M Ship Co. Files Patent Infringement Suit on Its M-Hull Technology.
The M-hull, a non-conventional air entrapment hull design, was invented by M Ship Co.'s founders, Chuck Robinson and Bill Burns. M Ship Co. recently completed its highly successful delivery of the military demonstrator, Stiletto, an 80-foot twin M-hull design. This impressive craft showcases the many benefits of M Ship's air entrapment technology for military operations in littoral and riverine areas around the world. The military has recognized these shallow water regions as important future battlespaces and is investing in the development of new hull technologies with improved operational capabilities in such areas.
The M-hull's performance capabilities also offer rapid penetration into the commercial and recreational markets. Expansion into these developing markets has been an important element of M Ship's overall business strategy.
M Ship's lead counsel in the lawsuit is Richard A. Clegg of the San Diego law firm Seltzer Caplan McMahon Vitek. Harvey W. Gurland, Jr., of Duane Morris LLP's Miami office, will be local co-counsel.
