Hull monitoring system recording the behavior of the hull girder, for the prevention of exceeding design stresses during navigation, loading and unloading.
NautCare is an advanced hull monitoring system that monitors the behavior of the hull girder during navigation and loading & unloading. Its main purpose is to prevent design stresses being exceeded.
NautCare has been designed to meet all existing requirements from the Approval Classes. The system is based on an open architecture in order to be easily expandable in case of necessity or to comply with new regulations. This open architecture is mainly expressed by an Ethernet network looping the deck and connecting each sensor with the processing units.
The major elements of NautCare are:
the data acquisition unit
the data processing and recording unit
the network modules
the sensor units
