Continuous measurement of waves, ship motions (roll and pitch), and so on has been carried out for about five years by onboard monitoring system installed ocean-going vessel. Measured wave data, including wave height, wave period and wave direction, are thoroughly evaluated with corresponding onboard weather observation data by comparing directly in terms of time series and statistical values.

Then, short term prediction of ship motions (roll and pitch) based on the measured wave data are compared with onboard motion data measured by vertical gyro.

From the results described, good accuracy and effectiveness of wave measurements by an onboard radar wave meter for safe navigation are demonstrated.
