This report summarizes an investigation of the use of shock isolation mounts in small high-speed craft to protect equipment from wave slam effects. Mount design methods are discussed and calculations are presented that illustrate the significant challenges encountered when attempting to design effective shock isolation systems. An alternative method for minimizing the risk of equipment failure during high-speed operations in rough seas is discussed.
