Naval Systems

Moog designs and manufactures high-precision motion control and electronic solutions for many of the world’s leading naval forces. Our marine technologies include electrohydraulic (EH), electrohydrostatic (EHA), and electromechanical (EM) motion control devices for nuclear submarines, deep submersibles, surface and blue water ships. Comprehensive systems are engineered to perform reliably in the harshest of marine environments providing long-life and dependability. Extending our customers’ investments even further is the scalability and upgradeability designed into every component and system along with through life support.

Submarine Actuation

Moog’s legacy supplying actuation in U.S. Navy submarines extends more than 50 years, from the USS George Washington-class all the way to today’s USS Virginia-class and the future Columbia-class. Our critical control systems operate valves, open lock hatches and provide propulsion from the torpedo room to the engine room and everywhere in between.
