Suspension Systems - Click any image below for more information.
The shock mitigation requirements of high speed military and over the horizon operations has created the need for a new approach to suspension systems. The objective of a suspension seat is to separate the helmsman and crew from the worst effects of vibration and impact at sea. A suspension system integrates the suspension for the man with suspension for critical equipment. This links the helmsman to his controls and the crew to their workstations to improve their ability to function at high speeds in rough conditions. Suspension systems include a) combined suspension seat and helm station b) suspension cab with multiple seats, helm and workstations c) suspension deck with all seating and equipment attached.
