Complementing Austal’s capabilities in shipbuilding is the company’s expertise in the development and integration of advanced vessel control and information management systems.

Austal offers both defence and commercial operators the latest in maritime technologies to optimise the performance of their ships, operations and their complex on-board information management, communications, radar and weapons systems.

Austal’s proven MOTION CONTROL SYSTEM provides improved seakeeping capability through enhanced computer controlled motion reduction – ensuring a smoother, more stable, productive and comfortable ride for crew, passengers and cargo.

MARINELINK is the trusted control and monitoring system developed and refined for more than 20 years by Austal. To cater for customer requirements in an era of rapidly advancing digital technology, Austal has upgraded and expanded our reliable MARINELINK system to a new suite of on-board and on-shore digital systems.

The new generation of MARINELINK will enable ship operators on-board and on-shore to monitor, analyse and act – delivering safe, efficient and comfortable operation of their vessels.

MARINELINK delivers advanced integrated monitoring and control, remote vessel performance tracking and voyage optimisation to reduce fuel consumption and enhance passenger comfort.
