CDG Coast Dynamics Group, Ltd. introduced KINETIX, a vessel and crew monitoring program for high-speed craft, designed to enable  maritime agencies to optimize their shock mitigation strategies using more complete data, more easily comply with legislation, and keep their personnel and assets safer.

KINETIX consists of lab-quality, marine-grade sensors that integrate with the vessel’s shock mitigation seating, while specialized software records data in a compact, marinized housing. A team of shock and vibration scientists then work directly with agencies to provide periodic reports based on the recorded data.

With KINETIX, operators receive real-time crew shock exposure and incident alerts while underway, and fleet managers receive assessments detailing vessel impact history, crew exposure levels, and suspension seat performance. While underway, wave impact data is presented to the helm on a multi-function display such as the industry-standard Raymarine Axiom Series. Real-time impact data allows crews to make immediate adjustments to avoid injury or damage. In the event of an incident, boat operators and fleet managers can access historical data to aid in an investigation.
