Study on the ocean environment of a navigation area is essential for ship design. On the other hand, the investigation of current, wave and wind of the ocean is not sufficient for the purpose and development of maritime intelligence technology is needed.
In our laboratory, ocean measurement technology using underwater vehicle is developed. The obtained data is used as basic information for ship design and it also applied for sea bottom resources exploration and ocean observation. Seakeeping problems of ocean going vessels which include small high-speed boat and special service vessels are studied based on the maritime intelligence.
