Like submarines, warships can utilise modern composites to replace steel structures in order to reduce topside weight and improve transverse stability of the ship.
Airspeed manufactured and supplied 1,500 lightweight floor panels for each of the Air Warfare Destroyers under contract to ASC Shipbuilding.
More recently, we are proud to have been contracted for the design and manufacture of the Replenishment At Sea (RAS) Stump Mast for the Type 26 Global Combat Ship. The RAS Stump Mast provides a structure for the transfer of solid payloads to the warship’s forward RAS receiving station.
