AUTONOMOUS FOILING SYSTEM
Our team has developed an innovative new autonomous foiling system that provides improved sailing performance and safety by allowing the crew to focus on driving the boat and handling the sails. Our foil control system stabilizes the dynamics of the platform by using electronic sensors to provide feedback to the foils. The use of this control system has allowed the designers of the EC53T to use highly efficient, but inherently unstable T-foils, taking advantage of the higher lift-to-drag ratio while increasing overall top speed. Our foil control system can be adapted to any power or sail foiling platform.
