The ML400 Series hull unit is designed to provide maximum energy transfer in terms of lift force based on the Magnus Effect. The unit is a compact rugged design built to withstand the most demanding military and commercial applications.
For maximum roll reduction, the ML400 is mounted in the turn of the bilge with the rotor oriented perpendicular to the vessel hull during underway operations. Rotor spin direction and speed are altered during operation, as needed, to obtain optimal performance. To minimize appendage drag, the rotor stows neatly, parallel to the vessel hull, when the stabilizers are not in use. The rotor orientation and spin functions are precisely managed by Quantum’s hydraulic and electrical control systems.
Designed using the latest technology and high-quality materials the ML400 Series hull unit offers the best performance of any system where significant roll reduction is required at loitering speeds.
