ASC: Creating Innovative Software Solutions since 1980

For over 35 years, Autoship Systems Corporation (ASC) has been producing first class software design solutions for naval architects and marine engineers around the world. ASC has also been providing world-class load planning systems and loading instruments to the marine shipping industry.


 Press Releases

  • Autoship Systems Corporation (ASC) of Vancouver, Canada is pleased to announce their onboard stability software, Autoload is celebrating 25 years of leading the marine loading computer market. Installed on thousands of ships, rigs and platforms world-wide, Autoload is on-board virtually every type of vessel.

    From the start, ASC adopted a simple yet sophisticated philosophy for developing Autoload: the program must be simple to use yet apply the most accurate mathematical analyses to all calculations. Thus, one brief look at the Autoload screen provides the user with a quick and accurate picture of the vessel's current stability status, loads and important margins. The user can then focus on critical decisions while leaving the mathematical complexity to the computer. The development of the highly advanced 3D based user interface has benefited from ASC's 35 year history of developing CAD/CAM software.

    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 multiple 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.

    Autoload-SPS is a stowage planning program integrated with a hull form based hydrostatic engine and features a seamless link to the company's centralized cargo-booking database. The software facilitates the expedient planning and loading of each vessel by optimizing the utilization of the ship's cargo capacity, improving coordination between regional offices and terminals which helps ensure smooth loading/unloading in ports and the safety of the vessel with quick and precise hydrostatic evaluations.

    ASC is a marine software developer based in Vancouver, Canada. For over 35 years, the company has been producing innovative software design solutions for naval architects and marine engineers around the world. ASC has also been providing world-class load planning systems and loading instruments to the marine shipping industry. For more information email sales@autoship.com.

  • 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.

  • Autohydro® - Hydrostatics and Stability Software
    Autohydro is the state-of-the-art hydrostatics and stability program. It performs intact and damaged analyses and produces customizable stability reports....

  • 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 model 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, edited, printed, saved or exported to other Windows applications.

  • 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.
