Hydro Group design and manufacture cable and connector assemblies and penetrators for submarine mast raising equipment (periscopes).
Submarine Mast: Defence forces often use submarines for reconnaissance missions, approaching a coast as carefully as possible and observing the land or other ships and vessels through a periscope. During such operations, the submarine mast periscope serves as the submarine's eyes. This optical instrument is extended above the surface of the water while the submarine remains hidden below, enabling observation from a concealed position.
Hybrid Cables: Connectivity solutions for submarine masts must meet stringent industry requirements. The connectors in the pressure bulkheads must be easy to install and replace and be capable of withstanding high pressures. The cables must also be pressure resistant at high pressure and able to transmit error free optical and electrical signals to exchange data and supply power.
Hydro Group is in a position to offer a custom design solution for all Submarine Mast Systems and Raising Equipment (periscopes). Hydro Group can design and manufacture a completely new assembly system or adapt an existing proven system to suit your connectivity.
