M.I.T. Test Data

Utilizing a Watson Industries Model AHRS-C300A attitude-rate sensor and three orthogonally-mounted Lucas NAS-002-C accelerometers, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology was able to collect and analyze the maneuverability and seakeeping performance of the Night Cat 27.

Tests concluded that the Night Cats unique hull design allows it to turn at a rate 112% faster than similar craft and that, “a sharp turn in the Night Cat offers a unique experience to the uninitiated passenger and a level of control and tracking to pilot that would seem difficult to match in any craft.”
