Cobham Aerospace Communications Slip rings for Tanks and Weapon Systems
Cobham is a leader in the development and production of electrical sliprings (also named as slipring assortment or SRA), which allow electrical bonding (electrical slipring) between rotating and stationary components.
Our slipring assortment consists of standardised and individually manufactured slipring products and embraces most application areas (µA up to kA, µV up to kV, DC up to 500MHz, mW up to MW). We are also open to the opportunity of developing additional functionality and integrating it in our slipring products. Additional functions may consist but are not limited to such options as microwave joints, swivel joints, hydraulic joints, emitters and fibre-optic.
The strength of Cobham is our technical competence, as well as our ability to develop new solutions and to introduce them as an innovation to the market. More than 25 percent of our employees work on assuring the reliability and high-performance of our sliprings and rotary joints.
Submit your slipring specifications and we will be able to provide you with the solution.
Robust slip rings for defence operations
The robust sliprings Cobham supplies for turrets and defence applications are capable of withstanding the intense vibrations experienced during operations. Armoured vehicle sliprings for turrets transmit high-power, as well as signals such as databus, radio and multiplex. Others also contain an NBC air channel and / or an encoder.
For pilot training, sliprings are available for centrifugal machines. They feature high-frequency coaxial cells at 80dB, with 100MHz power rates.
Slip rings for tanks and radars
Sliprings featuring L and X-band rotary joints can be fitted onto radars, enabling power and signals to be transmitted across secure, high-frequency channels. Sliprings can be fitted on tank turrets and military vehicles for frontline operations, allowing power, ethernet, video and CAN buses signals to be transmitted in the battlefield using fibre-optic channels.
Slip rings for weapon systems
Transmission capabilities are enabled on weapon systems, ensuring that troops have operational communications and channels. These solutions can be operated remotely for safety purposes, under protective armour if required. Units are available for the weapon systems of armoured vehicles, providing high-power transmission of data buses, and low and high-frequency signals.
Hybrid joint slip rings and additional functionality
Cobham is a developer of additional functionality and combining it with its slipring products available functions include microwave joints, swivel joints, hydraulic joints, emitters and fibre-optic.
Cobham prides itself on technical competence, along with our ability for the development of new solutions and introducing them as new market innovations. The goal of more than 25% of our employees is to assure the reliability and high-performance of our sliprings and rotary joints.
Since 1946, Cobham has operated in conformity with the requirements of our customers in the aerospace and defence sectors especially referring to electrical sliprings.
More than ever, the quality of electrical sliprings is our main target. The quality assurance department is involved at each stage of the life cycle of our products, from development to manufacturing. Maintaining and improving quality standards is made possible by an ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and EN 9100 compliant company organisation.
To this end, the quality department benefits from specialised human and technical resources for the manufacturing and maintaining operations on electrical sliprings.
COBHAM AEROSPACE COMMUNICATIONS also is a Part-145 maintenance organisation and a Part-21 production organisation approved by La Direction Générale de l’Aviation Civile..
