  • (1888PressRelease) July 04, 2016 - Perhaps one of the main things that innovators are working on in the future of transportation is speed. Everyone seems to be in a hurry to get from one point to the next. Additionally, traffic snarl-ups have made it so that many people end up wasting time in their day just sitting in traffic. Solutions to move people from one place to the other faster are definitely a good idea.

    If you are looking at transportation on water, speed is required especially by the navy who may need to move very fast from one point to another. "Supercavitation is the solution for increased speed on water!" says Mike Tornabe of the Logan Bus Company. Supercavitation works by having a layer of bubbles form around whatever your object may be.

    In the case of a boat, it would be hull. This works by reducing the amount of friction working against it by about 900 times. This means that the boat will move a lot quicker in the water than it normally would. "The navy would gain tremendously from supercavitation since they would be able to move way faster than they usually do and the fuel expenditure would also be relatively low" explained Michael Tornabe.

    Due to the speeds at which the boat or ship would move as well as its shape, sonar would have a difficult time detecting the vessel. You would be surprised to find that such a vessel could even be faster than a torpedo.

    An American Company, Juliet marine Systems located in Portsmouth, NH, is currently working on building a boat just like that. They have called it the Ghost and it is designed for defense. Its work will be to protect naval vessels as well as fend off pirates whose aim would be to attack and carry away goods on commercial ships. In addition to that, the boat could also be made into a ferry so that it can transport troops on to enemy shores fast and with ease.

    Transportation in the future will not only be looking to conquer air and land but sea as well. From magnetic levitation trains, to driverless cars, to zip lines and now supercavitation boats. There is a lot to look forward to.
