ⓘ Advanced Enclosed Mast/Sensor

The US Navys Advanced Enclosed Mast/Sensor system fully integrates advanced materials, structures, and manufacturing technologies with sensor technology, electromagnetics, and signature reduction.

Ship masts, with complex geometry antenna mounted on them and also a lattice design mast, greatly contribute to the radar cross section of ships. AEM / s consists of a faceted fairing, which provides a cleaner exterior profile, with an internal platform on which the antennas and sensors. The fairing material is designed in such a way that the antenna can transmit and receive through the material. The base of the mast is made of reinforced composite skins will end-grain balsa filler. In the upper section of the fairing is composed of structural foam and fiberglass.

In may 1997, V. USS Arthur Radford received the first shipboard installation of the system of the AEM / S, as a proof of concept and advanced technology demonstrator. The sailors reported an unexpected benefit of being able to work aloft in bad weather, increasing the efficiency of preventive work on the ship.

Using the lessons learned from Radford, the Navy has developed the AEM / S in a new class of ships starting with the USS "San Antonio" LPD-17 floating dock.
