Twin V Technology – How it Works
Twin V Technology utilizes a patented twin hull shape as the principal mitigation mechanism, making it possible to reduce the need for additional externally mounted systems that add cost and weight to the surface craft. Twin V Technology increases the lateral stability of the craft and creates a natural tendency to track along a straight heading. The interaction of the two unique hulls and tunnel reduces vertical accelerations (rocking, shudder and shock) by 50%, reducing stress and thus improving the ride quality to occupants and the operability of installed equipment and systems. The resulting advantage is a reduction in musculoskeletal injuries to the knees and vertebrae, reduced kidney trauma, decreased brain jarring and increased protection to onboard equipment; all equating to significant ‘through-life’ cost savings to the government.
