Star-Pan™ USB Hub / Power Distribution Systems

Star-Pan™ USB Hub / Power Distribution Systems

The Battle-Tested Smart Hub and Cable Solution for C4ISR Systems

Ruggedized soldier-worn electronics have revolutionized mission effectiveness. But the evolution of advanced radio communications, tactical video, night vision technologies, GPS/navigation, blue force tracking, personal computing and smart phones have 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 to make the most of Personal Area Network (PAN) devices—improving situational awareness, surveillance, intelligence and reconnaissance – while optimizing power monitoring, conditioning, and distribution performance. Importantly, all STAR-PAN™ technologies, from field-proven Glenair connectors and cables to the low-profile hub enclosures are designed for optimal size, weight, and ruggedized mil-spec performance. Glenair STAR-PAN™ hubs feature integrated connectors and brazed construction: no bulky bolt-on connectors to vibrate loose, no tongue – and – groove construction leading to poor environmental or EMC performance.

About Glenair Tactical Interconnect Solutions

Glenair Tactical Interconnect Solutions

Unlike most suppliers of soldier-worn interconnect hubs and cabling, Glenair is not just a system integrator. We design and manufacture all of the core components in our STAR-PAN™ hubs, ruggedized cable assemblies, flex circuit assemblies, and enclosures. Most importantly, the Glenair Series 80 Mighty Mouse, the small form-factor Mil-caliber interconnect designed and produced by Glenair has been a key component in virtually all advanced warfighter platforms. Glenair Mighty Mouse connectors, combined with the company's expertise in ruggedized cabling and integrated electronics have contributed to warfighter effectiveness, including in such benchmark programs as Nett Warrior, Air Warrior, ISSP (Canada DND), Land 200 (Australia DoD), FIST (UK MoD), and ST ACMS (Singapore). Glenair has been at the forefront of interconnect system design for warfighter applications and is committed to meeting the ever-evolving needs of the world's armed services for turnkey, battle-tested interconnect solutions.

STAR-PAN™ Hub and Board Technologies

Glenair STAR-PAN™ USB hub and power distribution interconnect systems are engineered and manufactured under one ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100C certified quality system in our 1,000,000 sq. ft Southern California factory. All components, from the I/O interconnects to the precision-machined enclosures are produced in-house by Glenair. The STAR-PAN™ system is designed for maximum compatibility with non-proprietary Ethernet* and USB data interfaces, and is capable of smart charging and power distribution for the broad range of military batteries, as well as from Direct Current (DC) power sources including vehicle power, solar panels, kinetic energy devices and fuel cells.
