Steller Systems to Present at 14th International Naval Engineering Conference & Exhibition

Monday, September 24th, 2018

Steller Systems will be presenting at the 14th International Naval Engineering Conference and Exhibition (INEC) in Glasgow on Wednesday 3rd October 2018.  Steller Systems’ Naval Architect George Payne will be presenting alongside MOD Graduate James Wright, who earlier this year conducted a six-month placement at Steller Systems.  Their joint paper, The High-Capacity Expanding Lifeboat HiCEL – Meeting the Modern Search & Rescue Challenge, presents a concept for an innovative, high-capacity lifeboat capable of accommodating up to 500 people.  Despite its capacity, the design fits within the space envelope of conventional lifeboats, and so can be launched and retrieved using existing lifeboat davits on a wide range of vessels.  This is a design that has been developed to meet the challenges of the migrant crisis in the Mediterranean in a pragmatic and cost-effective manner.

The conference, which is organised by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST), takes place from the 2nd to the 4th October 2018 in Glasgow, UK.  Steller Systems will also be exhibiting at the conference, so please come along and meet members of the team.

Steller Systems Supports University Interns

Friday, April 20th, 2018

Last week Steller Systems said goodbye to our Easter intern Abigail Hall.  Abigail spent four weeks with us working on a variety of projects and gaining experience of working for a dynamic naval architecture consultancy.

Steller Systems has hosted a number of university interns over the years and recognises the importance and long-term benefits to the engineering community of giving students the opportunity to gain real-world workplace experience.  Interns bring a fresh perspective to tasks within the company, and in turn our fast-paced and innovative team offers interns a broad range of experience and opportunities from which they can learn.

Abigail was an asset to the company during her time here, we wish her every success in her remaining time at university and hope to see her again in the future.

Steller Systems is Continually Innovating

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

The team at Steller Systems loves to develop innovative yet realistic concept designs to solve existing problems – whether it’s a survivable and cost-effective light frigate, a game-changing unmanned underwater vessel or a unique superyacht designed ‘backwards’ to save its owners time and money.

For example, the team have developed an innovative design for a dedicated humanitarian operations vessel.  This 140m ship includes a 100 bed, NATO Role 3 medical treatment facility, a large forward upper and lower hold with 6500m3 of flexible storage space over two levels, a ramp and vehicle deck, a hangar and a small vehicle garage.  The design has been developed in parallel with a comprehensive operating model and CONOPS in order to provide a more targeted and efficient response to this core aspect of naval operations.

Steller Systems draws on its extensive experience of providing naval architecture and systems engineering support to in-service vessels to ensure that its concept designs are realistic, pragmatic and solve many of the problems encountered in current vessel designs.
