The science of podded propulsors is rapidly moving forward and some fundamental investigations are required to fill the research gaps caused by a lack of non-proprietary studies.  To date there has been no research into the effects of the geometry of the pod on the powering performance of the propulsor and of the significance of variations in the primary dimensions.  A systematic series is described in which 16 model pods were geometrically varied and tested in open water.  The systematic series was designed using a multifactor analysis model.  The results of the test series are presented and preliminary analysis is included
