Real time estimation of waves and ship responses using onboard measurements has been under investigation in recent years. This has been done using different methods, including parametric and non-parametric models. Since none of the methods are believed to be fully accurate, it is important to assign an uncertainty measure to the waves and responses that are being estimated. In this paper, a parametric model approach based on moments of responses is considered for wave estimation. A method based on linear error propagation is introduced to assess the uncertainty of wave estimations.The uncertainty of response calculation based on the estimated wave is also quantified.
