Autoship Systems Corporation (ASC) is a marine software developer of Autoload onboard stability and strength simulation system, customized load and stowage planning and leading edge CAD/CAM software for vessel design and construction. For over 40 years ASC has continued to provide innovative software solutions that save customers' valuable time and money on each project they undertake.


 Press Releases

  • Autoship Systems Corporation (ASC) of Vancouver, Canada is pleased to announce ASMAR Shipyards of Chile have recently upgraded all of their Autohydro Pro (hydrostatic and stability software) licences. For the past 26 years ASMAR has been a loyal customer of ASC relying on expert technical support and employee training for their growing departments.

    Autohydro is a complete hydrostatics and stability calculations program for naval architects, ship designers and marine engineers. A true 'floating simulator', Autohydro reports the reaction of the 3D model of the vessel to various conditions such as a loading configuration, a damage situation, conditions involving outside forces, wind or high speed turning momentum or some combination of these. Autohydro can also be used to obtain hull form characteristics and capacities. Vessel attitude is displayed graphically and in text on the screen. Report information, text and graphs, can be shown on the screen, printed, saved or exported to other Windows applications. ASMAR has also used Autohydro Pro to export the data generated into ASC’s real-time onboard stability program, Autoload which they have installed onboard a number of vessels.

    Autoload takes the Autohydro-built Geometry File, with tank definitions, and the data from the approved stability book to provide the vessel with a modern onboard stability program with the highest hydrostatic data output. Autoload offers cargo management modules for tankers, ro-ro, break-bulk and offshore structures.    

    ASMAR is one of the largest shipyards in Chile with a long tradition and many important clients. The company provides first-class repair and shipbuilding services for the navy and commercial markets. They have built a wide variety of vessels for national and international clients.

    “ASMAR has always tried to be on the avant-garde of technology; that is why 26 years ago the company chose Autohydro to be included among its design tools.” states Alan Neumann Alvarado, Naval Architect. “My colleagues tell me that at that moment Autohydro was a leading stability software for Naval Architecture with many features never seen before. Over time, their choice has proven to be right and we have been rewarded as Autohydro developers have invested in R & D and kept on adding new features to the software; thus, Autohydro has continuously improved over the years. Nowadays, Autohydro’s customer confidence is maintained and increased through validated results and excellent technical support. The software is versatile; it adapts to your needs and lets you produce large stability books making the repetitive task involved easier and faster than otherwise. Autohydro is a very powerful and trustworthy toolbox, which every Marine Engineer should take into consideration.”

    For 40 years ASC has developed premier design software solutions for naval architects and marine engineers on every continent. ASC also produces world-class loading instruments and load planning systems for the entire marine shipping industry. For more information email sales@autoship.com.


 Products

  • The Autoship CAD/CAM Suite
    The ASC CAD/CAM suite includes a number of integrated programs, each of which performs specific functions for vessel design and construction....

  • Autoship® hull design & surface modelling. The program uses Non-Uniform Rational B-Spline (NURBS) mathematics, the high-end CAD standard for surface modelling.

    Autohydro®  is the state-of-the-art hydrostatics and stability program. It performs intact and damaged analyses and produces customizable stability reports which are accepted by all major approval bodies.

    Autopower® for resistance & powering prediction. 12 independent resistance and propulsion methods for a variety of hull forms are offered.

    Autoplate® for plate design, expansion & management system. The program performs plate expansion calculations for both developable & non-developable plates.

    The Autostructure Group includes Autostructure® for vessel structure modelling and Production Manager™ for nesting and other production support.
  • Autoload® Onboard Stability and Stowage Planning
    Autoload® is a DNV type approved 3D based onboard stability and strength simulation system. The software covers all aspects of ship-load planning and can be fully integrated into the global information system of the shipping company....

  • Autoload is a robust, intuitive, user-friendly program that offers a simple to understand display of key hydrostatic values that are critical for safe vessel operation. Autoload frees the user to focus on critical decisions while it takes care of the calculations. The base system uses a 3D model and has easy to use controls for weights, tank loads and external forces such as wind. Additional modules can be added for more complex control of weights. The Bay Plan module handles containers, the Deck Plan deals with Ro-Ro cargo and the Crane module simulates the effect of lifting dry and/or immersed cargo with single or double cranes. For every module, the stability and strength parameters are updated as cargo is moved, providing up-to-the-minute guidance on safety and compliance. Autoload can also be connected directly to the fleet’s booking system to import cargo booking and vessel scheduling data. 3D Cargo stowage plans are easily developed in deck plan views. Autoload also connects to the on-board tank sensor system.
