Nortek is pleased to invite you to the Nortek Workshop 2016 which will take place in the French seaside town of Hyères on the Côte d’Azur between May 23rd and 27th.
Nortek announced today that it has collaborated with the PUMA Ocean Racing team to develop a modified compact Doppler Velocity Log (DVL) for PUMA’s Mar Mostro Volvo Open 70 yacht competing in the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-2012. The project, which was completed over the course of the past year, has resulted in the successful integration of boat speed, leeway and in-situ ocean current readings. Translation: a secret weapon in the battle to go as fast and efficiently as possible.
Stringing a series of radar images together in a video, it is possible to see the details of what the ocean surface is doing as the tide is changing. Vortex shedding along the coast or around structure, converges areas, etc. all becomes visible with the SeaDarQ software.
Scientifiques et ingénieurs venus du monde entier se sont réunis il y a quelques semaines à Newport, Rhode Island, pour trois jours de présentations et de formations à l'utilisation des instruments Nortek.
