Based in Washington, D.C., Military Sealift Command
(MSC) has chosen Autoship Systems
' onboard stability program Autoload for their vessels.
Autoload allows vessel operators to perform proper trim stability and strength calculations for any load calculations for any load condition before departing port and at anytime while at sea. The main window displays the profile, plan and body plan views of the ship in the loaded condition, as well as calculated hydrostatic values and any alarms that may occur. Based on Autoship's Autohydro hydrostatic engine, Autoload calculates stability and strength as fuel and consumables are used, helps optimize ballast, and evaluates strength and stability in a damaged or grounded condition.
