Current, wind, and waves are our business.

Dynamic Systems Analysis (DSA) is recognised as experts in marine renewable energy, aquaculture, defence, and offshore oil & gas sectors analyses and design. DSA is at the forefront of technology development, authoring many ocean industry standards and guidelines, and leading numerous research and development projects.

DSA developed ProteusDS, a powerful dynamic analysis software platform capable of simulating the response of vessels, structures, lines and technologies in harsh marine environments. It is modern, customizable and validated. The software is used by ocean engineers and ocean industry professionals to test virtual prototypes of systems that are exposed to extreme wind, current and waves. Assessing system dynamics is all about reducing risk, keeping projects on time and on, budget.

ShipMo3D is produced, supported and developed by DSA under license from Defense R&D Canada, an agency of the Canadian Department of National Defense. ShipMo3D is a cutting edge software application used to model the interactions of ships and offshore structures with waves and the marine environment. The software uses advanced time and frequency domain options, to analyze manoeuvring ships and other floating structures in a variety of sea states. ShipMo3D is capable of enhancing in-house analysis, design, and system optimization capabilities.

DSA uses these powerful software packages to works with ocean industry professionals around the globe to solve ocean engineering problems. Both ProteusDS and ShipMo3D are used in house for consulting projects and licensed commercially.

We are available to support clients at all project stages including projects that involve unusual or specific challenges.  In short, DSA strives to provide solutions which enable those working with vessels, structures, lines, and technologies in harsh marine environments to reduce risk, protect the environment, and reduce costs.

Our experienced and dedicated team works across many marine sectors: marine renewables, offshore & subsea, aquaculture & fisheries, ocean technology, naval architecture and defence.  We view our ability to customize quickly and expertly respond to the unique challenges of each client as vital.

We invite you to work with our experienced team and leverage our numerical modeling expertise to make your project a success.
