Military organisations are demanding real-time applications, such as video transmission and video conferencing with their current and future C4I systems. Tactical field radio and microwave communication media are reaching the limit of achieving these demands where higher bandwidths are required. The need for tactical fiber-optic cables to fulfill these operational demands is increasing enormously.
Working closely with leading military services in Europe and overseas, Brugg Cables is challenged to find new innovative cable solutions to meet the needs of harsh field environment communications. The outcome is the new smart BRUfield tactical cable solution, which enables faster deployment and enhancement of your network perimeter.
The new BRUfield tactical fibre-optic cable is a very robust dielectric cable distinguished by its very small diameter (3.8mm only) and very low weight (16kg/km only). With the same size reel you are using with your standard tactical fibre cables, you can deploy double the distance as of today using the BRUfield cable. Furthermore, soldiers would not suffer under the heavy weight since the BRUfield cable is only half the weight of standard tactical cables. Finally, the BRUfield cable meets exceptional specifications, which out-performs standard dielectric cable types.
- Maximum long-term tensile strength 1,250N
- Maximum short term tensile strength 3,000N
- Maximum crush resistant up to 600N/cm
The new BRUfield fibre-optic cable is available as complete cable assemblies mounted with the connectors of your requirement and wound on the reel of your choice, like hand-reels, backpack or vehicle mounted reels up to lengths of 10,000 meters.
Brugg Cables will present the new cable at IDEX, on Swiss Pavilion at Stand n° 08-B37, Abu Dhabi, taking place on 17-21 February 2013.
