Military Cable Assemblies: Cost-Effective and Durable for Extreme Environments

Cable assemblies are groups of wires or cables arranged into a single unit to meet the needs of a particular purpose. Military cable assemblies are often used in critical functions, so it’s important that they be designed to provide reliable performance in harsh military conditions. To ensure this, they must adhere to military specifications regarding their specific application, environmental conditions, cable construction, and manufacturing materials. 

At Connectronics, we create cost-effective, durable military cable assemblies that adhere to mil-spec standards for optimal performance in extreme military environments. Our company is ISO 9001:2015 certified and ITAR registered to ensure superior quality and industry compliance.

Applications of Cable Assembly for Military including communications, navigation, avionics, ground equipment, emi sensitive equipment

Military Style Connectors

Military industry standards require that all cable assemblies exhibit high levels of strength and durability. Compared to standard electrical equipment, military cables, wires, and connectors must be able to withstand higher levels of impact, vibration, pressure, abrasion, and wear.  

Military cables assemblies and connectors are used in applications exposed to various types of terrain, weather, and combat conditions. Some of the most common applications include:

  • Airborne communication and navigation systems
  • Avionics systems
  • Field communication equipment
  • Satellites and space shuttles
  • Inter-shelter communication equipment
  • Military ground equipment
  • EMI sensitive equipment
  • Marine systems such as ships and submersibles
  • Remote weapons control

Connectronics creates reliable military cable assemblies and connectors that meet and exceed military standards and can even be field assembled if necessary. Our rugged, high voltage connectors can handle voltages up to 60 KVDC, temperatures ranging from -55 °C to 150 °C, and elevations up to 70,000 feet. With these capabilities, our electrical components are suitable for military applications ranging from aviation and radar equipment to underwater marine systems and more.

Quality Assurance

In military applications, electrical component failures can put the entire crew at risk. To ensure optimal reliability, military cable assemblies and connectors must adhere to strict quality assurance standards. At Connectronics, we comply with the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100D Quality Management Systems for the design and manufacture of specialized custom high voltage and high current cables and connectors. We also meet or exceed Supplier Quality Assurance Requirements (SQAR) so all of our customers can feel comfortable relying on our cable assemblies in any military application.

With our many certifications and thorough Quality Management System (QMS), we can ensure high-quality and industry-compliant military cable assemblies and connectors that provide reliable performance in even the harshest conditions.
