Shock Screening and Performance Testing


For more than five decades, Trident Maritime Systems has provided a range of maritime shock and performance testing services to ensure that products are suitable for the maritime environment. Not only do we test our own products’ onboard safety and capabilities, we also offer consulting expertise to customers to ensure their products meet the same high standards.

At our in-house NAVSEA-approved testing lab, we conduct medium weight shock testing, perform dynamic design analysis method (DDAM) for shock compliance, test for modal response of structures, and provide expert consulting on every test required to ensure military compliance.

In addition, we offer expert consulting services on testing of all items for shipboard installation, ensuring compliance to commercial standards, including those of the cruise and energy markets.

Our research and development efforts are widely known and highly respected. Working closely with the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard, it is our goal to develop better products and installation techniques that improve performance and reduce cost. We are proud to have successfully completed a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant to develop new, lightweight, low-cost fire-barrier systems for military ships.
