Research Institution
A universal, reconfigurable self-contained watercraft stowage system has been developed which is designed to eliminate the need for customized cradle systems currently in use for Navy/Marine/Coast Guard mission modules (HSB, Spartan, RMS/RMV, RHIB, UUV, SDV systems). This will preserve precious deck space on Navy vessels and potentially save money via hardware standardization. The stowage system has an integral shock/vibration isolator specially developed to attenuate such energy for all stowage system configurations and for all specified mission modules. It is estimated that this innovative device is rapidly reconfigurable within 30 minutes by a single person.
