The article describes in detail the structure and functioning of a computer designed for use on board ship for the specific task of figuring the mean current value of the ships roll involving a change in center of gravity. Factors of amplitude and period of roll are collected and stored in the computer. Comparison of input data with normal data for the same ship is linked to an alarm system when analysis indicates that stability limits are in danger of being exceeded.
