Cooperation with Sailing Living Lab
We cooperate testing and promoting RaceMate technology.
RaceMate was born from the R&D project NavSub developed by University of Murcia for the subacuatic navigation of
S-70 class submarines of the Spanish Navy At present VMG is tranferring this technology fron Defence to competition sailing by putting on the market RaceMate.
RaceMate system presents an integrated solution for specific racing data management, for navigation and for tactics. This solution has 2 parts: software and hardware (processing unit, data screens…) that can interact with sensors and devices on the market (connectivity NMEA0183 and NMEA200), and can use the navigation instruments of the boat.
RaceMate system is controlled, configured and monitored from a very powerful software, designed for racing use and with a very intuitive and comfortable to use interface, from the chart table, cockpit, helm, or any other place of the boat. In this sense, all operations are designed to be performed on the touch screen and therefore is not necessary to enter bearings and distances from the keyboard. Thus, it offers a simple and effective handling that can be carried out in an agile way even at the peak moments of a race.
It is now installed in Acrobat to test it for ocean navigation and promote it all over the world. Any sailor can contact us to come to Acrobat to sail with us and try this system.
