Defence against hostile environments
Interconnect solutions from Smiths Interconnect are manufactured and designed with a final purpose in mind. Our solutions are therefore used within the majority of defence applications where standard connectors cannot meet the requirements.
Custom interconnect systems from Smiths Interconnect are rugged to allow for contact, simultaneously providing exceptional performance benefits in adverse environments.
Next generation connector systems
Smiths Interconnect’s spring probe-based connectors have become the leading standard for high-performance accessory interconnects, and continue to be central within land mobile radio interconnection.
Spring probe-based connectors are ideal for antenna applications, accessory interconnection, power delivery, mixed signal and blind mate, as well as being shock and vibration resistant, compliant and able to withstand more than ten amps without a considerable rise in temperature.
Technological solutions for fighter transport and rotary wing aircraft
Smiths Interconnect develops advanced, innovative technological solutions for modern fighter transport and rotary wing aircraft.
Our technology adapts to environmental concerns such as vibration, shock and extreme temperatures, along with reliability required for flight critical systems.
Connector solutions from Smiths Interconnect serve in a range of airframe applications, including navigation systems, communications equipment and cockpit avionics.
