Submarine Equipment and Support
Advanced maritime composites are material of choice for subsea applications where they are subject …
Producing advanced composites to meet operational requirements is what sets us apart. Our extensive experience in the design and manufacture of large complex composites allows us to deliver many solutions to your programmes.
Our glass fibre vacuum-infused sandwich structures are cured at elevated temperatures in one of our large walk-in ovens. The low signature design incorporates stealth radar-absorbing materials and provides protection from wave slap, shock, hail and ice impact in addition to the pressures experienced during the operation of a gun. The composite gun shield not only provides significant weight saving over its metallic equivalent, but also has impressive resistance to impact and the effects of saltwater.
For surface ship launch tubes, we provide a lightweight and corrosion-resistant solution ready to withstand both the harsh environment in which they are deployed and the launch pressure experienced when firing. With the surface ship launch tubes, the filament-wound main body structure incorporates longitudinal stiffeners and metallic inserts to provide a completely integrated structural solution ready for final system assembly.
A Surface Ship can come under attack from multiple threats and enemy missiles, therefore requiring comprehensive protection, even when all power has been lost on board.
The answer is an Anti-Missile floating decoy system, which is a crucial enemy distraction and confusion solution that provides that essential layer of defence.
Through our range of composite processing techniques, we manufacture the decoy launcher tube structures that deploys crucial decoy equipment.
Over the past 10 years, we have successfully delivered and maintained Decoy Systems to the Royal Navy, US Navy and other international customers helping to protect our armed forces.
