Abstract:

The main purpose of this report is to document in detail the procedure for insuring that the Naval Biodynamics Laboratorys Ship Motion Simulator SMS motion outputs match real world, at-sea ship motion data acquired during sea trails or via validated simulation models. Fidelity of motion is essential to the credibility of results of research conducted utilizing the Ship Motion Simulator. A second purpose is to present a historical overview of SMS development, and to cite significant research results derived from its use. Finally, a brief description of the upgrades undergone by the SMS when moved to the Naval Biodynamics Laboratory is included. Keywords Motion simulator Motion sickness PerformanceHuman Ship motion.
