Inalia

Inalia collaborates with AMERICAN´s CUP NYYC American Magic team on foils load monitoring.

NEED

Design of foils load measurement system, installing fiber optics, calibrating the system, and converting data into loads supported by the AC40 foils.

CHALLENGES

Definition of the measurement strategy to achieve the sensitivity and accuracy requirements. Durability in marine environment.

SOLUTION

Design of foils monitoring strategy.

Thanks to the outstanding results achieved with the load measurement system on the first AC40, the America’s Cup team decided to expand our collaboration. We designed and installed monitoring systems for the foils of their new AC40 ‘Magic’, as well as for the foils and mast of the AC75 ‘Raven’, set to compete in the 37th America’s Cup.
