Additional tools:

STATISTICA – analytical software designed for operation in various research environments: any setting where a research team analyzes common data and enjoys the advantages of teamwork. The software enables: efficient teamwork, sharing of knowledge and user co-operation, easy and quick access to data from external sources, with a possibility of data processing on the server (no need to create a local copy of processed data), automatic data monitoring, automatic response, data dissemination, convenient system administration.

AIS system consists of a central station and dedicated software satisfying international requirements and regulations for Automatic Identification Systems, provided by the International Maritime Organization, International Electrotechnical Commission, or in the SOLAS Convention. AIS monitors movements of vessels in a selected area and archives the received data for their further analysis. 

SolidWorks permits modelling of technical systems using advanced tools for an analysis of system life cycle; the tools allow to investigate the impact of a product on the natural environment  during its manufacturing, operation and recycling. The environmental impact is assessed via such factors as ‘carbon footprint’ and ‘total energy use’.

NASTRAN system uses the finite elements method to analyze destruction proceses (ship's hull, offshore and port structures). The system examines dynamic fast-varying phenomena with strong non-linearities due to materials used, large displacements, contact issues and large-scale problems involving six degrees of freedom of unlimited number of vessels. The system features diversified mapping methods permitting the user to manipulate an object in terms of geometry and grid mapping. A complex multi-element model may be displayed in a variety of modes, e.g. contour lines or transparency. The finished object may be visualized in the parallel mode or virtual perspective.

The ESRI system consists of equipment, software and data bases:

DNV PHAST is a system for risk analysis and management in the event of a leak and spreading of a substance from tanks of vessels carrying liquid cargo, e.g. liquefied gases. The system calculates the initial leak quantity, amounts escaping to the water and atmosphere, determines the extent of mixing with air and dilution of the substance, and toxic or combustible effects. The system comprises a wide range of leakage models (leak and rupture of a short or long pipeline, catastrophic ruptures, failures of safety valves, collapse of tank cover, vapour leak to the atmosphere, vapours in the superstructure) and spreading of flammable, explosive and toxic substances, as presented graphically.

GOLDSIM System uses the Monte Carlo method for an analysis of input data. The method is used for modelling of complex real systems and related risk assessment. The system is flexible, based on graphic simulation of probability and has specialized modules supporting the modelling of mass transport. This makes it a perfect tool for building a model of 'total system', describing interactions and relations between the factors affecting all environmental hazards, including maritime and inland waterway transport.

The Research Centre for Ship Operation Risk Analyses was established under the Regional Operating Programme of Zachodniopomorskie Voivodeship 2007-2013. Poland's only centre with an outstandingly wide spectrum of analytical tools will carry out research and analyses focused on maritime transport safety.
