Title: Active Heave Compensation Overview

Author(s): Nick Hartman

Abstract: Active Heave Compensation is the system that allows a load to follow a ships dynamic movement in such a way that either the stress on the launched wire is minimized or a submerged object kept still in the water column. This is performed through a closed loop feedback cycle to an all electric winch.
