The V-Wing Difference

Design Advantage
The V-Wing creates a hydrodynamic flow over its unique wing design to produce a depressive force that pulls down many times its own mass (typically a 5:1 lift-to-drag ratio). By eliminating the need for motorized propulsion, V-Wing reduces potential points of failure, product weight, and component costs.

The V-Wing’s self-contained towed body also provides the flexibility to mount a variety of marine technologies for commercial and government applications.

Intuitive Operation
A moving command ship can receive real-time transmissions from V-Wing via a connected cable. Operators control V-Wing’s set depth based on the length of cable in the water and boat speed. And to simplify operations, Boston Engineering’s software program helps operators determine the appropriate V-Wing depth.
