New Shipboard Battery Testing Technology Badly Needed. Shipboard electrical systems are very complex and rely on multiple supplies and loads to perform correctly. The varying supplies and loads also make it difficult, if not impossible, to test and predict how a ship’s onboard systems will operate prior to being fully operational at sea.

These lightning-quick currents can sweep up water, nutrients, salts, and any other particles in their wake, at any water depth. They are typically triggered by violent events in the ocean, including underwater earthquakes, explosions, landslides, and even […]
