Mast Raising Equipment

Submarine Masts Carrying the Sensor Payloads

Quiet Modular Masts

MacTaggart Scott has designed and manufactured over 400 mast raising systems for use on submarines worldwide. The first Quiet Modular Mast (QMM) went to sea in the late 1990s and developments of this concept form the basis of the Company's current product range.

  • Rapid installation and removal
  • Simple boat interfaces
  • Low radar signature
  • Low weight
  • Proven

PROFILED

The QMM design is hydro-dynamically profiled to minimise drag and turbulence. It is designed to ensure usability at any operating position and speed with minimum vibration.
