Test setup

After lots of functional testing the L-bow system is going to the next phase, testing the L-bow on a moving platform. The test setup ,once complete, will simulate a vessels roll and pitch. In this way the input is controlled very tightly and the behavior of the L-bow system can be observed, altered and fine-tuned. Can’t wait to see it in action.
