AbstractThe National Research Council of Canada’s Institute for Ocean Technology is currently expanding its Dynamic Positioning (D.P.) capabilities. Due to recent interest in oil and gas exploration in the Arctic, IOT looks to extend its D.P. capabilities to include the ability to perform D.P. in Ice. Older software used in past applications required upgrading in preparation of an upcoming D.P. in Ice demonstration. Effort was undertaken to upgrade this software for a new environment, as well as to improve its future development. With software development now well underway and various key components of the software environment now developed, the main D.P. control software has been passed to IOT’s Software Engineering group for completion.
