Unlock the insight of your data to ensure collective decision!

Data analysis is at the core of the on-going quest for progress conducted by offshore racing teams, especially the ones preparing for the Vendée Globe. M2 is one of AIM45’s collaborative tool, focusing on performance and safety. It provides the competitors (IRC, Figaro Bénéteau, Class40, IMOCA, Ultime)  with objective information that is immediately available and ready to use. This tool and method open new fields of research.


The CORUM L’Epargne Team (Nicolas Troussel)  and DMG MORI (KojiroShiraishi)  have already adopted M2, and before them, the Edmond de Rothschild Team with which Olivier Douillard, Founder at AIM45, has been working for many years.

« The Platform meets all our needs in terms of data analysis. Our main concern is to classify these datas in order to facilitate the search for relevant information. M2 is user friendly and a lot of workis made easier for us ».

Frank Cammas, skipper of the Maxi Edmond de Rothschild


The right questions for better progress

As soon as they are back from sailing, the skippers and their team are able to discover, fromt heir mobile phone or tablet, the history of their sailing session : performance, wind conditions, loads, energy costs… In just a few easy cliks, they are able to assess the most relevant phases of their session for better progress.

« Everyone sets the tool according to the information they need (load, speed, sail settings etc.). Thanks to its collaborative approach, it allows us to progress very quickly »,

Sébastien Sainson, manager at the Maxi Edmond de Rothschild design office.


Time saving benefits and collaborative analysis

AIM45’s unique capacity of calculation allows to :

  • Fully analyse a Vendée Globe – This is a first;
  • Identify the criticalload values on the foils to set the alarms correctly onboard;
  • Measure the stresses and strains at a very high frequency.

M2 automates data processing, which was until now both time-consuming and handled exclusively by experts.

“It is very easy to use. The collaborative approach of the platform is a great advantage now that the boats are more and more complex with a lot of load sensors and fibre optic. We all  (sailors, architects, design office teams, technicians…) need to access the same level of information: M2 allows it”,

Nicolas Lunven, performance manager at CORUM L’Epargne.


Two teams preparing for the Vendée Globe are already using M2 and others have tested the tool during the Défi Azimut race.



Wind turbines, cargos with sails and other IoT’s*

AIM45 is targeted at all systems in need for control and optimisation: cargos, wind turbines, bridges, numerical devices… this collaborative web Platform, based on the analysis of sensor data, allows to connect highly qualified data to the collective intelligence of the R&D team.


*IoT :Object, structure, connected and data source tool.
