    General requirements for most research vessels may be similar such as packages of survey equipment, extensive accommodation, the provision of laboratories, a safe working deck, good seakeeping characteristics, low noise and the avoidance of bubble sweep-down. Other operational requirements, such as dimensional limitations, manoeuvrability, ice capability, towing requirements and speed, mean that there are many different solutions for optimising a design. The IMT suite of vessels provides the basis for developing these specialised designs to meet your specific requirements.
