Abstract:

The replenishment at sea RAS maneuver is studied in detail for heading and speed control. Design of purposefully nonlinear control laws is accomplished for the Mariner hull using the linearized equations of motion in three degrees of freedom. Extensive use of low order modeling and optimal control theory was made. Procedure steps are presented in detail to facilitate redesign for other ship types. The results are verified using DSL simulation for a number of possible RAS scenarios. The control systems are also tested in a sea state to insure proper operation in the presence of external perturbations.
