The traditional metal-based military harness shows limitations associated with the use of copper cables in the on-board networks and interconnections. The main advantages of optical fiber data links, when compared to traditional harnessing are higher bandwidth per distance product, mass reduction, EMI free and isolation. These advantages have raised the interest of many system integrators for improving the harnessing in both civil and military platforms.
Our opto-electronic conversion modules allow replacing the traditional electrical harness for an fiber-optic links in order to reduce the harness mass ensuring both electrical and mechanical compatibility with the existing connectors of the interconnected equipments. This will allow introducing optical fibers without impact either in the equipment manufacturing or the assembly, integration and testing processes.
