Odysseus is an education sailing yacht for the Hungarian Yacht Academy lead by Tibor Vass. In 2011 Odysseus suffered a major electronic system damage caused by lightning strike in Punat / Croatia. Our team were commissioned to redesign and install the entire power, navigation and communication system. The expectations were extreme in terms of reliability: Odysseus passed already more than 140.000 nautical miles and sails over 10.000 miles with 150+ cadets annually in various weather conditions.

Interesting fact: a fully redundant managing and monitoring system with video surveillance system installed in the captain’s cabin further improving safety on board.
