The ICE is a patented suspended cockpit which is designed to provide advanced, adjustable, multi axis shock mitigation.

Features

+ Unmatched Performance

FOX Float with Autotune provides a broad range of high and low speed shock mitigation with varying payload. Long 12” stroke provides a smooth ride for light and heavy loads in varying sea conditions while preventing unwanted bottoming. SHOCKWAVE uses the same sway control used by top NASCAR teams to dampen excessive roll. Our patented slider system allows freedom of movement like no other suspension system in the world.

+ Lower Weight – More Compact

The system is lighter than a conventional console, instrument mounting arch and suspended seats. This is due to the fact that these structures are integrated and can be made lighter as they will not be subject to the same stress as non suspended structures. One ICE chassis suspends all 4 occupants rather than the weight and bulk of individual suspension systems for each occupant.

+ Lower Cost

The ICE system cost is comparable of a system featuring suspension seating, a console or cockpit and a radar arch or rack for externally mounted equipment. Operating costs are much lower because equipment is not being subject to constant high shock loading.

+ Customizable to Client Needs

The ICE system is a suspension platform. Size, shape and layout of the ICE can be tailored to client requirements. The final positioning of equipment and size and shape can be modified without additional cost to the client. SHOCKWAVE has many legacy designs which can be used inside a cockpit or on an open deck.

+ Less Maintenance

The simple construction of the ICE is far less complicated and has fewer replaceable parts than three or four suspension seats, a console and a radar platform.

+ Increased Mission Capability

Since all of the equipment moves with the crew it is much easier to operate equipment and leads to a higher situational awareness, better collaboration and greater safety.

+ Sit or Stand

Models are available with or without floor to allow standing at the helm.

Untitled-10

In 2010 company President David Smith proved that the ICE or Integrated Control Environment was more than a novelty by completing a record setting trip from St. John’s Newfoundland to Victoria British Columbia thru the Northwest Passage. The extreme climate and huge seas encountered along the way would have smashed equipment and crew members to bits had the boat not been equipped with the ICE.
