We spend a lot of time testing with the following:
- In the labs with sea water pumped into tanks, measuring growth under microscopes.
- In the labs measuring sonic vibrations across slabs of fiberglass cut from real boats using 1GHz digital oscilloscopes.
- On our test boats boats normally without any antifouling.
- Small amount of customer boats (without & with old antifouling) using our prototype research & development systems.
All of this testing gets incorporated into our new software & frequency patterns.
We would now like to introduce you to our new test bed, its a 90ft barge next to International Paints antifouling test bed. We think it is in the most prevalent place in the UK for algae & growth.
Our barge is to the left & International Paints is to the right.
