The goal of this project is to evaluate and determine the ability of the Hilti raised deck to meet the Navy platform raised deck requirements from an environmental and weight perspective. The project team plans to provide the NAVSEA Technical Warrant Holder with Objective Quality Evidence that supports Government approval to implement the Hilti raised deck on Navy platforms.
The project team will: investigate the use of newly acquired components of Hilti North America through the acquisitions of another supplier of light weight support systems; review historical data compiled over years of testing; optimize the design for shock, weight and cost; and analyze the optimized design to determine if OQE can be produced via analysis in lieu of shock testing.
