Sail-by-wire WingSailTM Control™
The speed and heading of a recreational or commercial vessel outfitted with the WingSailTM and WingSailTM-Control™software can be controlled aboard the vessel by a captain or helmsman using an accelerator. Harbor Wing's patent-pending Sail-by-Wire WingSailTM Control™utilizes an intelligent software-directed electro-mechanical control system to modulate the WingSailTM™. The precise control it provides, including robotic responses that automatically depower the wing when wind velocity exceeds preset safety tolerances, will enable even large sailing vessels to be piloted with no deck crew other than the captain.
