조난 선박의 위치추정을 위한 GUI 프로그램 개발
Development of a GUI Program for the Position Prediction of Distressed Vessel
Sin-Young Kang
To provide an easy operation of drift prediction model in SAR(search and rescue) mission a GUI program running on Windows environment has developed. Users can make choice of input data on the screen by just clicking the mouse and the prediction results of datum points and trajectories of vessels are drawn on the electric chart. The program contains both Leeway Equation model and Mathematical model. The FORTRAN language was used in programming and Lehay Winteracter 4.0 software was utilized for graphic presentation. The result of May, 2001 Busan field experiment was plotted with that of model prediction for demonstration purpose.
