  • tough, flexible, foil-shaped fairing allows multi-layered winch wrapping, eliminates strumming, reduces drag (Cd 0.7) and catenary (cable length), saves fuel and increases vehicle depth and paravane spreads
  • highly durable material, with unique internal "bridge" for foil shape retention under hydrodynamic forces and following high-tension wrapping and storage on reels
  • unique King Fairing/Anti-Stacking Ring anchors individual fairing module segments to allow free-swivel alignment to flow
  • 40% - 60% drag reduction over hairy fairings or bare cable
  • available for any cable diameter
  • easy field installation and replacement
  • hundreds of kilometers in service on seismic tow cables & ropes
  • for use on towed, tethered, or moored rope or cable systems
