Naval vessels are becoming more sophisticated and the roles they fulfill are expanding. Advanced systems for weapon targeting, threat detection & defense and peripheral surveillance are just a few application examples that are keeping military personnel safe while helping them perform more effectively at sea. These systems depend on flawless targeting and tracking, and must not be impeded by the constant motion of the vessel or any harsh environmental conditions.
To keep more sailors out of harm’s way, the development of newer ship systems drives to reduce the number of required crew members. These new systems are also driving reductions in maintenance and environmental impact by utilizing electric power instead of hydraulic. Automatic hatch-ways, actuated hangar doors, surveillance and other advancements require powerful, reliable motion systems.
Steady & Rugged Solutions
Mounted on a seagoing vessel, radar and satellite tracking systems need to maintain precise elevation and azimuth as the ship navigates rough seas. For weapons and defensive systems, unpredictable motion of the target makes accurate tracking an even greater challenge. The servo motors driving these multi-axis systems must perform without fail in harsh weather, and salt water conditions for extended periods of time and able to withstand significant shock and vibration.
