Commissioning new naval vessels typically involves complex trade-offs between various platform aspects to arrive at the optimal concept design. Our specialist naval architecture support service helps you manage this trade-off process.
Whether your requirement is for surface ships or submarines, we offer total and independent support in assuring the safety and performance of your vessels, including:
- Ship and submarine structural assessment
- Noise and vibration
- Submarine escape, rescue and surface abandonment (SMERAS)
- Atmosphere control
- Hyperbaric medicine
- Vulnerability assessment
- Manoeuvrability, propulsion, stability and sea keeping
The advanced numerical models we use have been validated over decades of experimental testing and are proving themselves every day on current at-sea platforms. In ship and submarine concept design, we’re known for being able to answer the difficult questions because our independence allows us to consider the broadest range of possible solutions. In submarine hydrodynamics, propulsion, and SMERAS no one else can offer our level of facilities, trials/experiments and analysis.
We also have particular expertise in designing the architecture of distributed platforms requiring network enabled capabilities, making sure ships and submarines comply with environmental legislation and improving a vessel’s energy efficiency.
