High Performance Linear Actuators for Naval Applications

Moog's line of electromechanical linear actuators offer a range of products that are affordable, robust, and compatible with the difficult environments of naval shipboards. These actuator designs are based on Moog's product heritage in the aerospace, military and industrial markets.  

Moog has the capability to design a solution to fit any naval application.  Actuators can be provided in power ranges from fractional to over 100 horsepower.  One of Moog's strengths is designing actuation systems requiring precise motion control at high bandwidths.  Moog can provide the control systems engineering needed to tune the actuation system for optimal performance.  Additionally, Moog has design and construction experience for actuation systems for undersea control surface applications.  In these applications, the actuators are designed to withstand a lifetime of undersea exposure. 

Moog has been designing electromechanical actuation systems to replace hydraulic actuators for over 25 years.  In many applications, Moog can match the weight, center of gravity and envelop of the hydraulic actuator while improving system performance and reliability.
