BAE: New software could transform ship maintenance
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. The software works in collaboration with existing BAE Systems technologies Ship Energy Assessment System (SEAS) and System Information Exploitation (SIE) technology, connecting fuel and engine optimisation to model the relationships between the different ships systems. Using genetic algorithms, it then recommends strategies to optimise the vessel’s performance.
