BAE Systems together with James Fisher and Sons, Fugro GEOS, OSISoft UK and University of Southampton is developing software that monitors the equipment, fuel and energy performance of a ship providing real time information.
Building on the company’s expertise in supporting Royal Navy vessels, the technology known as SEA-CORES (Ship Energy Assessment-Condition Optimisation & Routing Enhancement System) was designed to analyses big data. The collaborative project is sponsored by Innovate UK.
The SEA-CORES has been developed in response to the increasing complexities of modern warships and the amount of data their systems produce. The technology analyses the vibration and trim performance of the vessel, its hull and superstructure state together with environmental conditions such as weather and associated ship performance characteristics, including energy consumption.
