When you get an opportunity with NavyX – the Royal Navy’s Autonomy and Lethality Accelerator – to trial your game-changing in-service stability technology, it naturally generates a certain level of buzz around the office.
In fact, after two days on board the Royal Navy’s newly launched testbed and trials ship – the XV Patrick Blackett – it’s safe to say the Tymor team is still feeling pretty pumped.
Last week, our naval architects Manuela Bucci and Niall MacLennan accompanied Tymor’s managing director Kevin Moran south to Portsmouth’s Naval Base.
Presenting to an audience which included some of UK Defence’s most forward-looking engineering talent, the team demonstrated how our innovative MOSIS technology can enhance operational safety by measuring the stability of MOD ships in operation.
It’s a technology that we believe could add significant value to the Royal Navy’s operations and performance. Having a regular and accurate measurement of a ship’s stability– (traditionally this is a measurement which can only be done out of service, in port, and with a significant amount of planning) has obvious security and safety advantages.
But MOSIS also delivers potentially significant time and economic gains in a damage control situation, by ensuring the vessel crew are working form the most up to date information, and determining with accuracy if corrective action can be undertaken to enable the vessel to remain at sea, or if the ship needs to cut short its deployment and return to base.
Thank you to everyone who attended and gave such positive feedback.
