In this paper, a survey is made on modelling, simulation, control design, advances, achievements and trends in marine control systems. An overview of history of development of marine control systems is outlined. Over a long history, many achievements on marine control systems have been reached in both theory and practice. With the aid of computers and high performance software many complicated control algorithms could be applied in modelling, simulation and design of control systems for marine vehicles including surface vessels and underwater vehicles. The development of GNSSs (CGPS, GLONASS and GALILEO) and RTK/D-GNSSs stimulates design of accurate, precise and high-perfonnance control systems for marine vehicles. Telecommunication satellite-based broadband techniques are a trend of remote control systems at seas. The paper discusses challenging problems in design and simulation of marine control systems. The paper also deals with some potential research projects related to the marine control engineering at AMC/UTAS.
