Presents a globally asymptotically stabilizing (GAS) controller for regulation and dynamic positioning of ships, using only position measurements. It is assumed that these are corrupted with white noise hence a passive observer which reconstructs the rest of the states is applied. The observer produces noise-free estimates of the position, the slowly varying environmental disturbances and the velocity which are used in a proportional-derivative (PD)-type control law. The stability proof is based on a separation principle which holds for the nonlinear ship model. This separation principle is theoretically supported by results on cascaded nonlinear systems and standard Lyapunov theory, and it is validated in practice by experimentation with a model ship scale 1:70
