Title: High Speed Combatant Craft Automated Ride Control

Abstract:

In P2, we will continue development of our integrated smartride Automatic Ride Control (ARC) system. In P1 we began ocean testing so P2 will concentrate on raising the TRL to approach a production ready system. With sophisticated onboard instrumentation, we will demonstrate at least a 30% reduction in unwanted craft motion, including bow slamming. Early in the project, a system will be made available to expert operators for evaluation and feedback. Later in the year, we will install a system on a government craft. While ride quality and shock mitigation is the primary focus, we also hope to show a marked improvement in high speed craft efficiency by maintaining an optimized hull incidence throughout the operating envelope. A successful result will introduce small high speed craft to the 21st century of automatic vehicle controls, mimicking the recent trends in automotive and aerospace dynamic systems.
