U.K.-based software house Marine Software Ltd has successfully delivered its DNV type approved Marine Planned Maintenance system on QinetiQ’s Trimaran demonstrator vessel R.V. Triton . This innovative test vessel comes after ten years of research and is the largest motor powered trimaran demonstrator ever built, also being the worlds first of class ship based on this new
concept triple-hull design.
QinetiQ, formerly known as the Defense Evaluation and Research Agency ( DERA ), took delivery of the R.V. Triton in August 2000 after

maintained. Maintenance history will also be monitored ashore by the Trimaran project
team, using our Office Planned Maintenance for Windows.
