Focus on the Maritime Evolution

Our 35-plus years of software design has influenced product development projects ranging from submersible vehicles to industrial mixers to recreational propulsion devices. Engineers, creators, and entrepreneurs worldwide trust our tools to deliver results while they focus on the big picture. 

Tools for a Variety of Project Sizes

HydroComp tools ensure the best product is selected for the application, reduce risk of in-service problems, and increase customer confidence and your reputation. They support and enhance your relationship with customers.

We negotiate the changing maritime landscape by anticipating the industry’s future challenges. HydroComp welcomes your engineering challenge. Let us enhance your product development with specialized design and analysis tools, or supplement your team with our special expertise in propulsor or hull form component design.

Companies looking to expand and grow in-house engineering capabilities employ NavCad for hydrodynamic and propulsion system simulation. Propulsor-focused professionals utilize PropElements for propeller design and optimization, and PropCad is a key element for geometric propeller blade shape modeling and manufacture.

Our tools work great for your smaller projects, too, as some companies require just one or two propeller designs to complement a vehicle or fluid flow projects. Our proprietary propulsor designs offer a valuable contribution to varying types of vehicle projects.
