We propose a system for predicting the near future wave elevation at the ship position using data observed around the ship. Our aim is to predict individual wave heights using ad hoc point observation system, such as drones, and utilize it to increase safety and efficiency of operation. This work extends the previous method for long crested wave prediction to the application for short crested wave. We elaborate on the prediction method with multi-points measurement data, and evaluate the computed prediction data for some cases to show the capability of our method.
