Star-Pan™ Integrated Soldier Multiport USB Data Hub / Power Distribution Systems

Star-Pan™ Integrated Soldier Multiport USB Data Hub / Power Distribution Systems

The Battle-Tested C4ISR Smart Hub and Cable Solution

JTAC-Tough™

Integrated Soldier Power / Data Hubs are Personal Area Network (PAN) hub and interconnect systems providing network data access, peripheral connectivity and smart battery power management for dismounted soldier C4ISR electronics in Digitally Aided Close Air Support (DACAS) missions, including precision targeting, tactical radio communications, real-time video downlink, night vision technologies, GPS/navigation, blue force tracking, personal computing and smart phone integration.

Core capabilities of a soldier-worn PAN hub may include:

Ruggedized soldier-worn electronics have revolutionized mission effectiveness. But the evolution of integrated C4ISR technology for the Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) has added significant mission weight to the soldier ensemble. Battery power management for this broad range of integrated electronic gear is a significant challenge in terms of mission time, weight and supply logistics.

The Glenair integrated STAR-PAN™ soldier data hub and power distribution system enables soldiers to make the most of Personal Area Network (PAN) devices – improving situational awareness, surveillance, intelligence and reconnaissance.

Glenair JTAC-Tough™ STAR-PAN™ technologies optimize power monitoring, conditioning, and distribution performance with on-board smart power management for longer missions and lighter loads. Importantly, all STAR-PAN™ technologies, from the high-density Glenair Mighty Mouse quick-disconnect connectors and cables to the low-profile hub enclosure itself are designed for optimal size and weight reduction as well as ruggedized mil-spec caliber and battle-tested environmental and EMC sealing and shielding.
