AbstractThe National Research Council-Institute for Ocean Technology (NRC-IOT) is Canada's national centre for ocean technology research and development. It was established in 1985 to support the development of innovative technologies in the private sector and to assist oceans-related public initiatives. The Institute's capability is unique to the nation - no other organization offers the combination of knowledge, experience and world-class facilities. Research is conducted on technologies for use in ocean observation, marine safety, Arctic operations and performance evaluation. Major facilities operated by the Institute include a 200-metre Towing Tank, a 75-metre by 32-metre Offshore Engineering Basin, and a 90-metre Ice Tank, the longest in the world. In this essay, author Robert Pallard talks about America's Cup testing that took place at the Institute over a 16-year period.
