Abstract:

The Optimum Track Ship Routing OTSR Applications of Strike Probability OASP system of computer programs is described. This system utilizes a method of forecasting the probabilities of encountering 30 kt tropical cyclone winds in the western North Pacific Ocean based on the tropical cyclone warnings issued by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center JTWC, Guam, and the statistical analysis of historical tropical cyclone forecast errors. By applying this method of forecasting tropical cyclone wind probabilities, incorporating ship track evaluation and route generation algorithms, and including interactive and remote display capabilities, the OTSR personnel at the Fleet Numerical Oceanography Center, Monterey, California, and other users are provided with a unique approach to display, evaluation, and routing of ships threatened by tropical cyclones.
