Marine Cybernetics

Marine Cybernetics’ primary business is independent testing of advanced control systems to secure safe and reliable operation of ships and offshore installations. This results in significant savings for yards, ship owners, contractors and oil companies.

Offers consultancy services covering design reviews and simulation studies of advanced control systems.

Established in 2002.

Main Office Located in Trondheim, Norway.

56 employees in Trondheim and growing.

Foreign offices established in Houston and Rio de Janeiro.

Delivered more than 70 projects

PETROMAKS: kick-starting the project

Supports Norwegian R&D projects through funding

FundedMarineCyberneticsresearchonHIL testing of Offshore Drilling Systems

The primary objective

Introduce independent HIL testing as a new industry standard for independent testing of software in offshore drilling systems

Three Brazilian interns was a part of the project

Obtained project results:

Drilling-HIL, as developed in this R&D project, is today a commercial service offered by Marine Cybernetics

Third Party Verification in NASAHIL testing

  • Example: NASA Independent Verification & Validation (IV&V) Facility

  • The NASA IV&V Program was founded after the Challenger accident.

  • According to NASA, Independent Verification & Validation requires

    • Technical independence

    • Managerial independence

    • Financial independence

  • Software IV&V is performed in parallel with the software design

  • The NASA IV&V Program mitigates risks early in software design

The Current Situation

Brazil

Enormous investments in the oil and gas sector

Not enough capacity to perform all operations

Currently unable to fill the need for educated labour

Local content has a high political priority

Norway

Oilrelated SMB industry goes international

120+ norwegian companies in Brazil

Not enough norwegians with Brazil specific knowledge

Has defined Brazil as a target market


Marine cybernetics

What we did

Established internship contract in cooperation with Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC)

Three Brazilian interns from UFSC

Wrote their bachelor thesis on topics relevant to marine cybernetics while working in the company

The interns are operational and ready to perform HIL testing and simulator development all over the world

Two started working for Marine Cybernetics

One continued her master studies at NTNU while working for Marine Cybernetics

Three new interns from UFRJ, USP and UFSC are in the pipeline
