AbstractThis report describes the processes involved in comparing two inertial motion sensors, the MotionPak II and ADIS, used in model testing in the Offshore Engineering Basin (OEB) at the Institute for Ocean Technology (IOT). Seakeeping trials carried out in 2004 on the Roberts Sisters II fishing vessel were duplicated at model scale in the summer of 2009. Analysis was performed on the model data using a series of Generalized Experiment Control and Data Acquisition Package (GEDAP) command procedures to generate plots comparing the motions tracked by each device. Included in this report is a discussion of the results as well as recommendations regarding the feasibility of replacing the MotionPak II with the ADIS.
