Until now, MARIN usually performed monitoring using accurate sensors and a fully synchronised system. However, not all monitoring questions require the same accuracy. For instance, to quantify the performance of a numerical tool, a traditional, highly accurate system is required. On the other hand, when a global idea of the consumed fatigue budget is of concern, a more cost-effective measurement system with lower instantaneous accuracy could provide sufficient information. Currently, MARIN is developing a broader range of monitoring systems to more specifically serve the needs of our clients.
