77 Lucas Oil SilverHook – upshifts t3 technology to next category :: Unlimited Hydroplanes at San Diego Bayfair :: September 16 - 17, 2017

Hot on the heels of breaking World Speed Record, US to Cuba and back, the SilverHook team is deploying their telemetry and analytics solution to the Unlimited Hydroplanes.

“It’s the next challenge” says Nigel Hook, CEO DataSkill, “the t3 technology gave us critical alerts while breaking the World Record and a challenge we overcame was sustaining satellite connection and Internet coverage across the ocean and over the horizon.”

In San Diego at Bayfair, the t3 solution handles speeds approaching 200 mph and a dense population of fans in proximity competing for cellular bandwidth. Crowds of 300,000 are estimated to attend Bayfair during the weekend.

The first test was on Friday when the U-11 Unlimited Hydroplane (Reliable Diamond Tool presents J & D's) ran successfully sharing speeds of 180mph during practice. The U-1 Unlimited Hydroplane sponsored by Home Street Bank and the current national points leader is running the YachtBot tracker supplied by SilverHook.
