- Title: RIDE ENGINEERING: A Multi-pronged Approach to Shock Reduction
- Date: October 3, 2023
- Time: 4:00 PM
- Location: Room 117, IBEX, Tampa, Florida
For an extended period, the marine industry has wrestled with the persistent issue of high slamming loads, causing discomfort and injury to operators and passengers.
SKYDEX, along with other industry partners, will discuss shock reduction from the point of impact when the vessel collides with waves to the propagation of destructive forces through the hull's material structure, cockpit, pilothouse, seats, helm station, and their ultimate effects on human occupants.
The Boat of the Future (BOTF) serves as a pragmatic case study, aimed at enhancing the specifications employed by our armed forces. Despite the stagnation of high-performance pursuit vessel specifications, this world renown group believes in the potential for substantial improvement. This diverse team of experts is determined to reshape the landscape of high-performance pursuit vessels.
