Using innovative ocean technology to prepare for the America’s Cup

INEOS TEAM UK needed accurate measurements of speed through water while training for the America’s Cup in waters with complex current flows. How did Nortek’s acoustic Doppler instrumentation meet their stringent demands for high performance?

The team installed an acoustic speed log, which is a derivative of a Doppler Velocity Log (DVL), on the yacht. This cutting-edge technology is typically used on underwater vehicles such as AUVs and ROVs for accurate subsea navigation.
