Military Fiber Optics: Rugged, High-Bandwidth Military Defense and Aerospace-Grade Fiber Optic Connectors, Termini, Toolkits and Cable Assemblies for Harsh Application Environments
Series 18Series 180
Military QPL and MCOTS Fiber optic interconnect technologies (MIL-DTL-38999 Type, MIL-DTL-83526 GFOCA Type, MIL-PRF-28876, ARINC 801 and more) deliver high data rate and high bandwidth performance in harsh land, sea, air, space and C4ISR applications. Precision-engineered QPL and commercial fiber optic contacts, or termini (M29504/04, M29504/05, M29504/14, M29504/15, M29504/16, M29504/18, and others) are the key to delivering low data loss and reliable, repeatable performance over long distances in mission-critical applications. But the advantages of a connection system that can transmit the equivalent of 24,000 telephone calls simultaneously through fibers thinner than a human hair — and over longer distances than would ever be possible with copper media — go beyond their mind-boggling data transmission rate.
Harsh-Environment Fiber Optic Connectors and Cable Assemblies
Plus Ruggedized Aerospace-Grade Photonics, Parallel Optic Tx Rx and Xcvr Modules, RF-Over-Fiber Solutions and More
Rugged fiber optic systems carrying digitized video, voice and data are broadly deployed in harsh environments including specialized applications in aircraft avionics, ground systems, initiators, weapon systems, sensors, space, and other high-performance environments. Highly-engineered fiber optic termini, together with their precision-machined and/or injection molded connector packaging, are the key to delivering low data-loss and reliable, repeatable performance in rugged, harsh-applications such as space.
