Before founding our company in 2000, Justin and Robert Bishop designed the WhisprWave® wave attenuator, which has been successfully deployed in Lake Ontario, at the Naval Amphibious Base in Norfolk, Virginia, and in the Thames River in Connecticut.
After selling the WhisperWave business, they developed more advanced technology, utilizing a radical new approach to wave attenuation — HALO was born. While the WhisprWave can reduce a wave's height, it could acheive only 40% attenuation, and then only for waves with short wavelengths (up to 5 seconds.) HALO is able to double the WhisprWave's performance, achieving an unprecedented 80% attenuation and can extend that protection to waves greatly exceeding 5 second periods, up to 10 seconds and beyond!
Shortly before Robert retired in early 2003, Elemental Innovation completed laboratory testing proving the success of the HALO wave attenuator.
Since beginning HALO deployments in early 2004, Elemental Innovation has set about re-writing the rules for wave protection.
