HydroComp, Inc. began as a business venture in 1984 to meet the specific needs of naval architects and shipbuilders in the area of resistance and power predictions. Thirty years later, HydroComp has grown into a multifaceted corporation with clients from design to construction to academia in more than 60 countries.

Founded in 1984 in New Hampshire, U.S. by Jill Aaron (Managing Director) and Donald MacPherson (Technical Director), HydroComp was a pioneer in the very specific area of applied hydrodynamics. This focus shaped a line of unique naval architectural software packages beginning with our flagship product NavCad, and which now include SwiftCraft, PropExpert, PropCad, SwiftTrial and most recently, PropElements.

In addition to providing the foremost in speed and power prediction, propeller sizing and propeller design tools, HydroComp maintains a culture of active in-house research and development to help insure that the company continually evolves with the changing needs of the maritime community. This dedication to academic and in-the-field research is what sustains their cutting edge knowledge and expertise.

In its 30 years, HydroComp has been frequently recognized for a comprehensive array of consulting projects, as well as custom software programs. These projects range from AUV/ROV (submersibles), fuel efficiency projections, waterjet analysis, high speed combatant craft, model tests, deep sea propulsors, even pool toys.

“We are humbled to have to reached this significant milestone,” said Jill Aaron. “Without the support and loyalty of our customers, dealers and representatives, and especially our employees, this significant landmark would not have been achieved. It has been a great privilege to create quality products and provide valued services.”
