The urgent need to address climate change and at the same time continue to supply the economy with the affordable energy it needs to grow and help to maintain our standard of living is a conundrum facing many nations all over the world. The pain of transition is being felt particularly acutely here in Australia.

In the shipping world, the challenge of meeting the low sulphur fuel regulations, the resulting shift in fuel demand, and the ongoing need to power maritime trade, while meeting the IMO GHG emissions reduction targets, has created a significant time of change for the global shipping industry.

Utilising Electrohydrostatic Actuation Technology for Critical Naval Subsea and Surface Missions

Date:
Wednesday 9 October
Time:
1500-1600
Registration:
This event is open and complimentary to PACIFIC 2019 trade visitors, exhibitors and conference delegates.

Attendance is subject to availability and is on a first come, first served basis).
Location:
Starboard Theatrette, Hall 4, ICC Sydney

Missions for Submarines, Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) and Autonomous Surface Vessels (ASV) may require transiting the open ocean and conducting over-the-horizon operations in the littoral zone for months. These longer duration missions will demand highly reliable control actuation to ensure mission success, survivability of high value payloads, and to remain undetected.

Electrohydrostatic Actuators (EHA), often referred to as “power by wire”, are fully self-contained actuation systems that combine design elements from electric and electrohydraulic actuation. Moog began investing to develop advanced EHA technology in the late 1980’s for the next generation of “more electric” aircraft flight controls. Over the last two decades, we have matured the technology making significant advancements in performance, reliability, weight and design footprint making it ideal for critical naval subsea and surface missions.
