About DSA

Founded in 2006, DSA is a privately owned ocean engineering consultancy and software company with locations in Victoria, BC and Halifax, NS

About ProteusDS

A proven dynamic analysis software with advanced finite element, hydrodynamic, current, wind, wave and mechanism modeling capabilities.

About ShipMo3D

A proven 3D panel method hydrodynamic software for marine, offshore, defence, subsea and marine renewable applications.

Aquaculture Engineering Services

DSA assesses aquaculture moorings and structures using finite-element analysis software and advanced instrumentation.

Launch & Recovery

Safely deploying and recovering subsea equipment, such as a tidal energy turbines or AUVs,
is challenging. Comprehensive dynamic simulation can reduce risks and costs.

Mooring Analysis

Complex systems require powerful analysis tools. DSA provides mooring analysis services and software built on experience.

Real-time FEA

With VROV and ProteusDS technologies, accurate real-time interactive simulation of risers and pipelines is possible: take front-end engineering design to the next level.

Tidal Energy Services

Dynamic analysis capabilities for the tidal energy industry: floating or submerged turbine platform analysis, mooring analysis, cable lay, installation analysis and so much more.

Wave Energy Services

Analyse WEC moorings, mechanism joints, wave and wind interaction, and power take offs by using ProteusDS or by working with Dynamic Systems Analysis.

ProteusDS Validation & Verification

This document outlines the quality management principles that Dynamic Systems Analysis Ltd. (DSA) uses in the
development of its software.

ProteusDS Aquaculture Validation

This document outlines the validation of the dynamic analysis software package ProteusDS for use in assessing the loads in moorings and nets for marine finfish aquaculture applications. As an example, common types of finfish farms are shown in Figure 1. This analysis is required by several standards including: Norwegian Standard NS9415, ISO16488, and Marine Scotland’s technical standard for finfish aquaculture

Installation Analysis

OpenHydro recently deployed the first of two 21M 1100T open centre tidal turbines in the Bay of Fundy. But before this turbine was deployed OpenHydro used ProteusDS to simulate its installation. Find out how OpenHydro used ProteusDS dynamic simulation software to reduce operational risk and so much more

Analysis of Elastic Moorings

DSA partnered with Seaflex, maker of the Seaflex mooring system to validate the use of ProteusDS for simulating Seaflex technology, and built an integrated tool to enable the rapid design of Seaflex mooring installations with ProteusDS.

Analysis of Taut-moored Platform

Sustainable Marine Energy(SME) recently completed development of the 1st generation 100KW PLAT-O tidal energy platform – but they’re not done, SME is currently developing the 2nd generation 200KW PLAT-O tidal platform. SME used ProteusDS to develop a model to predict the motions and loads on the platform and compare with tank test data. Find out how SME used ProteusDS dynamic simulation software to reduce operational risk and so much more
