SKYDEX to Participate in Next Generation RS & WBV Workshops in Southampton UK, April 25 – 26

April 24, 2016

A unique program of two specialist events for the sub IMO / sub 24 metre professional sector is being held at the Grand Harbour in Southampton UK this week. The fast-moving workshop style program brings together an international group of experts armed with the latest knowledge to identify problems that affect the maritime sector worldwide - and highlight potential solutions.

SKYDEX is sponsoring the Next Generation RS & WBV Workshop on 26 April 2017 which focuses on RIBs and high speed craft. Topics focus on the idea that there is no “one off” solution to the demands of fast boats at sea and how the high incidence of injuries to personal can affect the overall performance of an organization. This seminar highlights why an effective shock mitigation strategy is essential.

SKYDEX Technologies Inc. is lead sponsor of the Workshop days. Based in the US, the company is a global leader in impact mitigation and cushioning solutions with technology installed in over 23,000 military vehicles and 6,000 marine craft. SKYDEX CEO and President James Taylor said, 'Our proprietary technology is engineered to excel in the harshest and most demanding conditions. We are pleased to support this unique event that enables us to launch new products that are relevant to maritime professionals in Europe and worldwide.'

John Haynes added, 'Boat builders and specialist component manufacturers now recognize that they need to work together to develop next generation systems that fit the rapidly changing requirements of modern fleets. The unique knowledge gained from these workshop sessions will help to shape long term decisions that lead to improvements for in-service systems and procurement of next generation vessels.'
