Center & Right Frame: This frame shows the early HARTH tests to prove
ultra-stability, significant drag reduction, high fuel efficiencies, low hull &
structural stresses, very high-speeds (with
smooth stability) in any sea at any heading, including quartering seas,
having no rock,
roll, pitch or heave. The vessel operated on this day did so with only
air-pusher prop-driven model airplane engine. Stability and
the significant reduction of drag became immediately evident resulting in
Hydro Lance HARTH technology began development in the early 1980's with
the first demonstration vessel operated in 1987. This technology has
advance significantly since that time, with several such scale vessels run
to destruction after many tests, gathering engineering data for analyses
and refinements. We share this very early clip with you to
demonstrate that the HARTH Technology is far beyond being just a concept,
it is a proven capability.
This research and development
was completed in the year 2000. Our attention has since been invested in
defining and refining the many and
varied application designs of the HARTH Fast Ocean Ship technology.
The Company has now evolved numerous
refinements for a wide range of ocean transport application and markets.
Below can be seen two such application; the passenger ferry and aircraft
operation of this fast ship, there
is no heave, pitch, roll, yaw, sway, hog or sag - and no Sea Sickness - ever
is an example shown (left frame) of a smaller Hydro Lance passenger ferry with a capacity of
310 passengers, having a sustainable cruising speed of 0-70 Knots - even
through high seas. Other
designs, which can be found throughout this web site, may have cruising speed of more
than 150 Knots - with the same stability in high seas. Right Frame shows a
Hydro Lance Aircraft carrier capable of gentle matched-speed landings and
take-off's for a wide variety of jet aircraft.
