STAR-PAN™ Integrated Soldier Multiport USB Data Hub / Power Distribution Systems

The Battle-Tested, Multiport USB Hub, Cable, and Power Management Solution from Glenair

STAR-PAN™ Integrated Soldier Multiport USB Data Hub / Power Distribution Systems

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:

  • Ethernet networking
  • USB compatible peripheral support
  • Software-defined radio support
  • Common interconnect interface
  • Charging and battery power management

Powering Soldier Connectivity and C4ISR Mission Success

Ruggedized soldier-worn electronics have revolutionized mission effectiveness. But the ongoing evolution of Digitally Aided Close Air Support (DACAS) missions, including precision targeting, ground and air radio communications, real-time video downlink, GPS/navigation, and personal area network computing has added significant mission weight to the dismounted soldier ensemble. Battery power management for this broad range of electronic gear is a significant challenge in terms of mission time, weight and supply logistics. The Glenair STAR-PAN™ data hub and power distribution system enables soldiers — from standard light infantry to Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTACs) — to make the most of C4ISR devices, improving situational awareness, surveillance, intelligence and reconnaissance while optimizing power monitoring and distribution performance. Importantly, all STAR-PAN™ technologies — from the high-density, NATO standard Mighty Mouse quick-disconnect connectors and cables to the scalable range of low-profile hub enclosures — are designed for optimal size, weight, power, and ruggedized milspec performance with battle-tested environmental and EMC sealing and shielding.

Mighty Mouse 807: The NATO 4695 Standard

Mighty Mouse 807: The NATO 4695 Standard

The Worldwide (NATO) Quick-Disconnect, Open-System Standard for Tactical Soldier Battery and C4ISR Device Interconnection

The STAR-PAN™ System grew out of capabilities gained by designing Mighty Mouse 807 into a broad range of soldier electronic devices and power supplies. Today, the Mighty Mouse 807 QDC dismounted soldier interconnect has both US and NATO STANAG 4695 compatibility — with broader battlefield application than all other tactical soldier connectors combined.
