Truss Structure / Sensor Mast
Truss Structure / Marine Sensor Mast
Our customer designed their own truss structure to be used as a mast for sensors in a maritime environment. Utilizing RWC's stock carbon fiber tubing for their design, the organization supplied custom-designed, 3D-printed, titanium gussets to connect the tubes. The structure was very lightweight, stiff and strong, with a 40% weight savings compared to aluminum tubes. The material offered corrosion resistance for the harsh marine environment in which the sensor mast would be operating.
