GABLER Rotary Drives for Radar Antennas

Radar systems are operated with a horizontally rotating radar antenna. The required rotary drive can be driven electrically or hydraulically, however, it demands significantly more comprehensive features when employed on a submarine. Quiet running, high torque and robust design are the features necessary for reliable functioning, even in case of splash-over or dunking of the mast head. A compact, pressure-tight design allows an integration of the radar electronics immediately underneath the antenna.

GABLER develops and manufactures these high-performance rotary drive systems including the corresponding control electronics and alternatively also offers hydraulically controlled drive systems that are exclusively arranged inboard. The inboard assembly has the advantage of being accessible at any time.
