Ratec srl is a company that develops material for the Naval Safety of ships and special forces.
In the new millennium the Armed Forces are improving their action in specialist groups operating in synergy one another. The staff involved in operational faces every day equipment problems related to:
- Functional effectiveness
- Integration with other equipment
under the constraint of security.
Therefore the equipment coming from the market, also CE-marked and having commercial approvals dedicated to the great operational market are impractical from an operational standpoint and require an engineering reinterpretation starting from the functional requirements.
THE ENGINEERING AT THE SERVICE OF OPERATING PERSONNEL
The Ratec srl is at the service of the operational staff to solve problems of security and functionality of the equipment. The process starts with a briefing between specialists and Ratec personnel focusing on requirement and operational capabilities. Ratec srl then lies down specifications of the products in terms of quality (mission, durability, performance).
FROM PROTOTYPE TO THE FINISHED PRODUCT
At the planning stage technicians consider the ergonomics and functionality of the equipment having in mind the following principles:
- The operation should be as simple and easy as possible
- The operation must be certified
- The operation must be unique
- The equipment must comply with the essential safety requirements.
The design phase ends with the creation of the prototype which is always tested on the field in order to verify the performance and integration with other equipment. In the case of type-approval requirements Notified Bodies are involved for accreditation or test.
CONTROL OF THE SERIES
Once established the configuration the production is carried out using certified subcontractors with whom a relationship of ongoing collaboration has been established.
Ratec deliveries products with the ancillary documents (Manuals, Documents Use and Maintenance, spare parts, approvals, etc.) to deliver to the customer a product adapted to the Safety Regulations and respectful of functional requirements.
Ratec srl follows the customer in the operational steps to integrate various products with the best technology available on the market.
