Stealth Technology in Sea Trials

Stealth Technology in Sea Trials

The Visby corvette, the Swedish Navy’s next-generation surface vessel, started engineering trials under Kockums’ supervision in December 2001. These trials are focused on fine-tuning the engines, steering and control systems etc., prior to embarking on more advanced sea trials. The Visby corvette’s combination of multi-mission flexibility and advanced stealth technology at every level makes her a true vessel of the future. The introduction of stealth technology is now forcing a global rethink in terms of naval tactics and Kockums’ new vessel is attracting keen interest. The company has five vessels on order with an option on a sixth vessel.

The Visby-class corvette, which is the first naval vessel to feature fully developed stealth technology, is constructed using carbon fibre. This makes her extremely difficult to detect, even when using the most modern and sophisticated radar and IR-sensor systems. The Visby corvette is designed to keep signatures to a minimum. The hull features large, flat surfaces and sharp edges. Anything that is not absolutely essential on the outside of the hull or superstructure has been built into the main body of the ship, or stays hidden under hatches. To ensure a minimal IR-signature, the gas turbine exhaust pipes and emissions are specially shielded at the stern, close to the surface of the water. The hull is entirely non-magnetic, and onboard equipment is either demagnetised or constructed of non-magnetic materials.
