Mast systems

The development and production of submarine mast system is the core business of GABLER. As opposed to the mast, limited to the lowering and lifting mechanism of a sensor, the mast system comprises the hydraulic control block, the hoistable mast control and the sensor. With us, you get everything from one source. So we optimize your supply chain and help you to save costs.

Masts

Smooth, sound-optimized movement in all drive positions, flexible hoisting height, high resistance to environmental conditions and a concept that saves space and weight: You can rely on our submarine masts ‒ even in extreme situations. They are made under consideration of all military standards out of composites and lightweight materials and are shock and sea-wash tested. Due to the optimized incident flow profile and the optional RAM coating (Radar Absorbing Material), the devices also show a reduced signature (acoustically, magnetically, hydrodynamically, and visually). And the best: No provision nor sensor integration required; our masts are ready to use upon delivery.

GABLER MASTs include:

Hoistable masts

The hoistable mast is the basis for every mast or mast system. Hoistable masts mainly comprise the 4 main modules: guide shaft, guide piece, drive and profiled mast. Due to the specific requirements of the navies worldwide, GABLER does not only offer a standardized and modular device platform but also tailor-made solutions for every submarine platform. Depending on the requirements, we create individual hoistable mast solutions.
The GABLER hoistable masts are platforms for optronic, radar, ESM, communication and SATCOM masts as well as for periscopes. The sensors, antennas and effectors can be combined on combination masts as desired, as required by the mission profiles.

Standard/Modular

Rectangular shaft
Non-hull-penetrating
Electric or hydraulic drive

Tailor-Made

Rectangular or round shaft or column
Hull-penetrating or non-hull-penetrating
Electric or hydraulic drive


Mast options

Depending on your requirements, GABLER offer configurable options for the mast system, mast or hoistable mast. Of course, all mast options comply with all military standards in regard to strength against shock and sea wash so that their proper functioning is always ensured, even in extreme situations.

Components

Apart from our mast systems, GABLER develop and produce system-relevant key components for the submarine platform. Just like our other products, these components meet highest requirements and comply with all military standards.

Thanks to our many years of experience in the design of electro-mechanic submarine components, we can also refine existing components of our clients or create completely new components from scratch.
