Solico engineered the radar masts for multiple super yachts. Low weight and radar transparency are the key benefits of composite materials in these structures.

Low maintenance

Steel structures typically require periodic maintenance such as conservation and paint systems to prevent corrosion. Composites are not susceptible to corrosion resulting in lower Life-cycle costs.

Lightweight

The specific weight of composites varies between 1.5 and 2.0 compared to 2.7 to 7.8 for aluminium and steel.

Sonar/Radar Transparency

Composites are very well known for their transparency to radar and low damping properties.
