Custom Winches | AGO Environmental


In addition to our standard winches, we can make custom modifications to our existing winch designs or design totally custom winches for specific applications.

Examples of previous custom winch projects include:

  • LTJ-1 modified for use as a capstan winch for JASCO Research Ltd, for hauling in tethered hydrophone buoy anchors on vessels of opportunity. Transportable as hand luggage.
  • CSW-7 modified for use by Carolina Unmanned Vehicles, for hauling in Sensor Aerostat Balloons. Custom drum protection frame.
  • PID-02 modified for use by Sonardyne International, for deploying ship-mounted sonar detectors. Custom roof-mounted frame and guards.
  • Custom heavy-duty winch for the US Navy Defense Intelligence Agency. Through-bore slip rings and large capacity.
  • Custom heavy-duty winch for the Large Area Reflective Telescope project, for handling the receiver aerostat.
