New Products: April 2018 Aerospace & Defense Technology

RF Cable

PIC Wire & Cable® (Sussex, WI), a Division of The Angelus Corporation, recently announced the launch of its new RFMATES ® ULTRALITE UH25107 cable. UH25107 is a 50 ohm RF aerospace cable that is highly shielded, light and flexible. The cable's sophisticated design yields low loss characteristics that make it a robust solution for systems requiring a low dB loss budget for antenna runs, like SATCOM and Iridium systems.

Laser Detecting Systems

Whether engaged in an asymmetric fight with an insurgent or a conventional battle with a “near-peer” adversary, today's battlefield presents combatants with significant challenges. Rapidly advancing technology and increased lethality of weapon systems have forced the military to develop and deliver more effective technologies to protect our air and vehicle crews. One such critical technology – laser detecting systems – is designed to detect and alert crews to laser-aided threats.

Designing With Plastics for Military Equipment

U.S. soldiers carry loads of equipment and protective gear that can weigh anywhere from 45 to 130 pounds. This is more than enough to quickly tire even the most well-conditioned personnel, contributing to reduced mobility and impaired decision-making that could result in casualties.
