Autonomous Nav System Receives Green Light for Use on Foss Tug

A Foss tug based in San Francisco has received approval from ABS for the use of an autonomous navigation and enhanced situational awareness system. The Rachael Allen, the newest ship-assist tug in the Foss fleet, is fitted with Sea Machines’ SM300 autonomous and remote navigation suite. Her crew will use the system during transits and loitering, and Foss plans to try out remote piloting from a shoreside control station as well.
