SLICE is a new, patented ship technology that enables SWATH (small waterplane area twin hull) ships to operate at higher speeds while retaining their characteristic low motions in a seaway. SLICE technology's key innovation is reduction of wavemaking drag, which is accomplished by the introduction of four short struts, four teardrop-shaped submerged hulls, and speeds well beyond the 'hump' on the Froude resistance curve. Combining increased speed with stability in high seas, SLICE opens up new commercial and military markets to SWATH technology.
