Research Institution

Candent Technologies has successfully developed a low cavitation, high efficiency, extremely low acoustic signature marine propulsor, and is proposing to apply this advanced technology to the design and development of a compact, efficient, electric driven, stowable/retractable, Quiet Auxiliary Propulsion System that will meet and likely surpass the requirements for the SOCR (and 11m RHIB, as well as similar small craft). In addition, Candent will use a highly innovative approach to provide a high efficiency, very compact, direct drive system with very low acoustic signature to complement the quiet advanced technology propulsor, as well as a state of the art fully integrated electronic controller and operator steering and control interface system, also tuned to mitigate and lower noise.
