Imagination is the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and,
therefore, the foundation of all invention and innovation.

WATER SUPPLY ASSOCIATES
As COO of Water Supply Associates, David is working on a plan to bring fresh water to drought-stricken Southern California that utilizes some of his marine technologies.
For boat and ship propulsion applications, Horrigan Labs/Admiral Fluidics has developed new blade, linkage and balancing technologies that resolve numerous traditional propeller flaws. The resulting SolidWater™ Propulsion System delivers improved thrust at greatly reduced costs for fuel and construction as well as other efficiencies. Traditional propellers cavitate water, creating bubbles thus wasting huge amounts of energy and making the water unstable to push or pull on. The SolidWater™ device produces a laminar discharge and makes the propeller behave like it is pushing on a solid, giving it improved traction.
Horrigan labs is currently developing Vapour Paper, a product that will reduce mold on post harvest crops. Along these same lines, Horrigan Labs is also developing MoonRocks, which retards the ripening process of fruit.
