HOVERCRAFT AND HYDROFOIL MOTION DATA

Motion data have been collected during Ministry of Defence trials on various vessels, including several hovercraft and hydrofils. Initially commercial instrumentation items were employed. Recent innovations have been the development of a recording system--HADAS (hydrodynamic analogue data acquisition system) and the use of navigation position fixing aids. The trials have involved operations in various sea states, with the recent results being suitable for spectral analysis. Order from NSFI as No. 17385.
