BAE Systems Naval Ships is the leading provider of surface ships and through-life support for the U.K. Ministry of Defence, employing over 7000 people in the U.K. Current projects include Type 26 Frigate, Type 45 destroyer, and the Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers. Naval Ships have used both MATLAB® and Simulink® to support various aspects of the naval design and integration process. Examples include the development of a marine engineering trainer to support Type 45, a shock mounting design assessment tool to support the design installation of naval equipment, and a dynamic modelling and simulation framework, an addition to the Combat System Engineering Data Framework, that allows a Combat System Integrated Product Team to assess the dynamic performance of an evolving ship design at varying levels of system composition and complexity.
This presentation provides a brief overview of the modelling and simulation applications within Naval Ships, using MATLAB and Simulink products. Examples illustrate how MathWorks technology has been applied and where the technology is leading.
