Our Work: Marine
Development of an optimised propeller shaft design
Stirling was approached to support for the design of a large marine propeller and shaft line for a new fleet of naval vessels. This project required specialist technical capabilities, including 3D finite element modelling, shaft dynamics and propeller performance.
Submarine Control System Design
Stirling autopilot software is currently installed on six different classes of submarine in a variety of different configurations, and is in-service with many different navies across the globe.
Modelling & Simulation of Towed Buoy
Our client had conducted a technology demonstrator programme to design a towed buoy and required a modelling and simulation partner to support their evaluation of the buoy performance in a number of mission-critical scenarios.
The Future of Submarine Control
In the future, submarine platform design will require systems that improve performance in terms of stealth and increased mobility, while providing operational autonomy and reducing operator workload and operational costs. To improve the capabilities of future submarines for new roles and missions, we developed the Full Authority Submarine Control (FASC) product.
