Developing Naval Defense Grade Servo Drives

Engineering advanced military Naval defense solutions is a pressing need in today’s world. Gaining the advantage in global conflicts stems as much from technological superiority as does sheer strength. Naval defense vehicles require components that provide consistent and dependable operation. These parts must also meet an exacting standard of quality, performance, and functionality in order to safeguard the lives of our nation’s armed forces. ESI has worked with defense organizations to provide servo drives which meet or exceed the requirements of defense applications.

Commercial Sea Applications

There are now many non-military and defense uses for sea faring vessels requiring servo drives, such as ROV’s and Missile controls both above and below the surface. There are both manned and unmanned subs working to keep us safe as well as other vehicles operating on pipelines and ocean exploration. Our servo drives are built to operate in these harsh environments of extreme temperatures and pressures.

Exceptional Servo Drives Offer Engineering Solutions

ESI servo drives and control systems are designed to comply with a wide range of specifications. Our extended drives feature several advantages that make these components perfect for Naval Defense and Maritime Applications:

  • Compact Size – Space on ground systems is very limited, so our small servo drives deliver uncompromising performance and accuracy.

  • Lightweight Design – Many applications require a system to be as lightweight as possible. We can provide a wide range of drives that are incredibly lightweight to ensure ease of mobility.

  • High Accuracy Resolver Feedback – Component accuracy ensures reliable performance in the most demanding environments from extreme heat and cold to sand and snow.

  • Wide operating temperature range – Our extended operational temperature range goes from -55ºC to 121ºC.

  • Supports system-critical functions – For any defense product, failure can be catastrophic. ESI technicians and engineers are familiar with the demanding nature of defense applications and build our solution to be suitable for these critical uses.


Maintaining Certification Standards

The AS9100D certification process helps ensure accurate documentation and a higher level of quality assessment. Complying with the standards set by this process helps ensure consistency throughout every stage of engineering, design and delivery. ESI is very familiar with the AS9100D process and will provide all necessary support for this process in every system we design and manufacture.

In addition to the AS9100D certification, we also conform to other requirements to include:

  • MIL-C-5541E
  • MIL-STD-810F
  • DO-160
  • MIL-STD-464A
  • MIL-C-5015
  • DO-254
  • MIL-STD-1472
  • MIL-STD-461
  • DO-178C DAL A
