickness Incidence factor is well below the most severe endurance limits imposed by the ISO rules, even with 6m wave height. This complete stabilising system comprises of:

  • lifting surfaces to control and reduce the ship motions and accelerations;
  • electronic control system, for the system management;
  • motions, gyroscope and acceleration sensors;
  • control panel (monitor) installed on the console in the operating compartment;
  • hydraulic power supplies for stabilising fins and T-foils transom tabs.
