Vibration Isolation for Defense and Military applications
Protection from shockwaves due to underwater explosions
Military vessels are subject to numerous external and internal vibrations that can impact the efficiency of their equipment and sensitive material, such as embedded electronics, radars, motors, and rudder controls. Underwater explosions can cause significant damage when the shock waves they generate are transmitted through the boat hull. To protect the operations of the anti-missile launch platform of a US Navy vessel, The Socitec Group used its SYMOS software to develop a shock wave protection system that maintains the effectiveness of critical military equipment.
