Abstract:

The report covers selection of an optimal concept for handling the Mark I Deep Dive Systems Personnel Transfer Capsule, in a Sea State 3, from ATS, ASR, and ARS Class ships. Included are descriptions of some of the many possible handling system concepts generated by idea conferences and a literature search. The more feasible concepts are analyzed and compared using a set of eleven comparison factors. The optimal system, an articulated telescoping crane, is chosen according to its overall performance on the comparison factors.
