During a real-time simulation study of escort manoeuvres of a 'Ship Docking Module (SDM)', themanoeuvring characteristics of an escort tug were investigated. Planar Motion Mechanism (PMM) were performed to derive the manoeuvring mathematical model with interaction components between various components such as skegs and thrusters. To validate the derived mathematical model free-sailing manoeuvring tests were also performed.
