Abstract:

This final report discusses the mathematical formulation, computer program implementation, and examples of the Vessel Navigation System Simulation VNSS. The VNSS simulates piloting a vessel in a restricted waterway, with channel banks, current, and obstacles. The techniques of modern optimal control theory is used to derive the control history and resultant vessel trackline, using USCG supplied code definition for vehicle dynamics. Author
