Maritime Division


 [26/04/2022 Stevenage, UK] Astute Electronics is delighted to announce the launch of a dedicated maritime division, focusing on all areas of Naval and Civil marine.

Astute have worked within the aerospace and defence industry since their inception, with their presence in the area growing exponentially over the last 30+ years, providing services covering the entire span of projects from design-in to through life support.

Whilst servicing the defence industry, the Naval sector has been central for Astute, having provided project support on the likes of the Astute Class, Australian Hunter Class and Dreadnought submarines, T26 and T31E combat ships and Future Maritime Support Programme (FMSP) contracts with the QE2 carrier and T45 destroyer.

As demand mounts in this sector, Astute has appointed a specialist team, with knowledge on a multitude of project requirements with previous assignments involving controls and instrumentation, emergency propulsion systems, comms upgrades, MSSP, towed arrays, weapons and power.

Their scope of supply is inclusive but not restricted to; rapid response to service and repair – keeping ships out of dock as much as possible, electronics, service provisions, kitting and IT hardware, cable assemblies, consumables, hand tools and obsolescence management, including long-term storage.

And, with the latest investments in the next generation of Royal Navy submarines and the announcement of the ‘Aukus’ initiative, the importance of a stable supply chain becomes even more essential. Astute’s long standing supply chain services, global sourcing and counterfeit mitigation services can help maritime customers avoid the pitfalls of fraudulent parts and component obsolescence.

And it’s not only Naval projects that can benefit from this new division. Astute’s knowledge and hi-rel methodology can be applied to unmanned craft and civil marine too, servicing the cruise liners and luxury marine craft sectors.

Astute will be exhibiting at Indo Pacific, the International Maritime Exposition on the 10-12th May in Sydney with Hi-rel power partner, SynQor. Visit Astute at stand 4L14.

You can also visit Astute’s Maritime page where you can also view their popular Naval Power webinar with SynQor.
