Military operations are subjected to a variety of challenges. They are characterised by extreme and demanding environmental conditions. Rough terrain, different ground conditions, and extreme weather conditions such as heat, cold, precipitation and dust should not jeopardise the operational readiness of soldiers, special forces, equipment and mission-sensitive applications. The durability and robustness of the material in use are crucial to the success of military operations.  

Recognising and recording environmental conditions can reduce risks for the task force, equipment and infrastructure. In addition, the networking of military units must be ensured and maintained. Operational forces must act efficiently in resolving all kinds of tasks and thereby require information about their surroundings. At the same time, they must use this information to plan and adapt their actions accordingly. For example, situational information about friendly and enemy forces can prove decisive. 

Functionality under extreme operating and environmental conditions

Robust. Resistant. Optimised for demanding applications. These are the features of connection solutions from ODU for military and security technology.
