Harness with convoluted
Teledyne Storm Microwave harness products are deployed in defense and space applications where minimal risk of failure and high levels of reliability are an absolute must.
These assemblies provide high frequency RF performance, operating up to, and above, 40GHz.
To meet the requirements of mission critical applications, harness assemblies are manufactured in a carefully controlled environment. When necessary, the coaxial cables integrated into a harness solution are terminated and tested within a class 10,000 clean room.
Harness solutions provide for “plug and play” deployment for fast installation and replacement. The keying feature of the MIL-DTL-38999 connector, for example, ensures accurate connector alignment for improved RF performance, as well as provides correct channel to channel mating, avoiding crossed connections.
SOLVING DESIGN CHALLENGES
Multi-channel interconnects can be used to solve a variety of design challenges.
Harness solutions provide a connection that
- Requires minimal installation tools.
- Delivers a compact connector footprint.
- Removes the risk of crossed channels and misconnection
- Simplifies wire management and routing.
- Enables fast installation or replacement
Typical harness applications include:
- Providing an RF interconnect for two system boxes
- Providing RF input & output connectivity within system boxes
- Simplifying connections between two electronics boxes
Our multi-channel harnesses are found in a wide range of airborne, ground, and sea-based systems, including:
- Active Electronically Scanned Arrays (AESA)
- Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
- Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
- Test Labs & Diagnostic Units
- Digital Radios
- Airborne Combat Radar
- Mixed-Signal Applications
