Quick Facts

Summary

The Research & Technology Support group is part of the Engineering Department and is made up of various specialists. The group conducts research and supports developments regarding new types of ship, as well as supporting the Products & Proposals Department in order to determine the degree of automation together with the client and subcontractors. The degree of automation in a ship is driven by the desire to reduce crew size on the one hand, and on the other hand the technological possibilities that are available. This requires a good understanding of naval operations and the manning required. This can vary widely from navy to navy.

Ship Automation is playing an increasingly important role in the operational use of our (navy) vessels. Therefore, we decided to further develop and professionalize our design and research capacity in this field. This is the primary objective in this new role.
