Vectis consolidates advanced composite design capability

Vectis has recently completed the structural design of two new high performance and weight critical advanced composite craft thereby consolidating our in-house structural design capability in both composites and metals. These craft follow the structural design of a novel 22m high speed craft and a next-generation 8m RIB both in advanced composite materials with infused and cored structural elements. This advanced composite design capability is available to other naval architects, boat designers and boat builders.

Payload Integration

Military and professional craft are inevitably fitted with and deploy a wide range of specialist equipment and payloads. 

It is essential that these payload items are integrated into the craft at the design stage as they often have significant implications for weight and performance, stability, structural foundations, electrical load, and EMC and RADHAZ. 

We have proven capability of integrating a wide range of systems and payloads into small craft, including;

  • Manually-operated Weapon Systems
  • Remote Weapon Stations
  • Surveillance and Fire Control Systems
  • Military Navigation Systems
  • Military Communication Systems
  • Specialist Payloads
