Naval &

Ocean Engineering


For almost two decades, INTELLIGHT® successfully develops highly loaded structures for naval and ocean applications in plastic, composite and hybrid design that are exposed permanently to salt and fresh water. With a tailored design and an appropriate material selection, composites can play off their outstanding advantages regarding corrosion and lightweight, thus guaranteeing a maintenance free operation.  


The application of plastics and composites ensures a water exposed operation for decades for highly stressed components without corrosion. The right selection of the matrix system and an appropriate protective coating avoid osmosis and ensure UV protection.


For some naval applications, also a minimum of electromagnetic signal damping and signal reflexion is essential. INTELLIGHT® here provides an extensive know-how regarding signal processing up to 40 GHz (L-Band)  for ship and submarine applications.
