The Navy’s emphasis on OACE relies heavily on COTS-based equipment. The appropriate environment must be maintained for this COTS equipment, regardless of the extreme conditions experienced in a naval sheltered environment. Isolating COTS equipment from these extreme conditions requires enclosures that are at least as heavy as the payload of the equipment they carry. Until now…

Working in partnership with Frontier Electronic Systems, the Element 6 Composites team has developed a shock-isolated carbon fiber enclosure capable of withstanding over 100 Gs of shock, Mil-STD-167-1A Type I vibration and EMI (MIL-STD-461F) and provides a survivable environment for internal electronics. This innovative shock-isolated carbon fiber enclosure does all this yet weighs 60% less than a comparable metallic cabinet thereby reducing top-side weight.

For more information regarding the development of this shock-isolated carbon fiber enclosure or for more technical details, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
