JetBoots are a personal propulsion system for divers from Mazin Submersible Technology, Inc. of Pasadena, California. MST contracted with HydroComp for the development of a new propulsor for their JetBoots version 4 to increase thrust and reduce motor demand.
Our tasks were to identify the characteristics and parameters of the highest-efficiency propulsor, and to prepare a 3D CAD model. We delivered a propulsor design based on a contemporary high-efficiency ducted thruster. MST took our CAD models for the duct and propeller, and went directly to manufacture and testing.
According to MST president Ben Mazin, “I tested them a couple of weeks ago, and they are pretty amazing. The thrust is about twenty lbs, and the current draw is in the ballpark of what we estimated. They are really fast!”
