Fischer at DSEI 2017

Fischer Connectors is showcasing its new defence and security connectivity solutions at DSEI in London from 12-15 September.

The company partners with prime contractors to provide highly reliable connectivity solutions – both electrical and optical connectors and cable assemblies – mainly for land and dismounted soldier applications to help its customers make their devices smaller, faster and smarter and reduce cost and lead time.

In the Joint Zone of DSEI on stand S4-120, visitors will be able to discover the latest trends in connectivity and find the right solutions for their applications. In the Land Zone, Fischer Connectors will be present in the Dismounted Soldier Showcase row and during the DSEI Seminar Programme, where senior product marketing manager Wim Vanheertum will give his presentation entitled ‘What Modern Soldiers Want: Robust, Fast, Small, Smart Connectors’ (location: East Theatre, Land Zone, North Hall / date and time: Wednesday 13 September, 10:30am-11:30am).

Proven in Dismounted Soldier, Command and Control, and Unmanned and Surveillance applications, Fischer Connectors’ specially designed military connectors are used in most soldier modernisation programmes, especially in C4ISTAR technologies, and meet the need for safe and reliable defence and security operations globally.
