The good folks at {SonTek} (now a {Xylem} brand) have developed an application note focused on the South Alabama Jag Ski, highlighting its equipment and capabilities. The application note will be published in the August issue of {Sea Technology}, but you can read an advance copy by clicking on the image at right {or here}. A special thanks to Christina Iarossi at {SonTek} for making the app note happen, and to Steve Werblow over at {Steve Werblow Communications} for pulling everything together, including the excellent writing.


Also, a technical manuscript about the South Alabama Jag Ski is currently under review at the Journal of Ocean Technology. Additional details on that manuscript are forthcoming.
