In support of procurement of new maritime helicopters, DRDC Atlantic was tasked to simulate motions ofthe HALIFAX class in seaways. The data produced will aid in the determination of helicopter securing loads,which are highly dependent upon the motions of the ship. The present work reports a systematic series ofsimulations modelling a HALIFAX class frigate with nominally steady speed and heading course-keeping ina variety of seaway conditions. This memorandum provides the data in a tabulated format for quick reference.A companion report DRDC TM 2004-043 describes the simulation conditions and key results.
