We are living in a complex digital world, with information coming at us fast all the time, both on and off the water. The developers at Annalisa are helping us to make sound decisions in the face of such an onslaught of information with their new system of real-time sailing performance software.
Among their unique challenges is sifting through the numerous inputs from instrument logs – boatspeed, heading, course over ground, speed over ground, wind speed and angle, heel angle, etc. – and filtering them for relevance and accuracy before calculations even start. Then using that data in calculations for producing the relevant information needed to characterise performance, doing this in an understandable and accessible format, in real time, and presenting it in a hostile environment of either bright sun or complete darkness, constant movement of the platform at all angles, and often doused in corrosive salt water.
