Application of SST810 Dynamic Tilt Sensor on Warship for Radar Antenna Leveling

Warships are ships used by the military to carry out maritime combat missions, also known as naval vessels. Compared with daily civilian ships, warships are equipped with various electronic devices, weapon devices and radar antennas for combat. The warships are equipped with weapons. The battleships are equipped with various types and sizes of naval guns, missiles for various purposes, counter-ship missiles, anti-aircraft missiles, anti-submarine missiles, and underwater weapons, including torpedoes, mines and deep-water bombs. Some of the warships' auxiliary ships carry aircraft and helicopters to assist in combat.

Warships are generally equipped with radars for detecting and tracking sea and air targets, providing target coordinate data for weapon systems, guiding carrier aircraft flight, and ensuring ship navigation safety and tactical maneuvers. On the warships, there is a radar and antenna for assembling operational purposes. In order to make the radar antenna work at its best, the antenna of the shipborne radar needs to be kept at a level. Therefore, real-time control of the antenna-carrying platform is required. The pitch and roll motion postures of the warships are monitored in real time. By collecting the output signals of the tilt sensors, the control system can adjust the pitch and roll angle of the warships in real time, so that the base platform of the warship radar antennas is in a horizontal state.

The Vigor Technology SST810 is a high performance dynamic tilt sensor designed to provide dynamic roll and pitch angle measurements with high dynamic bandwidth and high data output rates for moving objects. SST810 tilt sensor is fully applicable to the application requirements of warship attitude measurement. It is installed in the middle of the warship hull, and can accurately monitor the pitch and roll angle of the hull in real time. These data can be transmitted to the warship control system in real time, thus realizing the attitude adjustment of the warship, ensuring that the shipborne radar antenna is in a horizontal attitude.
