HydroComp Inc began as a business venture in 1984 to meet the specific needs of naval architects and shipbuilders in the area of resistance and power. Thirty years later, HydroComp has grown into a multi-faceted corporation with clients, from design and construction to academia, in over sixty countries.
Founded in 1984 in New Hampshire, USA by Jill Aaron and Donald MacPherson, HydroComp was a pioneer in the very specific area of applied hydrodynamics. This focus shaped a line of unique naval architectural software packages beginning with their flagship product NavCad ® and which now includes SwiftCraft ®, PropExpert ®, PropCad ®, SwiftTrial ® and most recently, PropElements.
In addition to providing the foremost in speed and power prediction, propeller sizing and propeller design tools, HydroComp maintains a culture of active in-house research and development to help insure that the company continually evolves with the changing needs of the maritime community. This dedication to academic and in-the-field research is what sustains their cutting edge knowledge and expertise.
In its thirty years, HydroComp has been frequently recognised for a comprehensive array of consulting projects, as well as custom software programs. These projects range from AUV/ROV (submersibles), fuel efficiency projections, waterjet analysis, high-speed combatant craft, model tests, deep-sea propulsion and even pool toys.
Jill Aaron, managing director of HydroComp said, “We are humbled to have to reached this significant milestone. Without the support and loyalty of our customers, dealers and representatives and especially our employees, this significant landmark would not have been achieved. It has been a great privilege to create quality products and provide valued services.”
