Currently Active: 

The use of navigational satellite systems ship structural monitoring.

Project Overview

Red Funnel ferry used for equipment tests
The Red Funnel Ferry

New satellite navigation systems such as the European Galileo navigational system provide the opportunity for new applications. The feasibility of monitoring the structural deformation of large ships such as supertankers has been demonstrated using simulation and experimental evidence obtained from the red funnel ferry.
