One integrated construction to detect flying and floating objects
The Holland class OPV’s (ocean-going patrol vessels) are equipped with an innovative, integrated mast that houses all systems that together function as the ‘eyes and ears’ of the ship. The integrated mast keeps the ship free of antennas and radars. The sensors are specially designed for operations close to the coast. The optical observation system, which is also integrated in the mast, provides continuous monitoring of the environment and the status of the mast throughout the day and night. Nevesbu has made the design of the construction and infrastructure design of the integrated mast (based on the preliminary design of Thales); and was also responsible for the production information and support during the building process.
