Research Institution
Advanced Integrated Systems (AIS) has developed a chock insert system to satisfy all Navy and AIS derived requirements. Laboratory and system testing has demonstrated exceptional performance of this system. The insert system consists of thin steel sections coated with a proprietary finish and secured via retaining rings without any modification to the supporting chock. The AIS inserts are also adjustable, friction-free, corrosion-resistant in the marine environment, installed with common hand tools, and may be refurbished. For DDG and all other class ships, the AIS insert system will greatly extend mooring line life.
