OT is defined as technology that interfaces with the physical world and includes Industrial Control Systems (ICS), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Distributed Control Systems (DCS). [2]


Operational technology (OT): The technology commonly found in cyber-physical systems that is used to manage physical processes and actuation through the direct sensing, monitoring and or control of physical devices, for example, motors, valves, pumps, etc. [3]

In a vessel these systems include: plant and machinery, RF communications, on and off board sensors and navigation systems.
