STAR-PAN™ Integrated Soldier Multiport USB Data Hub / Power Distribution Systems
The Battle-Tested, Multiport USB Hub, Cable, and Power Management Solution from Glenair
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:
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.
